Midsegment: Theorem & Formula

1. Midsegment: Theorem & Formula

Learn about the midsegment of a triangle and the way in which it's found. Read about the properties of the midsegment as they relate to the base, angles, perimeter and area, and then test your knowledge with a short quiz.

Segment Bisector: Definition & Example

2. Segment Bisector: Definition & Example

This lesson explains types of segment bisectors and demonstrates examples of segment bisectors. We will also review the definitions of some key vocabulary words.

Constructing the Median of a Triangle

3. Constructing the Median of a Triangle

If you have one triangle and want to divide it, you can use a median line. Medians have special geometric properties that we'll learn about in this lesson.

Centroid: Definition, Theorem & Formula

4. Centroid: Definition, Theorem & Formula

Have you ever wondered how to find the balancing point of a triangle? The answer can be found in this lesson on the centroid of a triangle! We'll learn how medians are used to locate the centroid and then discuss its various properties.

Orthocenter in Geometry: Definition & Properties

5. Orthocenter in Geometry: Definition & Properties

This lesson involves a well-known center of a triangle called the orthocenter. Its definition and properties will be discussed, and an example will be worked showing how to find its location on a graph.

Triangle Inequality: Theorem & Proofs

6. Triangle Inequality: Theorem & Proofs

In this lesson, we will use definitions and proofs to learn what the triangle inequality theorem is, why it works, and how to use it to determine if three given line segments can form a triangle.

Inequalities in One Triangle

7. Inequalities in One Triangle

Triangles show up all the time in the world around us. This lesson discusses some of the inequalities that describe the lengths of the sides of a triangle and the measurements of the angles. We'll look at theorems, proofs, and applications involving these inequalities.

Inequality Theorems for Two Triangles

8. Inequality Theorems for Two Triangles

Watch this lesson to learn about two inequality theorems that can help you compare two triangles to each other. You'll also go through some practice problems with complete explanations.

Congruence in Overlapping Triangles

9. Congruence in Overlapping Triangles

This lesson provides an introduction to determining if triangles that overlap are congruent to each other. It also defines congruent triangles and explains the five ways to prove triangles congruent.
