What is a medial triangle?


Julia Neal

The medial triangle is the triangle formed by connectiong the midpoints of the three sides of an original triangle.

This is our original triangle. The first step is to find the midpoint of each of the triangles three sides.

These three points will be the vertices of the medial trianlge. Now we need to connect them to find the sides of the medial triangle.

This blue triangle is our medial triangle.
