Geometry construction using a compass and straightedge

This page shows how to construct the
medians of a triangle
with compass and straightedge or ruler. A triangle has three medians.
They are lines linking a
vertex
to the
midpoint
of the opposite side. We first find the midpoint, then draw the median.
