ALL Multi-Session Course: The Euler Line: Is This a Triangle’s DNA?

February 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Triangle

In high school geometry, we learned that the three medians of a triangle intersect at a single point. The same was true for the angle bisectors, the perpendicular bisectors of the sides, and the altitudes – the four points associated with a triangle. Three of those points lie on a straight line and define the Euler line, a line segment, named for its discoverer, the Swiss mathematician, Leonhard Euler. Sharpen your pencils and bring a compass and straight-edge to explore some special points in, on, and around triangles.
