An interactive applet and associated web page that provide step-by-step instructions on how to find a median of a triangle using only a compass and straightedge. The method used involves bisecting one side, then drawing a line from this midpoint to the opposite vertex.
The animation can be run either continuously like a video, or single stepped to allow classroom discussion and thought between steps.
Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. After use in the classroom, student can access it again from any web browser at home or in the library with no login required.
This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com.
