This term we have been studying the different centers of triangles: the orthocenter, the circumcenter, the incenter and the barycenter. The last one is also the center of gravity of a triangle, so in order to check this property we have made some cardboard triangles in which we have drawn the medians to get their barycenters.
Once we got the centers of gravity of our triangles we fixed them using a thread to the ceiling of our drawing classroom.
Here you can see the results!
