Reviewer Comments:

This activity investigates the medians of a triangle using Geometer's Sketch Pad. Geometer's Sketch Pad is a free application that should be downloaded prior to assigning the lesson. The activity could still be done without sketch pad, provided students have experience in geometry constructions. The activity is well written and includes an answer sheet.
