|Vocab term||Definition||Diagram||Theorem||Point of Concurrency|
|Midsegment||A segment that connects the midpoints of two sides of a triangle.||The segment is parallel to the opposite side and 1/2 as long.|
|Perpendicular Bisector||A segment that bisects a side and forms a right angle.||The point of concurrency is equidistant from the vertices of a triangle.||Circumcenter|
|Angle Bisectors||A segment that bisects an angle.||The point of concurrency is equidistant to the sides of the triangle.||Incenter|
|Medians||A segment that connects the vertex to the opposite side.||From the vertex to the point of concurrency is 2/3 the distance of the entire length of this segment.||Centroid|
|Altitudes||A segment from the vertex perpendicular to the opposite side.||Orthocenter|
