There are a number of different triangle centers. There are four that we will be working withâ€¦incenter, circumcenter, centroid, and orthocenter. Keeping them all straight (no pun intended) can be daunting. Seriously! Let's see if this helps! |

**altitude**is the distance from one vertex to the opposite side forming a perpendicular line
centroid: the intersection of the triangle's medians **median**is the distance from one vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side
Special Note: The orthocenter, incenter, and circumcenter are collinear and the line through these three points is called the Euler Line. |
