circumcenter
where all the perpendicular bisectors of a triangle intersect
perpendicular bisector
Bisects a segment and is perpendicular to it.
bisect
to cut exactly in half
centroid
The point of concurrency of the medians of a triangle
median
a line that goes from a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side
midsegment
A segment connecting the midpoints of 2 sides of a triangle
altitude
a line going from a vertex to the opposite side, making a right angle
angle bisector
a ray that divides an angle into 2 congruent angles
orthocenter
the point of concurrency of the altitudes of a triangle
incenter
the point of concurrency of the angle bisectors of a triangle
perpendicular
2 lines that intersect to form a right angle
parallel
never intersecting
supplementary

circumscribe
To draw a circle around, touching all vertices
inscribe

corresponding angles
Angles that have the same position on two different parallel lines cut by a transversal.
alternate interior angles
angles between 2 lines and on opposite sides of a transversal
alternate exterior angles
Angles that lie outside a pair of lines and on opposite sides of a transversal.
same side interior angles
