Unit 2

Topic
Teacher Note: We will limit triangle centres to drawing them, except Centroid, which we will find algebraically. Finding Centroid algebraically(given definition) would then be an appropriate Application question for the test. Finding any other centre algebraically (given definition) would be an appropriate Problem Solving question for the test.
