An interactive applet and associated web page that describe the Euler line. It shows a triangle whose vertices can be dragged. As you drag them, the centroid, circumcenter and orthocenter move appropriately, showing that they are always collinear, always lying on the Euler line. There are controls to individually turn on the construction lines for each center. This helps visualize the concept since if they are all drawn at once, the diagram would be hopelessly confused. The web page has a full d
