Based on two classes of the orthogonal expansions in a triangle, superconvergence of m-degree triangular finite element solution (for evenm) and its average gradient (for oddm) at symmetric points for a second order elliptic problem are studied. There are no other superconvergence points independent of the coefficients of elliptic equation.
