An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the alternate exterior angles that are formed where a transversal crosses two lines. The applets shows the two possible pairs of angles alternating when in animation mode. By dragging the three lines, it can be seen that the angles are congruent only when the lines are parallel. When not in animated mode, there is a button that alternates the two pairs of angles. The text on the page discusses the properties of the angle pairs both in the parallel and non-parallel cases. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

Short pieces of chenille stem arranged inside a box look like a random jumble of line segments—until viewed in the proper perspective.

Note: This activity is detail oriented and time intensive. It’s done by threading a long length of fishing line through twenty small holes, and then attaching short pieces of chenille stem to create a suspended pattern. When you look through a viewing hole, that random-looking pattern resolves into the form of a chair. If you think being a watchmaker is something you’d hate, then you might want to rethink doing this Snack!

An interactive applet and associated web page that introduce the concept of an angle. An angle made from two line segments is shown that the user can adjust by dragging the end points of the segments. In real time, as the angles is changed by the user, the angle measure in degrees is shown and a message telling what type of angle it currently is: acute, right, obtuse, reflex or straight. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

This task provides a construction of the angle bisector of an angle by reducing it to the bisection of an angle to finding the midpoint of a line segment. It is worth observing the symmetry -- for both finding midpoints and bisecting angles, the goal is to cut an object into two equal parts. The conclusion of this task is that they are, in a sense, of exactly equivalent difficulty -- bisecting a segment allows us to bisect and angle (part a) and, conversely, bisecting an angle allows us to bisect a segment (part b). In addition to seeing how these two constructions are related, the task also provides an opportunity for students to use two different triangle congruence criteria: SSS and SAS.

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the bisector of an angle. An angle is shown using two line segments that can be dragged to change the angle measure. The angle is bisected by a line which moves while dragging to always divide the angle into two equal angles. The angle measures can be turned off for class discussions. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

An interactive applet that acts as a 'digital manipulative' for explaining angles measured in degrees. The applet has an angle formed from two segment that can be dragged around in a circle. The angle measure is shown against a 'clock face' calibrated in degrees. The measures can be turned off for class angle estimation discussions. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

This is a lesson plan for a project based learning activity geared towards high school students who are enrolled in a geometry class. The project has the students discover how geometry is connected to real world situations instead of being just a subject taught in a classroom. The Indiana Academic Standards that may apply to this activity are G.LP.2, G.T.1, G.T.5, G.QP.1, G.CI.4, G.TS.3, and G.TS.5.
