# Triangle

(View Complete Item Description)

An interactive applet and associated web page that introduce the concept of a triangle. The applet shows a triangle where the user can drag the vertices to reshape it. As it is being dragged a base and altitude are shown continuously changing. Demonstrates that the altitude may require the base to be extended. The text on the page lists the properties of a triangle and lists the various triangle types, with links to a definition of each. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com.

# Acute triangle

(View Complete Item Description)

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the three types of triangle: acute, obtuse and right. The applet shows a triangle that is initially acute (all angles less then 90 degrees) which the user can reshape by dragging any vertex. There is a message changes in real time while the triangle is being dragged that tells if the triangle is an acute, right or obtuse triangle and gives the reason why. By experimenting with the triangle student can develop an intuitive sense of the difference between these three classes of triangle. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

# Obtuse triangle

(View Complete Item Description)

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the three types of triangle: acute, obtuse and right. The applet shows a triangle that is initially obtuse (one angle greater than 90 degrees) which the user can reshape by dragging any vertex. There is a message changes in real time while the triangle is being dragged that tells if the triangle is an acute, right or obtuse triangle and gives the reason why. By experimenting with the triangle student can develop an intuitive sense of the difference between these three classes of triangle.

# Congruent Triangles

(View Complete Item Description)

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the concept of congruent triangles. Applets show that triangles a re congruent if the are the same, rotated, or reflected. In each case the user can drag one triangle and see how another triangle changes to remain congruent to it. The web page describes all this and has links to other related pages. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

# Triangle inequality

(View Complete Item Description)

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the concept of triangle inequality. The applet shows a triangle where the vertices can be dragged to reshape the triangle It shows that no matter what you do, the longest side is always shorter than the sum of the other two. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

# Triangle Circumcenter

(View Complete Item Description)

The applet shows a triangle which the user can resize by dragging any of its vertices. It shows the three perpendicular bisectors of the sides and the point where they intersect - the circumcenter. These track the changes in the triangle in real time. It shows that the circumcenter may lie outside the triangle. The associated web page describes the properties of the circumcenter and points out that it the center of the triangle's circumcircle. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

# Similar Triangles

(View Complete Item Description)

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the concept of similar triangles. Applets show that triangles are similar if the are the same shape and possibly rotated, or reflected. In each case the user can drag one triangle and see how another triangle changes to remain similar to it. The web page describes all this and has links to other related pages. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

# Isosceles triangle

(View Complete Item Description)

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate isosceles triangles (two sides the same length). The applet presents a triangle where the user can drag any vertex. As the vertex is dragged the others move automatically to keep the triangle isosceles. The angles are also updated continuously to show that the base angles are always congruent. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

# Equilateral triangle

(View Complete Item Description)

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate equilateral triangles (all sides the same length). The applet presents an equilateral triangle where the user can drag any vertex. As the vertex is dragged, the others move automatically to keep the triangle equilateral. The angles are also updated continuously to show that the all interior angles are always congruent. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

# Art and Ecology

(View Complete Item Description)

Artists are often particularly keen observers and precise recorders of the physical conditions of the natural world. As a result, paintings can be good resources for learning about ecology. Teachers can use this lesson to examine with students the interrelationship of geography, natural resources, and climate and their effects on daily life. It also addresses the roles students can take in caring for the environment. Students will look at paintings that represent cool temperate, warm temperate, and tropical climates. In this lesson students will: Identify natural resources found in particular geographic areas; Discuss ways in which climate, natural resources, and geography affect daily life; Apply critical-thinking skills to consider the various choices artists have made in their representations of the natural world; Make personal connections to the theme by discussing ways they can be environmental stewards; Identify natural resources found in particular geographic areas; Discuss ways in which climate, natural resources, and geography affect daily life; Apply critical-thinking skills to consider the various choices artists have made in their representations of the natural world; Make personal connections to the theme by discussing ways they can be environmental stewards.
