Geometry in Motion


Employing Java Sketchpad, this interactive site explores dozens of topics in geometry, allowing the user to drag points and lines of geometric figures, to change curves and angles, and to put "geometry in motion." This visualization helps users make conjectures that can later be verified or rejected through formal proof.

Geometry Graphing

 Students practice using their graphing calculators for drawing and labeling points, lines, planes, and angles. To check their work, they select the View Solution button, which is located directly under each problem. courtesy of netTrekker

Retrograde Motion

Retrograde Motion This excellent interactive provides a first hand look at retrograde motion. Features include the ability to manipulate the radius of 3 different planets, the planet you're "looking from" and the one you're "looking at". The Introduction, How To, Exercises and Solutions sections

Fractal Geometry

Fractal Geometry From the National Science Foundation, this site offers a short explanation of the complex topic of Fractals. The best part is the opportunity to create a "Pythagorean Tree" using any angle from 0 through 90 degrees. The site makes for an excellent follow-up to a more thorough

Water Motion

Water Motion This interactive tutorial allows students to 'manipulate' wind speed in order to see what effects that has on wavelength, wave height, wave speed and wave frequency. There is also an explanation of the buoy system used for testing waves. Prentice Hall • Learning Games

Virtual Geometry

Virtual Geometry The page is a portal to a collection of virtual manipulatives — nearly 30 in all, arranged alphabetically from Cob Web Plot to Turtle Geometry. Besides the manipulatives, each topic (i.e. "Tanagrams") offers a complete explanation and a list of appropriate standards.

Color in Motion

Color in Motion An interactive site by Claudia Cortes introduces color in a fun way. There are animated figures that explain how you can use colors to communicate and how colors symbolize certain emotions and events. There are activities such as a kaleidescope and a scene maker where you can
