Title: All in the Family
Description:
In this Illuminations lesson, students use a dynamic geometry applet to conjecture about the relationships between characteristics of a square: side length, diagonal length, perimeter, and area. Students use graphs to represent functional relationships between two characteristics, such as diagonal length as a function of perimeter. In addition, there are links to online activities, reproducibles, and other related resources.

Title: IGD: Simson Line
Description:
This student interactive, from Illuminations, helps students understand and investigate a triangle s Simson line, which is the line passing through the feet of the perpendiculars dropped from P to the three sides of a triangle. Students construct the Simson line for a given triangle using the interactive applet.
Standard(s): [MA2015] MI1 (912) 11: Describe the development of mathematical tools and their applications. (Alabama)

Title: Triangle Classification
Description:
This student interactive, from an Illuminations lesson, allows students to turn a segment into a right triangle, an isosceles triangle, and an obtuse triangle.
Standard(s): [MA2015] GEO (912) 17: Prove theorems about triangles. Theorems include a line parallel to one side of a triangle divides the other two proportionally, and conversely; and the Pythagorean Theorem proved using triangle similarity. [GSRT4]
