  1. Convex Polygon - definition and an interactive polygon to experiment with This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. Creating Polygons - investigating the Concept of Triangle and the Properties of Polygons (from NCTM) A lesson plan can be found at this site
  3. Identify Polygons - names of polygons by number of sides and angles - instruction and review, practice, and a quiz This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data and This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  4. Name that Polygon - identify name of given polygon components - instruction and review, practice, and a quiz This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data and This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  5. Polygon Playground - arrange designs with online movable polygons - hundreds of polygons to drag anywhere you want This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data also This interactive site would work well on an interactive whiteboard

  8. Minimal Convex Polygon Decomposition Demo - an applet which will decompose a polygon into a minimal number of convex polygons This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  9. Pattern Blocks - This is a little program that lets you make geometrical patterns out of blocks. It's just like playing with wooden pattern blocks, but there is one big difference: a group command, which makes it much easier to build large patterns.
