This is a 32-page guide for teachers. It contains the definitions, properties and tests for rhombuses, kites and trapezia. Proofs of the properties and tests are given. Constructions for rhombuses, kites and trapezia are provided.

This is a 44-page guide for teachers. It contains theorems on chords, arcs, angles and secants associated with circles.

How long is the Australian coastline? See Dr Derek Muller and Simon Pampena discussing the perimeter of the Australian coastline. Find out how the accuracy of that measurement depends on the length of the 'measuring stick' used. They discuss how a coastline is much like a fractal such as 'Koch's Snowflake'!

These seven learning activities, which focus on 'open-ended tasks' using a variety of tools (software) and devices (hardware), illustrate the ways in which content, pedagogy and technology can be successfully and effectively integrated in order to promote learning. In the activities, teachers use investigations in order ...

Explore rotational symmetry. Observe how many times a shape will fit exactly into itself as it is rotated through 360° about its centre. Explore rotational symmetry in numbers, letters, regular polygons and other shapes. Relate the order of symmetry to the factors of 360°.

Examine examples of single shapes. Use the Wand tool to compare the sides, right angles and lines of symmetry for each shape, to work out its features. This learning object is one in a series of nine objects.

Examine examples of pairs of shapes. Use the Modify tool to rotate, enlarge, reduce and flip each shape in a pair, to work out its features. This learning object is one in a series of nine objects.

Explore a secret garden to find shapes with three or more lines of symmetry. Look for shapes that are hidden in objects, for example, a flower, tent and bird bath. Use the testing wand to fold the shapes into matching halves. Check your prediction. Find and test more hidden shapes. This learning object is one in a series ...

Explore a secret garden to find shapes with one line of symmetry. Look for shapes that are hidden in objects, for example a pond, paving stone and park bench.
