**Angle Find!**

Click on the angle with the given angle measure within a geometric figure. Three different modes: Easy Cornering, Parallel Play, and Tangled Angles. Practices your ability to estimate angles and your knowledge of vertical angles, corresponding angles, and angles in a triangle.

**Key to Geometry Workbooks**

Here is a non-intimidating way to prepare students for formal geometry. *Key to Geometry* workbooks introduce students to a wide range of geometric discoveries as they do step-by-step constructions. Using only a pencil, compass, and straightedge, students begin by drawing lines, bisecting angles, and reproducing segments. Later they do sophisticated constructions involving over a dozen steps-and are prompted to form their own generalizations. When they finish, students will have been introduced to 134 geometric terms and will be ready to tackle formal proofs.

**Geometry Bridge**

An interactive review lesson on types of angles, types of triangles, angle sum of a triangle, and the Pythagorean Theorem, for 5th-7th grade students. You get to build a bridge!

**Turtle Pond**

Estimate length and angle measure while guiding a turtle to a pond using computer commands.

**Dr. Math Introduces Geometry: Learning Geometry is Easy! Just ask Dr. Math!**

A supplement to middle school geometry, *Dr. Math Introduces Geometry* has a light tone, clear layout, and humorous cartoons by Jessica Wolk-Stanley. The best part is that the explanations to math questions are accurate and clear. You'll find answers to dozens of real questions from students who needed help understanding the basic concepts of geometry. This book covers angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, area, perimeter, Pi, circle parts, polyhedra, surface area, volume, nets, congruent transformations, and symmetry. Price: about $12 new, $1-$6 used.

**Geometry worksheets & quizzes**

Worksheets about complementary and supplementary angles, parallel, perpendicular, and intersecting lines, types of angles, basic shapes, area & perimeter of rectangles, and parts of a circle.
