# Online resources for geometry: games, activities, worksheets, tutorials, and books

I have gathered many lists of online resources for geometry. The games and activities are grouped topics—please see the following menu.

This page itself contains a list of general geometry websites, worksheets, and books.

##
**General geometry websites**

**Great Pyramid**

**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.

## Worksheets
