Geometry course from Learning Math
This online geometry course includes readings, problems, videos, interactive activities, homework problems and solutions. It is meant for K-8 teachers but will work well for middle school students as well.
Absorb Mathematics is an excellent interactive course written by Kadie Armstrong, a mathematician. The lessons in it contain interactivity, explanations, and quiz questions. The course concentrates on geometry and trigonometry but includes a few other topics as well. While most of the content is accessible by a fee only, some lessons are available as free samples.

Kiselev's Geometry / Book I. Planimetry
A famous Russian geometry book translated. Acclaimed for the clarity of exposition which makes the book accessible for 7th graders.
A High School First Course in Euclidean Plane Geometry
This is a high school geometry course by Charles Aboughantous. It is based on Euclid's five postulates and his most common theorems. It promotes the art and the skills of developing logical proofs. Practice problems are included at the end of each chapter in three groups: geometric construction problems, computational problems, and theorematical problems. The answers to the computational problems are included at the end of the book. The solutions manual of the book contains detailed solutions to all the problems in the book. It is free to home schooled students upon proof of purchase of the book. Samples are found at http://home.earthlink.net/~draboughantous/geometry.html
Why is High School Geometry so Difficult A HomeschoolMath.net article
And what to do about it. In this article, I investigate the reasons and remedies for why so many students find their high school geometry course to be difficult.
How to Write a Solution
An article exploring aspects of how to write a clear solution - or proof. Meant for college students but helpful for anyone who wants to learn to write mathematical proofs.
A set of Java applets that bring to life the theorems in Euclid's Elements.
