### Ideas for activities

Angles in a Triangle

Show that when you move the points of a triangle the angles always sum to 180o Angle in a Semicircle

Show that the angle drawn in at the circumference from either ends of the diameter is always 90o. Polygons

Make a poster showing the basic polygons and their names. For example

Triangle

Quadrilateral

Pentagon

Hexagon

Heptagon

Parallel Lines

Move intersecting parallel lines to show that alternate, vertically opposite and corresponding angles are always equal. Tangram

Accurately construct the perfect Tangram puzzle after first calculating the required lengths and angles. Rotational Symmetry Triangle Centres

Research different ways of finding the centre of a triangle. Investigate the conditions under which at least two of the following coincide:

Centroid

Circumcenter

Incenter

Orthocenter.

Unit Circle

Show the relationship between sine and cosine in a dynamic unit circle. Transformations

Find the transform tools then make dynamic diagram showing what each type of transformation looks like. ### Related activities
