This site teaches the Geometry of Circles to High Schoolers through a series of 1084 questions and interactive activities aligned to 9 Common Core mathematics skills.
This geometry lesson shows that that an inscribed angle is half of a central angle that subtends the same arc. [Geometry playlist: Lesson 24 of 31]
Build your own system of heavenly bodies and watch the gravitational ballet. With this orbit simulator, you can set initial positions, velocities, and masses of 2, 3, or 4 bodies, and then see them orbit each other.
This interactive Flash animation allows students to explore size estimation in one, two and three dimensions. Multiple levels of difficulty allow for progressive skill improvement. In the simplest level, users estimate the number of small line segments that can fit into a larger line segment. Intermediate and advanced levels offer feature games that explore area of rectangles and circles, and volume of spheres and cubes. Related lesson plans and student guides are available for middle school and high school classroom instruction. Editor's Note: When the linear dimensions of an object change by some factor, its area and volume change disproportionately: area in proportion to the square of the factor and volume in proportion to its cube. This concept is the subject of entrenched misconception among many adults. This game-like simulation allows kids to use spatial reasoning, rather than formulas, to construct geometric sense of area and volume. This is part of a larger collection developed by the Physics Education Technology project (PhET).
This 10-minute video lesson shows that three points uniquely define a circle and that the center of a circle is the circumcenter for any triangle that the circle is circumscribed about.
