Students can learn to visualize the effects of multiplying a fixed positive number by positive numbers greater than 1 and less than 1 with this tool. Using interactive figures, students can investigate how changing the height of a rectangle with a fixed width changes its area. e-Math Investigations are selected e-examples from the electronic version of the Principles and Standards of School Mathematics (PSSM). The e-examples are part of the electronic version of the PSSM document. Given their interactive nature and focused discussion tied to the PSSM document, the e-examples are natural companions to the i-Math investigations.

In this assessment task the student will determine the length and height of a shape on a flashcard. They will be asked to use comparing words such as longer or shorter to tell about length of two rectangles. They will also be asked to use comparing words such as taller or shorter to tell about the height of two cans or cylinders. The 2 flashcards along with directions, a recording sheet and rubric are provided.

In this lesson plan, students are tasked with designing a playground at their school. Each section has its own requirement for each quadrilateral. In the end, they must be able to defend their shape against a classmate's of why they choose the shape. They must also list any other quadrilateral that could be drawn in that space.

An interactive applet and associated web page that show the definition and properties of a rectangle in coordinate geometry. The applet has a rectangle with draggable vertices. As the user re-sizes the rectangle the applet continuously recalculates its width, height and diagonals from the vertex coordinates. Rectangle can be rotated on the plane to show the more complex cases. The grid, coordinates and calculations can be turned on and off for class problem solving. The applet can be printed in the state it appears on the screen to make handouts. The web page has a full definition of a rectangle when the coordinates of the points defining it are known, and has links to other pages relating to coordinate geometry. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com.
