Dynamic Geometry: Bssic constructions
Tenth graders explore Cabri Jr. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders investigate the menus, tools, and capabilities of Cabri Jr. as a tool to enhance student understanding. The lesson includes the construction of a triangle and the perpendicular bisectors of a triangle and an investigation into the sum of the measures of the angles of a triangle.

Polygon Centers: A Balancing Act
Students find a way to locate that center on regular polygons other than a triangle. They create sketches, print them, glue them to poster board, and try to balance the polygon at the proposed center point. They submit a written summary of their plan.
