Resources - Fixing Points


Fixing points is an interactive teaching program (ITP) which allows you to create a number of connected vertices on a grid. The grid size can be changed, and the grids hidden and revealed. As each vertex is created it is labelled and joined to the previous one. To close a shape select a vertex at any point and drag it onto the required point to create a closed shape. Once a shape has been created, its vertices can be dragged to new positions to create new shapes. Lengths of sides can be measured using a ruler.
