Lesson  (...)
Lesson: Introduces students to length, perimeter and area.

Activity  (...)
Activity: Step through the generation of the Koch Snowflake -- a fractal made from deforming the sides of a triangle, and explore number patterns in sequences and geometric properties of fractals.

Activity: Calculate the length of one side of an automatically generated right triangle by using the Pythagorean Theorem, and then check your answers. Pythagorean Explorer is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Step through the generation of Sierpinski's Triangle -- a fractal made from subdividing a triangle into four smaller triangles and cutting the middle one out. Explore number patterns in sequences and geometric properties of fractals.

Activity: Calculate the area of a triangle drawn on a grid. Learn about areas of triangles and about the Cartesian coordinate system. Triangle Explorer is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.
