This is part one of a two-part E-example from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics that demonstrates the potential for high-quality experiences provided by computer "shape" environments for students as they learn concepts described in the Geometry Standard. In this part, students use an interactive applet to choose a picture and use seven provided pieces to fill in the outline. E-examples are selected from the electronic version of the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM). Less
