Learning Geometry Online

Experience proves that anyone who has studied geometry
is infinitely quicker to grasp difficult subjects
than one who has not. (PLATO)
For today’s Technology Tip we have some websites for our Math teachers to enjoy.  Of course, according to Plato we could all use a little more geometry in our lives..  These sites are also good examples of the kinds of interactive tutorials that students can find online: 
Middle School Geometry from IES inc. in Japan:

Geometric Terms Activities at Quia.com:

Geometry Manipulatives Online from the
Utah State University
:

And don't underestimate the value of playing an online educational game. As many teachers know, "educational game" is not an oxymoron at all. Here are just a few of the many online geometry games and activities that could be used to help students understand geometry concepts.
