Polygons with equal area

This applet is part of the lesson on Constructing Polygons with Equal Area posted in Mathematics for Teaching blog.

1. Drag point B. What do you notice about the area of the polygon?
2. Drag point A. What polygons are formed? What can be said about its area?
3. Drag points A and C to form a pentagon. 

Sorry, the GeoGebra Applet could not be started. Please make sure that Java 1.4.2 (or later) is installed and active in your browser (Click here to install Java now)
