Google Tip: Math Calculations

Math Teachers - This is for you!

Teaching students about area and/or perimeter?  Let's get a little help from Google.  Search Google for "Triangle Calculator."

Enter your values in the appropriate entry boxes and watch Google produce the answer.  Change the values and notice the answer will adjust as well.  To see how the problem was done, step-by-step, click the arrow at the bottom of the calculator window.

To show your students how to solve for other parts of a triangle, use the drop-down arrow to the right of the "Solve for area" text at the top of the calculator.

Man, I love Google!

You can also try this with a circle and other polygons (up to 10 sides):
  • circle
  • square
  • rhombus
  • rectangle
  • pentagon
  • hexagon
  • heptagon
  • octagon
  • nonagon
  • decagon
