Description:  A web page and interactive applet showing the definition and properties of a rectangle. The applet shows a rectangle where the user can drag any vertex. The other points then move in such a way that the figure remains a rectangle at all times. A control to hide the details allows a classroom discussion where students can try to infer what the properties are as it is reshaped by the discussion leader. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. After use in the classroom, student can access it again from any web browser at home or in the library with no login required. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com.
