An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the relationship of the interior and exterior angles of a polygon. The applet shows an irregular polygon where one vertex is draggable. As it is dragged the interior and exterior angles at that vertex are displayed, and a formula is continuously updated showing that they are supplementary. The tricky part is when the vertex is dragged inside the polygon making it concave. The applet shows how the relationship still holds provided you get the signs of the angles right.
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.
