|Tool: Inscribed Angle of a Circle - Math Open Reference||
|Go to:||http://www.mathopenref.com/circleinscribed.html (opens a new window)|
An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the inscribed angle of a circle--the angle subtended at the periphery by two points on the circle.
The applet presents a circle with three points on it that can be dragged. The inscribed angle is shown and demonstrates that it is constant as the vertex is dragged. Links to other related topics such as Thales Theorem.
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.
