A web page and interactive applet show how to compute the perimeter of a trapezoid. A trapezoid is shown that can be resized by dragging its vertices. As you drag, the perimeter is continuously recalculated.
Text on the page explains that the perimeter is the sum of the sides. For those who prefer it, in a formula that is given.
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.
