An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the concept of similar polygons. Applets show that polygons are similar if the are the same shape and possibly rotated, or reflected. In each case the user can drag one polygons and see how another polygons changes to remain similar to it.

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.
