Calculating angles

This ITP allows you to place shapes around a point and investigate their angles. You can opt to display the shapes in one, two or four quadrants. The first shape is placed on the screen in the first quadrant with one of its sides horizontal.

Additional shapes are rotated around the central point to fit against the previous shape. In some shapes side lengths and angles are generated randomly. Shapes generated can be dragged to new positions and overlaid to form new intersecting shapes and angles.
