    I really enjoyed the interactive activity of using the shapes to comply with
    the description. So much language can be elicited from the comparison! I can
    see a whole classroom doing it, and having the students compile the
    statistics to see who did what & how (orientation, placing shapes on the
    congruent side vs. a vertex, identifying possible transformations and number
    of different combinations... WOW!)

    Following the triangles & quadrilateral activities, I started Geometer's
    Sketchpad on a second window, and had fun solving them on the computer,
    instead of folding paper (I do a lot of origami, and do use it to teach).
