Toothpick Puzzle


Examine geometry first hand by using this web activity to draw boxes using toothpicks. To move a toothpick, click on it with the mouse and drag it to the desired location. You may also rotate a toothpick by 90 degrees if you click on the toothpick and then press 'R' on the keyboard. (P. 128, Merrill Algebra 2: With Trigonometry)
