Title: Reflect on This
Url: http://illuminations.nctm.org/Lesson.aspx?id=1410
Publisher: National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
 Description: This geometry lesson from Illuminations examines regular polygons. Students will study reflections using hinged mirrors and examine the interior angles of regular polygons. The lesson allows students to look at the relationship between the number of sides in a regular polygon and the measure of its central angles. An animated video demonstrating the experiment is included with the lesson. The lesson is intended for grades 9-12 studying geometry and should take two class periods to complete.
