The Create activity: Islamic Design  - nice work on coordinates, reflection, rotation and translation (4 page pdf).

Compass, ruler and protractor interactive

The Compass, Ruler and Protractor flash file can be used live (but work cannot be saved). Unfortunately as it is a flash file it will not work with iPads and iPhones. Can also be used with any on-screen video maker (such as that found in ActivInspire or Smart Notebook) to create videos for classroom demonstrations. The pencil here works as a straight edge; the ruler can be used to measure.
