Dynamic Paper

  • Dynamic Paper

    Create customized activity sheets for your classroom.

    This applet allows you to create the following:

    • Nets - two-dimensional outlines of three-dimensional shapes, including regular polyhedra, prisms, pyramids, cylinders and cones
    • Graph Paper - coordinate graphs, polar coordinates, logarithmic graph paper
    • Number Lines - including positive and negative coordinates
    • Number Grids - hundreds boards and the like
    • Tessellations - tiling patterns involving triangles, quadrilaterals, and hexagons
    • Shapes - pattern blocks, attribute blocks, and color tiles
    • Spinners - up to 16 sectors, with adjustable sizes

    Select the type of image you want from the dropdown, enter values for the parameters, and click Add to insert an image into the workspace. On the workspace, you can adjust the size of the image; to change other characteristics, use the toolbar to the right.

    The Reset button will restore the default values for all parameters.

    The + and - keys can be used to create additional pages, and the arrow keys can be used to move back and forth between them. Images that you create will be inserted on the current page; if you delete that page, the images will be deleted, too.

    The eraser button will delete individual images on the current page, while the trash can icon will delete all pages and erase all images.
