Displaying and Editing Side Lengths

You can display the side lengths of a shape. If you edit the displayed length, SMART Notebook Math Tools recalculates and displays the lengths of the other sides.

NOTES

If you display these lengths and then edit the vertices of the shape, SMART Notebook Math Tools updates the labels and displays the new side lengths.

You can also display interior angles.

To display side lengths

  1. Select the shape.

  2. Press the shape's menu arrow, and then select Show/Hide Side Lengths.

SMART Notebook Math Tools calculates the lengths based on the rulerís default units.

NOTE: To hide, press the shape's menu arrow, and then select Show/Hide Side Lengths again.

To edit side lengths

  1. If you haven't done so already, display the side lengths.

  2. Double-press the side length you want to change.

  3. Type the new length.

  4. Press somewhere else in the whiteboard area.

SMART Notebook Math Tools recalculates and displays the lengths of the other two sides.
