    I'm looking for a list of geomtric shapes

    I'm teaching an ESL course on technical English and want to a segment on 2 and 3 dimensional geometric shapes. Does anyone have a place where one can download printable drawings of these? I would prefer not to have to do the drawing myself! You would think this would be an easy thing to find, but either I'm being extremely stupid in my search or...
    Thanks

    Do you have MS Powerpoint or even MS Word?

    They both have quite a few, that you can make to whatever size you want.

    Hope this helps

    Re: I'm looking for a list of geomtric shapes

    I should have mentioned that I googled the term and did the wiki search. Those are fine if you are going to use the info on-line. I was looking basically for drawings that I could download and lift into text.
    enchanted learning I also saw but don't want to become a member.
    I have now just created the document and used some of the shapes in Word.
    Thanks for the information.

    Yes. It's surprising what Word/PowerPoint have got hidden away!
    And best of all, they're free with the package!

    ...or any other graphics tool - Visio gives you loads.

    Yes, I was going to mention Visio, but whilst most people have Word & PowerPoint, there's not many of us out there who use Visio, despite its excellence.

    I thought, when Microsoft bought it, that they might put some muscle behind its marketing. But, (as often with Microsoft ) they only bought it to stifle competition for their own, less good but more popular, products.

    PS But don't get me started, or some Gates-lover will be asking me for documentary evidence - which is precious hard to come by (for reasons that I suspect have something to do with Microsoft's corporate lawyers )
