The Incas were a civilization in western South America near Cuzco, Peru. You may have heard of Machu Picchu, an ancient fortress city of the Incas in the Andes Mountains. The Incas were superb craftsmen and architect-engineers. Nazca Lines are geoglyphs (drawings on the ground) that are believed to have been created by The Incas during the 15th and 16th centuries. There are about 300 figures – among them are geometric shapes. 

When you get to the website you’ll find geometry problems with step-by-step solutions, proofs, colorful animations, quizzes, puzzles, quotations, and more. Click on the featured ilustration that interests you or scroll down the page to find the “Table of Content” for more. 

There is lots of content here – so much, in fact, that we weren’t able to review it all. Therefore, as always, parents should preview the site to determine suitability for your own children.
