Shape Recognition Let’s start off real basic! Can you name these geometric shapes? Go ahead and label them! Diamond or Rhombus Pentagon Square Circle Trapezoid Triangle
Properties of Basic Shapes Now let’s quickly go over some properties of basic shapes. . .
Triangles Triangles can be distinguished by their _____ and their ______ sides angles All six of these characteristics can be combined. . . (see the next slide)
Classifying Triangles Since triangles are distinguished between their sides and angles we can also categorize them by their sides and angles. Can you place these triangles accordingly in the diagram?
Quadrilaterals Q: Does anyone know what a quadrilateral is? D: A quadrilateralis a four sided figure. Q: Can you think of a geometric shape that would fit this description? These are just some examples. Square Parallelogram Diamond Trapezoid Rectangle Review: Quadrilaterals∙ By: EnchantedLearning.com
Classifying Quadrilaterals Quadrilaterals can best be classified by their ____________. The Venn Diagram below demonstrates how the quadrilaterals can be classified accordingly. parallel lines 0 = Zero parallel lines 1 = One set of parallel lines 2= Two set of parallel lines 2 2 2 Parallelogram Diamond 1 0 Rectangle
Regular Polygons Q: Does anyone know what a regular polygon is? D: A regular polygon is a polygon where all the sides are the same and all the interior angles are the same. Q: Can you think of a geometric shape that would fit this description? 3-sided regular polygon 4-sided regular polygon 5-sided regular polygon 6-sided regular polygon 8-sided regular polygon Review: A Study of Regular Polygons ∙ By: TantekÇelik
Line Symmetry Q: Does anyone know what line symmetry is? D. Line symmetry is when one half of an image is the mirror image of the other half Sometimes shapes/figures can have more than one line of symmetry. This is an example of a pentagon having line symmetry See if you can figure out anymore lines on symmetry between either the pentagon or the hexagon Review: Line Symmetry∙ By: homeschoolmath.net
Rotational Symmetry Q: Does anyone know what rotational symmetry is? D. Rotational symmetry is when there is a center point around which the object is turned a certain number of degrees and the object still looks the same. That is it matched itself a number of times while it is being rotated. (Webquest) Review: Rotational Symmetry∙ By: Webquest
