<ul><li>“Quad” means four. Why would all of these shapes be called “ quad rilaterals”? </li></ul><ul><li>Each shape has four sides. </li></ul>square parallelogram rhombus rectangle Quadrilaterals trapezoid
2.
In this slide show you will learn that we identify quadrilaterals by: and the length of their sides. their angles
3.
Square <ul><li>A square has four sides that are each the same length. </li></ul><ul><li>It also has four right angles (perfect corners). </li></ul>1 2 3 4
4.
Rhombus <ul><li>A rhombus has four sides that are each the same length. </li></ul><ul><li>But it has two acute and two obtuse angles. </li></ul>acute acute obtuse obtuse
5.
Square and Rhombus <ul><li>A square and a rhombus both have four sides that are the same length. So, how are they different? </li></ul>
6.
Square and Rhombus <ul><li>A rhombus can be thought of as a slanted square. </li></ul><ul><li>If we push on the left-hand side of this square, it might end up looking like… </li></ul>a rhombus.
7.
The only difference between a square and a rhombus is their angles .
8.
Trapezoid <ul><li>A trapezoid has four sides. </li></ul><ul><li>Two sides are parallel. </li></ul><ul><li>The opposing two sides are not parallel. </li></ul>Those are parallel. Those are not parallel.
9.
Rectangle <ul><li>A rectangle has four sides – two long sides and two short sides. </li></ul><ul><li>Two sides are parallel. </li></ul><ul><li>The opposing two sides are also parallel. </li></ul><ul><li>It also has four right angles. </li></ul>
10.
Parallelogram <ul><li>A parallelogram has four sides – two long sides and two short sides. </li></ul><ul><li>Two sides are parallel. </li></ul><ul><li>The opposing two sides are also parallel. </li></ul><ul><li>But, it has two acute and two obtuse angles. </li></ul>
11.
Rectangle and Parallelogram <ul><li>A parallelogram can be thought of as a slanted rectangle. </li></ul><ul><li>If we push on the left-hand side of this rectangle, it might end up looking like… </li></ul>a parallelogram.
12.
The only difference between a rectangle and a parallelogram is their angles .
13.
Use the following table to make comparisons using the quadrilaterals. For example, what do a square and a rectangle have in common?
14.
Quadrilaterals 2 sets 2 acute 2 obtuse 2 long, 2 short Parallelogram 2 sets 4 right angles 2 long, 2 short Rectangle 1 set different angles different lengths Trapezoid 2 sets 2 acute 2 obtuse 4 same length Rhombus 2 sets 4 right angles 4 same length Square PARALLEL LINES ANGLES SIDES SHAPE
