four-side polygon.
Special Quadrilaterals
• Parallelogram
• Rectangle
• Rhombus
• Square
• Trapezoid
Parallelogram
• Both pairs of opposite sides
are parallel and congruent.
Both pairs of opposite angels
are congruent.
Rectangle
• Parallelogram with four right
angles.
Rhombus
• Parallelogram with four
congruent sides
Square
• Parallelogram with four
congruent sides and four right
angles.
Trapezoid
• Exactly one pair of opposite
sides is parallel.

  2. 2. Quadrilateral • A quadrilateral is a four-side polygon.
  3. 3. Special Quadrilaterals • Parallelogram • Rectangle • Rhombus • Square • Trapezoid
  4. 4. Parallelogram • Both pairs of opposite sides are parallel and congruent. Both pairs of opposite angels are congruent.
  5. 5. Rectangle • Parallelogram with four right angles.
  6. 6. Rhombus • Parallelogram with four congruent sides
  7. 7. Square • Parallelogram with four congruent sides and four right angles.
  8. 8. Trapezoid • Exactly one pair of opposite sides is parallel.
  9. 9. Classifying Quadrilaterals • Quadrilaterals can have more than one name because the special quadrilaterals sometimes share properties. • The best name is the one that is the most specific.

  12. 12. Try This! • Give all the names that apply to each quadrilateral. Then give the name that best describes it.
  13. 13. Try This! • Give all the names that apply to each quadrilateral. Then give the name that best describes it. • The figures has opposite sides that are parallel so it is a parallelogram. • The figures has four right angles, so it is a rectangle. • Rectangle is more specific so it is the best name.
  14. 14. Try This! • Give all the names that apply to each quadrilateral. Then give the name that best describes it.
  15. 15. Try This! • Give all the names that apply to each quadrilateral. Then give the name that best describes it. • The figures has exactly one pair of opposite sides that is parallel, so it is a trapezoid.. • Trapezoid is the name that best describes this quadrilateral.
