Lesson 2: Specific Quadrilaterals



Students will conduct research of the following quadrilaterals, its properties and definition that makes each one distinct from all other quadrilaterals.

  • Square
  • Rectangle
  • Parallelogram
  • Trapezoid
    • Right Trapezoid
    • Isosceles Trapezoid
    • Non-special Trapezoid (scalene trapezoid)
  • Rhombus
  • Kite

Students will then use a CAD program to draw each shapes accurately. Students will measure the side and angles. Students will also measure diagonals length and angles.

Finally students will write using the CAD program text tool, statements that define each shape.
