Quadrilaterals are four-sided two-dimensional shapes that are composed of straight lines. The basic composition of these geometric figures has four edges and corners and the interior angles add to three-hundred and sixty degrees. Normally you will find six classifications of quadrilaterals. A rectangle has opposite sides that are equal and all corners are ninety degrees. A square has all sides that are equal and all angles equal to ninety degrees. In a rhombus all sides are equal and the opposite sides are parallel. Parallelograms have equal sides and opposite sides are parallel. Trapezoids have two parallel sides. The kite is well, just the kite.

These worksheets explains how to understand and work with quadrilaterals. Your students will use these activity sheets to practice constructing different quadrilaterals by drawing or the use of tangrams. Instructors are encouraged to have tangram sets available.

Why Do We Study Quadrilaterals?

Do you have a standard bit of scratchpad paper sitting close to you to write down notes as you read? Assuming this is the case, you really have a case of a quadrilateral sitting close to you! A quadrilateral is a two-dimensional and four-sided shape. The four focuses where the sides meet are known as the vertices of the quadrilateral, and the line portions associating vertices on inverse corners are known as the diagonals of the quadrilateral.
You might be believing that the term quadrilateral appears to cover a variety of shapes on the off chance that it just implies that it has four sides. You are correct! There are numerous kinds of quadrilaterals. A few quadrilaterals you have most likely known about, for example, a square shape or a square, while you may not be acquainted with different quadrilaterals, for example, a rhombus or an isosceles trapezoid.
