Background Tutorials

Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.

The term quadrilateral is a really fancy sounding name for a certain kind of polygon. Did you know that there are special types of quadrilaterals? Watch this tutorial to learn about quadrilaterals and their special types.

Draw polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

Got a closed figure with three or more sides? Then you have a polygon! In this tutorial, you'll learn about the properties of a polygon, see the names of the most popular polygons, and learn how to identify polygons. Check it out!
