Rectangles, Rhombi, and Squares

Rectangles, Rhombi, and Squares

Description:
  1.  

    Define rectangle and identify the characteristics that make a rectangle special from just being a parallelogram (four right angles, diagonals are congruent).

  2.  

    Define rhombus and identify the characteristics that make a rhombus special from just being a parallelogram (four congruent side lengths, the diagonals are perpendicular).

  3.  

    Define square and identify the characteristics that make a square special from just being a parallelogram (four right angles, four congruent side lengths, diagonals are congruent, diagonals are perpendicular).

  4.  

    Provide some examples that allow practice identifying the special quadrilaterals based upon given characteristics.

  5.  

    Provide examples that demonstrate how to use the characteristics of rectangles, rhombi, and squares to solve for unknown variables, unknown side lengths, and unknown angle measures.

 

This packet should help a learner seeking to understand the characteristics of rectangles, rhombi, and squares.
