Geometry
Focus: Relationships between Figures
The student will compare and contrast the following quadrilaterals based on properties: parallelogram, rectangle, square, rhombus, and trapezoid 


Essential Knowledge and Skills 
 Compare and contrast attributes of the following quadrilaterals: parallelogram, rectangle, square, rhombus, and trapezoid.
 Identify the classification(s) to which a quadrilateral belongs, using deductive reasoning and inference.

Essential Understandings 
 Why can some quadrilaterals be classified in more than one category? Every quadrilateral in a subset has all of the defining attributes of the subset. For example, if a quadrilateral is a rhombus, it has all the attributes of a rhombus. However, if that rhombus also has the additional property of 4 right angles, then that rhombus is also a square.

 Classifying Quadrilaterals  Activity A: Apply constraints to a quadrilateral, and then reshape and resize it. Classify the figure by its constraints. Explore the differences between the different kinds of quadrilaterals.
 Classifying Triangles: Place constraints on a triangle and determine what classifications must apply to the triangle.
 Special Quadrilaterals: Apply constraints to a parallelogram and determine what type of figure results.
