**Polygon Potpourri**Go fly a kite Puzzling Parallelograms Mistaken Identity 200 200 200 200 400 400 400 400 600 600 600 600 800 800 800 800 1000 1000 1000 1000**Row 1, Col 1**What is concave ? Not Convex.**1,2**What are parallelograms? Being a quadrilateral with both pairs of opposites sides makes any figure a member of this not so exclusive club.**1,3**What is a rhombus? Often mistaken for one of my relatives, I am this type of figure.**1,4**What is a kite? Spanish for “cometa” this quadrilateral has two pairs of consecutive congruent sides, but the opposite side lengths are not congruent.**2,1**What is similar? Figures that share a resemblance. Also figures that are the same shape but not necessarily the same size.**2,2**What is 116 degrees? The figure is a parallelogram**2,3**What is an rectangle? A convex quadrilateral that has two sets of parallel sides, diagonals that bisect each other, and four right angles.**2,4**What is 13 units? Using the Pythagorean theorem with the right triangles formed by the kite’s diagonals would allow us to find the length TU.**3,1**What is an equilateral triangle? There is a much more “normal” way to say equiangular, equilateral, convex and nine sided.**3,2**What is “they bisect each other”? This important quality is a characteristic of the diagonals of quadrilaterals that are also parallelograms.**3,3**What are squares? I could see how you were confused awhile ago, but yes I am both rectangle, and rhombus. No apology necessary.**3,4**What is 88 degrees? The measure of angle K in this kite.**4,1**What is the midsegment of the trapezoid? Parallel to each base, this length is as long the average of the bases in any trapezoid.**4,2**What is a kite? • Of the following I am definitively not a parallelogram. • Rhombus • Kite • Square • Rectangle**4,3**What is an isosceles trapezoid? I’m often called my brother’s name but don’t fall into that “trap” in addition to having parallel bases my legs are also congruent.**4,4**What is 125 degrees? The measure of angle K in this Kite.**5,1**What is (n-2) x 180 P.I.A.T.? By sub-dividing convex polygons into triangles a mathematician was able to come up with this theorem for finding the interior angle measures for a polygon.**5,2**What is 1? This value of ‘x’ makes the quadrilateral a parallelogram.**5,3**What is a square? It appears as thought I am composed of four isosceles right triangles.**5,4**What are 120 degrees (x2), 40 degrees, and 80 degrees? The angle measures of a kite where the four principle interior angles are 3x, 3x, x, and 2x .
