**NAMING**POLYGONS**Let's Discuss**What does the word “polygon” mean? What is the smallest number of sides a polygon can have? What is the largest number of sides a polygon can have?**Triangle**Octagon Quadrilateral Nonagon Pentagon Decagon Dodecagon Hexagon n-gon Heptagon**Hip Bone’s connected to the…Classifying Polygons**Polygons with 3 sides… Triangles Polygons with 4 sides… Quadrilaterals Polygons with 5 sides.. Pentagons But wait we have more polygons Polygons with 6 sides… Hexagons Polygons with 7 sides… Heptagons Polygons with 8 sides… Octagons But still we have more polygons Polygons with 9 sides… Nonagons Polygons with 10 sides… Decagons Polygons with 12 sides… Dodecagons And now we have our polygons**A VERTEX is the point of intersection of two sides**CONSECUTIVE VERTICESare two endpoints of any side. A B F C A segment whose endpoints are two nonconsecutive vertices is called a DIAGONAL. E D Sides that share a vertex are called CONSECUTIVE SIDES.
