### 6.3 Properties of Parallelograms

Goal #1:

How to use properties of parallelograms to solve problems in geometry.

Goal #2:

How to use properties of parallelograms to solve real life problems.

6.3 Properties of Parallelograms
Parallelogram
• A parallelogram is a quadrilateral whose opposite sides are parallel.
Lesson Investigation

Part A - Instructions

• In pairs, use a straightedge to draw two parallel segments on a piece of patty paper. Then draw two other parallel segments to form a parallelogram.
• Place a second piece of patty paper over the first and copy the parallelogram onto the second.
• By moving the copies around, what conjectures can you make about the properties of parallelograms.
• You have ten minutes!!!
• Part A – Guiding Questions
• How do the lengths of the opposite sides compare?
• How do the sizes of the opposite angles compare?
• How do the sizes of consecutive angles compare?

Parallelogram

• Part A – Guiding Questions
• How do the lengths of the opposite sides compare?
• How do the sizes of the opposite angles compare?
• How do the sizes of consecutive angles compare?

Lesson Investigation

• Part B – Instructions
• Draw or fold the two diagonals of the parallelogram.
• Place a dot at their intersection.
• You have five minutes!!!
• Part B - Guiding Questions
• How do the segments of each diagonal compare?
• What can be said about the intersection of the diagonals?
• How many congruent triangles are formed within the parallelogram?

Properties of Parallelograms
• THM 6.3: The opposite sides of a parallelogram are congruent.
• THM 6.4: The opposite angles of a parallelogram are congruent.
Properties of Parallelograms
• THM 6.5: The consecutive interior angles of a parallelogram are supplementary.

The San Francisco Bay Bridge, like many bridges, uses parallelograms in its structural design.

Engineers use properties of parallelograms to build and repair bridges.
