Practice identifying types of triangles: obtuse, right, isoleses and equilateral. Learn how to find the area of a triange and use the Pythagoran Theorem to find the length of the hypotenuse.

Identify different polygons. Learn to find the perimeter of a rectangle and the area of a rectangle.

Circle: find the circumference and the area.

Review what you've learned about geometry

Shapes and Designs was created to help students to:

Picture Vocabuary



parallel: lines in a plane that never meet

perpendicular: lines at right angles to each other

right angle: an angle of 90 degrees

quadrilateral: four sided polygon

triangle: three sided polygon

pentagon: five sided polygon

hexagon: six sided polygon

heptagon: seven sided polygon

octagon: eight sided polygon

symmetric, reflection symmetry: a shape whose reflection is an identical shape

angle sum:

verical angles: angles that are opposite at an intersection of lines.

complementary: two angles that add up to 90 degrees

supplementary: two angles that add up to 180 degrees

acute: an angle less than 90 degrees

obtuse: an angle greater than 180 degrees

ray: a part of a line starting at a point and including all points to one side.

rectangle: a parallelogram with 4 right angles (including squares)

regular polygon: a polygon with all sides of equal length

rhombus: a quadrilateral with all sides of equal length

right triangle: has one 90 degree or right angle

rotation symmetry: a shape that can be rotated less than 360 degrees and look the same.

scalene triangle: no side lengths are equal

straight angle: 180 degree angle

tiling: aka tesselation: covering a surface with shapes that leave no gaps.
