- Opposite angles are equal.
- Opposite sides are equal and parallel.
- Diagonals bisect each other.
- Sum of any two adjacent angles is 180°

## What are special Quadrilaterals?

A trapezium is a quadrilateral with one pair of sides parallel. A kite is a quadrilateral with two pairs of adjacent sides equal. A parallelogram is a quadrilateral whose opposite sides are parallel. A square is a quadrilateral that is both a rectangle and a rhombus.

### How do you identify special quadrilaterals by their properties?

Quadrilaterals

- Rectangle. Opposite sides are parallel and equal.
- Square. Opposite sides are parallel and all sides are equal.
- Parallelogram. Opposite sides are parallel and equal.
- Rhombus. All sides are equal and opposite sides are parallel.
- Trapezium. A trapezium has one pair of opposite sides parallel.
- Kite.

### What are the six special quadrilaterals?

**Why are special quadrilaterals special?**

The special quadrilaterals are the parallelogram, rectangle, rhombus, square, trapezium and kite. It is important for students to have experiences with a variety of shapes in order to develop flexible mental images. Students need to be able to recognise shapes presented in different orientations.

#### What are the six major special quadrilaterals?

Write the names of each of the six special quadrilaterals on the board: rectangle, square, parallelogram, rhombus, trapezium and kite.

#### What quadrilateral has no parallel lines?

trapezium

In India and Britain, they say trapezium ; in America, trapezium usually means a quadrilateral with no parallel sides.) An isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid whose non-parallel sides are congruent.

## What are characteristics of a quadrilateral?

Quadrilaterals. Quadrilateral just means “four sides” ( quad means four, lateral means side). A Quadrilateral has four-sides, it is 2-dimensional (a flat shape), closed (the lines join up), and has straight sides.

## What do all quadrilaterals have in common?

There are many different kinds of quadrilaterals, but all have several things in common: all of them have four sides, are coplanar, have two diagonals, and the sum of their four interior angles equals 360 degrees.

**What quadrilateral has 4 sides?**

Rhombus: A quadrilateral with four congruent sides; a rhombus is both a kite and a parallelogram Rectangle: A quadrilateral with four right angles; a rectangle is a type of parallelogram Square: A quadrilateral with four congruent sides and four right angles; a square is both a rhombus…

### What are the different types of quadrilaterals?

They are classified according to measures of equal angles and equal sides. There are seven different types of quadrilaterals: parallelogram, rhombus, rectangle, square, kite, trapezoid, and isosceles trapezoid. Types of quadrilaterals often overlap, so that a figure that fits in one category may also fit in another.
