## What is a quadrilateral Year 4?

Quadrilaterals have 4 straight sides and 4 angles.

A quadrilateral is a four-sided two-dimensional shape. The following 2D shapes are all quadrilaterals: square, rectangle, rhombus, trapezium, parallelogram and kite.

What are the properties of a quadrilateral kids?

A quadrilateral is a 2D shape that is closed with four straight sides. The sides do not have to be the same length. Quadrilaterals have four sides, four vertices, and four interior angles that add up to 360°.

### What are the types of quadrilaterals and their properties?

Square All sides are equal. All angles are equal and measure 90°.
Rectangle Opposite sides are parallel. Opposites sides are equal. All angles are equal and measure 90°.
Rhombus All sides are equal. Opposite angles are equal.

What is the name of a 4 sided shape?

Definition: A quadrilateral is a polygon with 4 sides. A diagonal of a quadrilat- eral is a line segment whose end-points are opposite vertices of the quadrilateral.

#### What are the 4 types of quadrilaterals?

• Trapezium.
• Parallelogram.
• Rectangle.
• Rhombus.
• Square.
• Kite.

#### What are the attributes of a quadrilateral?

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 are the measurements of a quadrilateral?

Quadrilaterals are polygons with exactly four sides and four angles. One of the facts about a quadrilateral that we need to understand is that the sum of the four angles in a quadrilateral is always \\(360^\\circ \\). That is, if you add up each of the four angles in a quadrilateral, the total measure is \\(360^\\circ \\).

## 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.

## What are the rules of a quadrilateral?

Rules for Quadrilaterals. 1. These rules are the same for all quadrilaterals: a) They are all polygons. b) The interior angles ALWAYS add to 360 degrees. 2. These are the rules for rectangles a) The diagonals of a rectangle are congruent and bisect each other. b) Opposite sides are ALWAYS parallel.
