Chapter 6: Polygons and Quadrilaterals

Difficulty Level: Basic Created by: CK-12


This chapter starts with the properties of polygons and narrows to focus on quadrilaterals. We will study several different types of quadrilaterals: parallelograms, rhombi, rectangles, squares, kites and trapezoids. Then, we will prove that different types of quadrilaterals are parallelograms.
