2DefinitionA quadrilateral is a closed geometric figure with four sides, four vertices, and four angles.The segments of a quadrilateral intersect only at their endpoints.QuadrilateralsNot QuadrilateralsNon consecutive sides should not intersectMore than 4 sidesMust only contain Segments3 sides
3Naming Quadrilaterals Quadrilaterals are named by listing their vertices in order. There are many names for the quadrilateral below. Some examples are quadrilateral ABCD, quadrilateral BCDA, or quadrilateral DCBA.
4SidesAny two sides, vertices, or angles of a quadrilateral are either consecutive or nonconsecutive.In a quadrilateral, nonconsecutive sides, vertices, or angles are also called opposite sides, vertices, or angles.
5DiagonalsSegments that join nonconsecutive vertices of a quadrilateral are called diagonals.
