**STOP POLYGONS – Introduction**

A polygon is closed plane figure with three or more sides. A stop sign is an example of a polygon. It has vertices and no segments intersect. STOP

A polygon is closed plane figure with three or more sides. A stop sign is an example of a polygon. It has vertices and no segments intersect. All segments of the polygon must intersect with two other segments at their endpoints. These are all polygons

All segments of the polygon must intersect with two other segments at their endpoints. Lastly , they enclose space in a plane. These figures ARE NOT polygons. Does not close space and does not have segments joined with the endpoints of two other segments.

**STOP POLYGONS – Introduction**

Polygons are named by their number of sides. The more familiar ones have 3, 4, 5, and 8 sides. The word polygon comes from the Greek language meaning “many angles”. Hence a triangle, “tri” means three, has three angles. STOP

Hence a triangle, “tri” means three, has three angles. Let’s name all the polygons from 3 – 10 sides. Number of Sides Polygon Name 3 Triangle 4 Tetragon 5 Pentagon 6 Hexagon 7 Heptagon 4 3 6 5 7

**POLYGONS – Introduction**

Polygons are classified as convex or concave. Convex the easiest way to describe a convex polygon is it doesn’t collapse on itself. If I would extend the sides of the polygon, none of them would cut through the interior of the polygon.

13
**POLYGONS – Introduction**

Concave these polygons collapse on themselves. They look like they have a “notch” in them. When I extend the sides, the line cuts through the polygon.

**POLYGONS – Introduction**

Concave these polygons collapse on themselves. They look like they have a “notch” in them. When I extend the sides, the line cuts through the polygon. Also, two vertices of the polygon can be connected “outside” of the polygon.

**POLYGONS – Introduction**

Regular Polygons - convex - all sides are equal length ( equilateral ) - all angle measures are equal ( equiangular )

Irregular Polygons - convex OR concave - sides are not equal in length - all angle measures are NOT equal

To work with polygons we need to label them. When labeling their vertices, start at one vertice and then move clockwise in consecutive order. Don’t skip letters. A B D C
