Objectives: SWBAT Classify polygons SWBAT determine the sum of the measures of the interior angles of a polygon SWBAT determine the measure of one interior angle of a regular polygon

Polygon – simple, closed figure formed by three or more line segments
Polygon – simple, closed figure formed by three or more line segments . Segments intersect only at endpoints. 1

1 How are polygon’s classified? octagon decagon hexagon
By the number of sides they have octagon decagon hexagon 1

1 What are regular polygons?
A polygon that has all sides congruent and all angles congruent. 1

Determine whether the figure is a polygon
Determine whether the figure is a polygon. If it is, classify the polygon. If it is not a polygon, explain why. The figure has 5 sides that only intersect at their endpoints. Answer: It is a pentagon.

A B C D Classify the polygon. A. nonagon B. regular hexagon
C. Regular heptagon D. regular pentagon A B C D

A B C D Which best describes the figure? A. hexagon; regular
B. hexagon; not regular C. octagon; regular D. octagon; not regular A B C D

A B C D Which best describes the figure? A. polygon; regular
B. cone; regular C. quadrilateral; not regular D. not a polygon A B C D

A B C D Which best describes the figure? A. hexagon; not regular
B. pentagon; not regular C. pentagon; regular D. not a polygon A B C D

Find the sum of the measures of the interior angles of a heptagon.
1260° B ° C ° D ° Read the Test Item The sum of the measures of the interior angles is (n – 2)180. Since a heptagon has 7 sides, n = 7.

Solve the Test Item (n – 2)180 = (7 – 2)180 Replace n with 7. = 5 ● 180 Simplify. = 900 Multiply. The sum of the measures of the interior angles of a heptagon is 900°. Answer: The answer is C.

A B C D What is the sum of the interior angles of an octagon? A. 540°

A B C D What is the sum of the interior angles of a 25-gon ? A. 540°

TRAFFIC SIGNS A stop sign is a ___________ ___________.
What is the sum of the measures of the interior angles in a stop sign? What is the measure of one interior angle in a stop sign? Divide the sum by 8 to find the measure of one angle. 1080 ÷ 8 = 135 Answer: So, the measure of one interior angle in a stop sign is 135°.

A B C D Find the measure of each interior angle of a regular decagon.
