Exploring Polygons

2
What is a polygon? Polygons are many-sided figures, with sides that are line segments. Polygons are named according to the number of sides and angles they have. Can be “regular” – all sides and all angles are equal to each other

3
**Isosceles Triangles Two sides of equal length Three acute angles**

Sum of angles = 180°

4
**Equilateral Triangles**

All sides equal length Three acute angles Sum of angles = 180° Is a regular polygon

5
**Scalene Triangles No sides are equal No angles are equal**

May have obtuse angle Sum of angles = 180 °

6
**Rectangles Opposite sides are parallel**

Opposite side are equal in length Each angle equals 90° Sum of angles = 360°

7
**Squares All sides equal All angles equal and are 90 ° each**

Sum of angles = 360 ° Is a regular polygon

8
**Trapezoids Two sides are parallel Has obtuse and acute angles**

Sometimes has a right angle Sum of angles = 360 °

9
**Rhombuses (rhombi) All four sides of equal length**

Opposite angles are equal – 2 acute angles, 2 obtuse angles Sum of angles = 360 ° Regular polygon

10
**Parallelograms Opposite sides parallel Opposite sides equal in length**

Opposite angles equal Sum of angles = 360 °

11
Pentagons 5 sides Sum of angles = 540 ° Regular polygon

12
Hexagons 6 sides Sum of angles = 720 ° Can be regular polygon

13
Octagons 8 sides Sum of angles = 1080 ° Can be regular polygon

14
Decagons 10 sides Sum of angles = 1440° Can be regular polygon
