Flashcard Content Overview

While many shapes are given their own specific name, they can be grouped under a broader category based on similar properties they share with other figures. Non-regular shapes that have no name can be categorized using the same method. This flashcard set focuses on the broader shape heading of 'quadrilaterals'. Do you know what the shared characteristics of quadrilaterals are? Can you identify if they are convex or concave? Use this flashcard set to test your knowledge of quadrilaterals and the shapes that are under this title.

Studying with Flashcards

We are used to calling shapes by their common name (i.e. rectangle, square, etc.), but we have to remember that many shapes can be classified in more than one way. Think of this as a way to group shapes by common properties so there is less that you have to know in order to classify each one. For example, what if you are asked to identify a shape but the interior angle measures and side lengths are unknown? Is it a rectangle? A parallelogram? After studying this set you will see that labeling it as a quadrilateral takes away the need to know the additional measurements. Use this flashcard set as a way to master the various shapes that fall under the quadrilateral heading or to run through it quickly before a test. Either way, it can provide you with a quick reference when needed.
