### About This Chapter

## MTTC Math (Secondary): Quadrilaterals - Chapter Summary

Prior to taking the MTTC Math (Secondary) examination, reinforce your existing knowledge of quadrilaterals with this chapter's video lessons. These lessons will prepare you for any test questions that address:

- The types and properties of quadrilaterals
- Properties of parallelograms
- Angles and sides of a rhombus
- Aspects of geometric kites
- Properties of rectangles, squares and trapezoids

Learn more about quadrilaterals from instructors who have years of experience when you watch these informational video lessons. Make use of the video tags for going from topic to topic or review the written transcripts if you prefer. Take the lesson quizzes to make sure you have a strong grip on the material.

### 1. What is a Quadrilateral? - Definition, Properties, Types & Examples

This lesson explains the definition and properties of a quadrilateral. We will look at examples of two categories of quadrilaterals. At the end, you will be able to test your knowledge with a quiz.

### 2. Parallelograms: Definition, Properties, and Proof Theorems

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can identify parallelograms. You will see the unique properties that belong to the parallelogram. You will see the special side and angle characteristics needed to prove a certain shape is a parallelogram.

### 3. What Is a Rhombus? - Definition and Properties

Watch this video lesson to learn why rhombuses are a special type of quadrilateral. Also, learn why a rhombus is also a parallelogram. Watch as we explore the sides and angles of a rhombus.

### 4. Kites in Geometry: Definition and Properties

A kite in geometry looks a lot like a kite in the sky! Watch this video lesson to see for yourself. Also, learn about the side and angle properties of kites that make them unique.

### 5. Rectangles: Definition, Properties & Construction

Watch this video lesson to learn a bit about rectangles. Learn why rectangles are the building blocks of many homes. Also, learn about the properties that make a rectangle unique from other shapes. Finally, learn how you can draw one.

### 6. Squares: Definition and Properties

Squares can be found in many places in the real world. Watch this video lesson to see how useful they can be and also to learn how to find the perimeter and area of a square.

### 7. Trapezoids: Definition and Properties

Watch this video lesson to learn what a trapezoid has to do with a triangle. Also, learn the special words that describe the various parts of a trapezoid. You will also see special types of trapezoids.
