# Ch 8: Quadrilaterals: Homeschool Curriculum

The Quadrilaterals unit of this High School Geometry Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about parallelograms and other 4-sided figures. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

## Who's it for?

This unit of our High School Geometry Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about parallelograms and other 4-sided figures. There is no faster or easier way to learn about quadrilaterals. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about the properties of parallelograms, rhombuses, kites, trapezoids and more traditional quadrilaterals.
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a math curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
• Gifted students and students with learning differences.

## How it works:

• Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
• Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
• Short quizzes and the Quadrilaterals unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

• Illustrate and explain the construction of rectangles.
• Learn to apply the area formula for rectangles.
• Define squares and discuss their properties.
• Discuss why quadrilaterals qualify as parallelograms or rhombuses.
