Key points to remember:
A polygon is a closed figure with 3 or more sides.
A quadrilateral is a type of polygon, but a quadrilateral has 4 sides.
3 types of triangles; an equilateral, isosceles, and scalene. An equilateral triangle has all 3 sides equal. An isosceles triangle has 2 equal sides, and a scalene triangle has no equal sides.
An acute angle is less than 90 degrees, a right angle is 90 degrees and makes an L. An obtuse angle is between 90 and 180 degrees. 180 degrees makes a straight line.
An acute triangle has angles less than 90 degrees, an obtuse triangle has angles greater than 90 degrees, and a right angle has one 90 degree angle.
A rectangle has 4 right angles, a parallelogram has 2 pairs of equal angles, and a kite has 1 pair of equal angles.
When looking at polygons, a regular polygon has all sides and all angles equal. For example a square and an equilateral triangle. An irregular polygon does not have any sides or angles that are equal.
A net is a figure that shows all the faces of a given solid. It is a 3-D shape.
