Problem Statement

Some quadrilaterals have special names because they have some special properties. For example, a

rectangle is any quadrilateral with four right angles. lternately, a rectangle is a parallelogram with ! right

angle "Can you explain why#$ square is %more special% than a rectangle because it has four right angles

and four equal sides

"so a square is a

special rectangle.$

&ach of the 'eometer(s Sketchpad files below contains a different quadrilateral. )our goal is to use your

knowledge about quadrilateral properties and the Measure menu in 'eometer(s Sketchpad to determine

the MOST specific name of each quadrilateral.

Be careful! ll of the quadrilaterals will look like squares, but only one of them will actually be a square.

*ustify each of your responses by including properties of the quadrilateral that make it unique.

Problem setup

I am trying to determine which of the mystery quadrilaterals is a square. I predict that mystery quadrilateral 1

will be a square. Since all of the quadrilaterals look like squares, using the distinctive properties of specific

quadrilaterals will be vital.

Plans to Solve/Investigate the Problem

Using GS, I will measure and compare all four angles of each quadrilateral. I will also measure the length of

each side and compare. In addition, I will research the specific properties of quadrilaterals in order to

distinguish each one.

Investigation/Exploration of the Problem

I first measured the angles and sides of each quadrilateral and made comparisons. I then investigated the

properties of quadrilaterals and began to classify each. I also needed to investigate how to show that sides are

parallel mathematically.
