Worksheet Overview

This activity is about the properties of quadrilaterals.


You should know the following words:


Bisect: means to cut a line in half


Parallel: means having the same gradient


Right angle: is a 90-degree angle


Diagonal: is a line inside the shape from one corner to an opposite corner


In quadrilaterals, look out for sides of equal length, parallel sides, diagonals, equal angles etc.



Look at these rhombuses.


properties of a rhombus


All four sides are equal.

They have two pairs of parallel sides.

Their diagonals bisect at right angles.

They have two pairs of equal angles.


Let's have a go at classifying some more quadrilaterals in the questions that follow.


Incidentally, did you know that the prefix 'quad' means four? So, a quad bike has four wheels, a quadrangle is a courtyard with four sides and any four-legged animal is a quadruped!
