hey everyone! sorry i didnt get this up sooner… i just got home from play practice!

ok so today we worked in groups to figure out the characteristics of 3 different parallelograms: a rectangle, a rhombus, and a square

characteristics of a rectangle include:
> 4 congruent angles, or 4 right angles,
and
> diagonals are congruent in length

characteristics of a rhombus include:
> all sides are congruent,
> diagonals are perpendicular,
and
> diagonals bisect each other

characteristics of a square include( all 5 characteristics of a rectangle and a square):
> 4 congruent angles, or 4 right angles,
> diagonals are congruent in length,
> all sides are congruent,
> diagonals are perpendicular,
and
> diagonals bisect each other

don’t forget to do the homework!!… 2 sided worksheet on the characteristics of parallelograms… and i think tomorrow the scribe should be… Caroline F
