Classifying Quadrilaterals

A set of activity sheets and presentation/lesson for KS3 students to cover the properties of quadrilaterals. Explains line / rotational symmetry, and how/why we mark equal angles, equal and parallel sides. The plenary works as a 'mystery' and checks learning of students by getting them to ask questions that distinguish two shapes from each other.

    :( Some really basic mistakes which would be very confusing for the children!
    "A rhombus is a special parallelogram where all of the sides and angles are the same length"

    No, a rhombus does not have four equal angles, only two pairs of equal angles, (except the special case; square) and angles are not described by 'length'!
