Welcome to the Shapes Page

Here Teachers,Parents and Students can find a collection of games and activities in order to help student to improve understanding in math skills such as the following:

  • Types of plane Shapes
  • Describe, analyze, create, and compare properties of two-dimensional figures 
  • Examine the presence or absence of angles of a specified size to classify two-dimensional shapes
  •  Examine the presence or absence of parallel and perpendicular lines 
  • Quadrilaterals
  • Polygons
  • Circles
  • Parallerograms
  • 3d Shapes

Parallelogram

Opposite sides are parallel

Opposite sides are equal in length

Opposite angles are equal (angles a,g are the same, and angles d,B are the same)

Angles a,d and g,B add up to 180°, so they are supplementary angles.

Rectangle

A rectangle is a four-sided shape where every angle is a right angle (90°).

A Rectangle is a Parallelogram (Opposite sides are parallel and of equal length)

Square

A Square is a shape with 4 equal sides and every angle is a right angle (90°)

A Square is a Parallelogram (Opposite sides are parallel and of equal length)

Trapezoid

A trapezoid has a pair of parallel sides

A trapezoid is an Isosceles trapezoid when both angles coming from a parallel side are equal, and the sides that aren't parallel are equal in length.

Circle

All points are the same distance from the center

Press the Button New Circle write the radious and drag the pencil tip to draw the circle

Pentagon

A pentagon is a 5-sided Polygon

When all angles are equal and all sides are equal it is regular, otherwise it is irregular

Hexagon

A Hexagon is a 6-sided Polygon

When all angles are equal and all sides are equal it is regular, otherwise it is irregular

Shapes test 1

Into answer box round Decimals to the Nearest Whole Number

Try it yourself (drag the points of Shapes to change the angles and practise)

Walking up Hills

This is a game which reinforces skills in finding angles perimeter and Area of Shapes. Find the direction angle and the distance to the next point in order to complete the path.
