Understanding Quadrilaterals - the basics for you exam!


For your GCSE Maths examination you will need to know the 6 different types of quadrilaterals and their associated properties. Let’s take a look at all 6 types:


  1. The square - it has sides of equal length, it’s opposite sides are parallel and all angles in a square are 90 degrees

  2. The rectangle - has opposite sides of equal length and all angles are 90 degrees

  3. The rhombus - opposite sides are parallel, all sides are of equal length

  4. The trapezium - has one set of opposite sides that are parallel

  5. The parallelogram - diagonally opposite angles are equal, the diagonals bisect each other

  6. The kite - two pairs of sides of equal length, the diagonals cross at 90 degrees

These are just some of the properties of each of these shapes.
