T.I.P.S.

Students must be able to use attributes of twodimensional shapes or polygons to recognize a variety of quadrilaterals such as a rhombus, parallelogram, trapezoid, rectangle, and square and draw figures that do not belong.
Example

Read the questions below and use your paper if necessary.a) In the set below, which figure(s) are trapezoids?
b) Draw a picture of a quadrilateral that is not a rhombus, parallelogram, trapezoid, rectangle, or square.

3.6 Geometry and measurement. The student applies mathematical process standards to analyze attributes of twodimensional geometric figures to develop generalizations about their properties. The student is expected to:
(B) use attributes to recognize rhombuses, parallelograms, trapezoids, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories
