Let's think about shapes as collections of points on the coordinate plane. When you're done with this tutorial, you might be saying, "I have had it with these shapes on this plane!" But you'll be happy you went through it.

Parallelogram on the coordinate plane

VIDEO 5:17 minutes
Remember our discussion of the coordinate plane? Sure you do! Let's graph the given coordinates of three of the polygon vertices, and find where the 4th vertex is.

Rectangles on the coordinate plane

Practice solving problems about shapes where the vertices of the shapes are points on the coordinate plane.

Quadrilateral on the coordinate plane

VIDEO 1:32 minutes
In this example we are given the coordinates of the vertices and asked to construct the resulting polygon (specifically a quadrilateral). This is fun!
