Learn how different shapes have different numbers of corners, different side lengths, and so on. Use these properties to help you recognize shapes.

Not all things with four sides and 90 degree angles are squares or rectangles! Sometimes the angles in these 4-sided shapes are less than (or greater than) 90 degrees, causing them to have a slightly odd shape. These are called quadrilaterals and come in a few different varieties. In this tutorial, you'll learn about them. Common Core Standards: 5.G.B.3, 5.G.B.4

Triangles can be classified in different ways. In this tutorial, we'll learn about scalene, isosceles, equilateral, acute, right, and obtuse triangles.

Do the angles in a triangle always add up to the same thing? Would I ask it if they didn't? What do we know about the angles of a triangle if two of the sides are congruent (an isosceles triangle) or all three are congruent (an equilateral)? This tutorial is the place to find out.
