  • So, Grandma I was wondering if you could help me study geometry because I was working on it in school and it was confusing.
  • Sure sweetie, I will have enough time to help. But you have to wait until we leave this restaurant.
  • Yes, a polygon is any closed figure that has 3 or more sides. The air vent and the "No!" sign are both examples of polygons.
  • So Melody can you tell me what a polygon is, and where one is in this bus?
  • Good job!
  • No!
  • A quadrilateral is a 4 sided polygon. Also an example would be the door.
  • Excellent!
  • Now this one will be tricky, what is a quadrilateral and where is one?
  • What is a triangle?
  • A 3 sided polygon that is a closed figure. They can further be classified as equilateral, isosceles, or scalene. Look at the examples I drew below.
  • The next day Melody had to match the shapes with it's category; quadrilateral, triangle,and polygon.
