Updated on 02/10/2015

Activity Overview

Students determine the sum of the interior angles of a quadrilateral.

Key Steps

  • Image

    Students will construct a quadrilateral and measure the interior angles.

  • Image

    Students will find the sum of the interior angles of their quadrilateral. Then, they will move vertices to change the angle measures and find the sum again. Students should find that the sum of the interior angles of a quadrilateral is always 360 degrees.
