Explore the differences of constructed verses drawn parallelograms by dragging vertices and investigate properties.
- Generalize a variety of patterns involving side lengths and angle measurements to draw conclusions about the properties of a parallelogram
- Determine additional properties of rectangles, rhombi, and squares
About the Lesson
In this activity, students construct a parallelogram or use a premade construction. As a result, students will manipulate and visualize the parallelogram as they are dragging vertices. They will also draw conclusions about the properties of a parallelogram.
