Symmetries of a Quadrilateral I

This Symmetries of a Quadrilateral I activity & project also includes:

Learners examine the properties of quadrilaterals from the point of view of rigid motion. Different types of quadrilaterals are characterized by their symmetries, so learners explore the symmetries of a described quadrilateral to identify its type.
