In your KS3 Maths journey, you've encountered lots of cool shapes - circles, triangles, pentagons, and more. But guess what? This quiz is all about quadrilaterals!

Quadrilaterals are 2D shapes with four sides and four angles. You might think of squares and oblongs, but there are different types of quadrilaterals with unique properties.

Discover the Joy of Learning with QuizzesThe name "quadrilaterals" comes from Latin, where QUAD means 4, and LATERAL means sides. What's special about them? The interior angles of any quadrilateral always add up to 360^{o}

There are more rules, like side lengths or parallel sides, that help classify quadrilaterals into types like rhomboids or trapeziums. Take the quiz that follows to test how well you know your quadrilaterals!

1.

How many sides of a trapezium MUST be parallel?

2

3

4

None

The definition of a trapezium is a quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides

2.

A scalene quadrilateral has no sides which are .......

curved

parallel

equal

smooth

Just as a scalene triangle has sides of unequal length, the same is true of a scalene quadrilateral

3.

Which of these shapes is NOT a quadrilateral?

Circle

Rectangle

Rhombus

Square

A circle does not have four sides

4.

What is a true statement about a kite?

All four sides are equal in length

Has one pair of parallel sides

Has two pairs of adjacent sides equal in length

It has no lines of symmetry

A kite is a quadrilateral whose four sides can be grouped into two pairs. Each pair is adjacent and of equal-length

5.

What makes an isosceles trapezium different to an 'ordinary' trapezium?

A line of symmetry

No rotational symmetry

Non-parallel lines of equal length

One pair of parallel lines

Just as an isosceles triangle has two sides of equal length, so too with an isosceles trapezium which makes it symmetrical

6.

The interior angles of a quadrilateral add up to how many degrees?

90

180

360

720

By adding a diagonal you can split a quadrilateral into 2 triangles. The sum of the angles in a triangle is 180^{o}, so the sum of two triangles will be 360^{o}

7.

How does a rhombus differ from a parallelogram?

All sides are equal in length

Opposite angles are equal

Opposite sides are parallel

Rotational order of symmetry is two

A rhombus is like a 'squashed' square or a diamond

8.

How many angles of a square MUST be 90 degrees?

2

3

4

None

All four sides MUST be equal too

9.

Here are four shapes. Which one is NOT a quadrilateral?

Kite

Parallelogram

Trapezium

Triangle

A triangle does not have four sides

10.

Which of the following does a parallelogram NOT have?

A line of symmetry

Four angles

Opposite angles are equal

Opposite sides which are equal in length

If it did have a line of symmetry then it would be either a rhombus or a rectangle
