5.3 Kites and Trapezoids powerpoint

In this lesson you will

● Investigate the properties of **kites**

● Investigate properties of **trapezoids **and **isosceles trapezoids**

A **kite **is a quadrilateral with two distinct pairs of congruent consecutive sides.

The angles between congruent sides are called** vertex angles. **We’ll refer to the other two angles as **nonvertex angles.**

A kite has one line of reflectional symmetry, just like an isosceles triangle.

**A trapezoid **is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides.

The parallel sides are called **bases.**

A pair of angles that share a base as a common side are called **base angles. **
