This post explains and give practice opportunities related to TEKS 3.6B:
use attributes to recognize rhombuses, parallelograms, trapezoids, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories
More than simply naming four-sided shapes, students learn to sort quadrilaterals based on common attributes like parallel lines or square corners.
Between 2016 and 2021, this supporting standard has been tested 2 times on the STAAR test. Videos explaining each problem can be found below.
