Problem
An angle is formed by two rays that share an
endpoint. Two dimensional figures have angles
formed by two line segments that share an endpoint.
The shared endpoint is called a vertex. The plural of
vertex is vertices.
Jason drew this polygon
on dot paper.
There are __ angles.
There are __ sides.

endpoint
Math Idea
A polygon is
a closed plane
figure with
straight sides that
are line segments.
Jason’s polygon has 2 right angles. They form
square corners. You can use the corner of a sheet of
paper to tell if an angle is a right angle. Draw boxes
to show the right angles.
Look at Jason’s polygon.
How many pairs of sides
are parallel?
Think: Which sides will
never cross or meet?

Lines that appear to never cross or meet and are always
the same distance apart are parallel lines.
So, Jason’s polygon has __ pair of parallel sides.
