 
Master the Isosceles Trapezoid from recognition to construction.The Isosceles Trapezoid can sometimes cause quite a bit of confusion. This is because people often refer to it as
simply a Trapezoid, but as you will see from this page, even though it is a trapezoid, it has some extra special features making it
an isosceles shape.
The seven steps detailed bellow take you from basic identification all the way through to taking a detailed look at the theorems involving the isosceles trapezoid. These steps also include 'pit stops' to complete fun geometry projects and coloring sheets. These are nice 'breathers' on the learning curve, but they are excellent ways of reinforcing the new knowledge in ways that your kid can get a real life, hands on approach to understanding the basic geometry concepts included. Okay, so let's get started ... IdentifyHow do we know what we look at is an Isosceles Trapezoid?First and fore most it is a quadrilateral which is a 4 sided plane shape.
The table bellow is intended to be read from left to right.
Chose any shape from the left hand column, and by moving right,
you can see what other shape qualities it posesses.
Once your child is comfortable with how to recognize the shape, offer them some shape worksheets to see how they get on with identifying the shape when compared with others. You may also find our Quadrilateral Family Tree Printable a useful tool to offer your child. Calculate Area and PerimeterHow to calculate the Area and Perimeter of an Isosceles TrapezoidPlease note this is NOT a formula your K6 grade student is required to know.
