This is the video of our lesson eight on my website names of basic shapes this was not just a very basic introduction to two dimensional shapes to dimensional meaning their flat. Here you can see some common shapes and their names make sure that you feel fully comfortable with each of these shapes so if you see the word hexagon you should automatically know that it has six sides because on an exam they probably won’t tell you that. Some of these shapes are considered to be polygons.
The prefix poly means many and a polygon is just a shape with multiple sides. For a shape to be considered a polygon it has to be fully closed in so that there can’t be any gaps at all and it cannot have any curves so for example the circle and the oval are not polygons but all the other shapes are. Now if a polygon has all that sides equal in length equal in measure we consider to be a regular polygon so that’s easy to see here in this octagon which is like a stop sign you can see all the sides are equal so we will call that a regular polygon.
If you go to my website you can see the names of shapes of others sides which are less common for example seven sides or eleven sides or thirteen sides or even twenty sides but you don’t actually have to memorize the names of those shapes. You can just take a look at that if you’re curious these are the shapes that you should memorize and know by heart how many sides they each have later you’ll learn a lot more about these shapes and how they work. You’ll learn how to find the area of these shapes and the perimeter the perimeters and many other things and more also work with more complicated shapes like the rhombus the parallelogram and the trapezoid. For now just make sure you have a sense of how these shapes work and what they look like.
