Trapezoids are an exciting and challenging new shape that your student will start to learn about around first grade. Trapezoids are defined as 4-sided flat shapes with straight sides where at least one pair of those opposite sides are parallel. To learn some basics about trapezoids, scroll to the bottom of the page, or dive into our resources to begin mastering these geometric shapes.

Trapezoids can be a little difficult to work with at first because they are very different from the other 4-sided shapes, such as squares and rectangles. Weâ€™ve put together properties and common equations for trapezoids so that you can help your student become a pro at working with trapezoids.

Properties
• Trapezoids have a pair of parallel sides
• Trapezoids are called isosceles trapezoids when both angles coming from a parallel side are equal, and sides that arenâ€™t parallel have an equal length
