When you think of shapes and elementary school, does your mind go to that red plastic box with different-shaped openings -- where the child has to find the right shape and match it to the right slot? Well, those kids are in elementary school now and are required to know much more, like quadrilaterals, octagons, and parallelograms to name a few. If just remembering these shapes stretch your brain, then good! This quiz is for you. It's to remind you of what you learned when you were young, and is designed to keep your brain in tip-top shape.
Of course, these shapes always had importance in geometry. The shape would tell you information on the length of the sides or whether it was a 90-degree angle or another angle. And of course, it allowed you to deconstruct a shape (into a square and triangle, for example) to help calculate areas that had unknown dimensions. Do you recall the difference between an Equilateral Triangle and a Right Triangle? Here's your opportunity to test your skill and remember it all. If you find today's youth are smarter than you, don't worry, it's just the shape of things to come. Go ahead, and take the quiz now.
