Math Grade 5 Quiz Two-Dimensional Figures – 5.G.B.3

This standard emphasizes the understanding of the hierarchy and attributes of two-dimensional figures. It helps students to recognize that certain characteristics apply to broad categories of shapes, such as quadrilaterals or triangles, and these traits are also true for the subcategories within them. For example, all shapes that fall under the category of quadrilaterals, including squares, rectangles, rhombuses, and others, have four sides. A further understanding would be that all rectangles have four right angles, and since squares are a type of rectangle, they too must have four right angles.
