Rhombus Template (Scaffolded Discovery)
- Tim Brzezinski
The applet below contains a quadrilateral that ALWAYS remains a rhombus. The purpose of this applet is to help you understand many of the geometric properties a rhombus has. The questions you need to answer are displayed below this applet.
Questions: 1) Is a rhombus a parallelogram? Explain why or why not. 2) Are opposite sides of a rhombus congruent? 3) Are opposite angles of a rhombus congruent? 4) Do the diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other? 5) Does a diagonal of a rhombus bisect a pair of opposite angles? 6) Are the diagonals of a rhombus perpendicular? 7) Are the diagonals of a rhombus congruent? 8) Does either diagonal of a rhombus serve as a line of symmetry? If so, how many?
