• How to use
properties of
parallelograms to
solve real life
problems.
6.3 Properties of
Parallelograms
Power Standard #8
Understand the properties, characteristics, and
notation of geometric figures/solids to determine
how they relate to one another. (1.3.2)
[1.2, 6.1-6.3, 6.5, 6.6]
Parallelogram
• A parallelogram is a quadrilateral whose
opposite sides are parallel.
Lesson Investigation
Part A - Instructions
• In pairs, use a straightedge to draw two parallel
segments on a piece of patty paper. Then draw two
other parallel segments to form a parallelogram.
• Place a second piece of patty paper over the first and
copy the parallelogram onto the second.
• By moving the copies around, what conjectures can you
make about the properties of parallelograms.
• You have ten minutes!!!
Part A – Guiding Questions
• How do the lengths of the opposite sides compare?
• How do the sizes of the opposite angles compare?
• How do the sizes of consecutive angles compare?

Lesson Investigation
Part B – Instructions
• Draw or fold the two diagonals of the parallelogram.
• Place a dot at their intersection.
• You have five minutes!!!
Part B - Guiding Questions
• How do the segments of each diagonal compare?
• What can be said about the intersection of the
diagonals?
• How many congruent triangles are formed within the
parallelogram?

Properties of Parallelograms
• THM 6.3: The opposite sides of a
parallelogram are congruent.
• THM 6.4: The opposite angles of a
parallelogram are congruent.
Properties of Parallelograms
• THM 6.5: The consecutive interior
angles of a parallelogram are

Using Parallelograms to solve
Real life problems
• The San Francisco
Bay Bridge, like
many bridges, uses
parallelograms in its
structural design.
• Engineers use
properties of
parallelograms to
build and repair
bridges.
