All vs. Only some

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The purpose of this task is for students to discuss and come to understand what constitute defining attributes for triangles, squares, and rectangles. Students start by looking for attributes shared by all the instances of a particular shape. Some, but not, all of these attributes will be defining attributes. For example, all rectangles have opposite sides parallel, but this isn't a defining attribute--it is something you can show starting only with the defining attributes that a rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles.
