Khan Academy

Supporting grades: 5

Description: Sal discusses a special type of quadrilateral, the kite. Created by Sal Khan. But you could imagine mathematicians have looked at the general shape of these kites, or at least the way they're drawn in cartoons, and say, well, that's an interesting shape in its own right. So let's see if we can come up with a couple of interesting definitions of what a kite could be or a couple of interesting ways to construct a kite. Well, one way that you could think about a kite is it looks like it has two pairs of sides that are congruent to each other.
