following.
A. A set of parallel lines in red
B. Intersecting lines in blue
C. Perpendicular lines in green
D. An acute angle in purple
E. An obtuse angle in yellow
F. A line of symmetry in black
Part III
Choose 2 different pattern blocks.
1. Identify and describe each using geometric terms.
2. Explain or make a chart in which you tell at least 3 likenesses and
3 differences in the geometric characteristics of these two polygons.
(Use geometric terms.)
