- Two dimensional shapes can have straight lines or curved lines.

- A 2D shape has no thickness, and only two dimensions such as height and width.

- They are also known as 2 dimensional shapes or 2D shapes.

- Many two dimensional shapes are also classified as a plane shape.

- A plane shape is a closed, two-dimensional shape. They vary according to the numbers of sides or vertices.

- A vertex is where two sides meet. If you draw a line from two vertices that are not next to each other, this line would be called a diagonal.

**Ellipse** A closed loop formed by a curved line. The distance from A to C plus B to C will be constant regardless of the location of C on the curved line.

*A triangle* has three sides and three vertices. Here is a list of some common triangles.

Polygons are classified by the number of sides. The number of sides and vertices are equal in polygons.

**Classifying polygons**** by the number of sides**

3 sides =triangle

4 sides =quadrilateral

5 sides= pentagon

6 sides =hexagon

7 sides =septagon

8 sides =octagon

9 sides =nonagon

10 sides =decagon

12 sides =dodecagon

n sides =n-gon

A *rectangle* is a shape with four sides and four vertices

A *square *is a rectangle in which all four sides are equal length and create four ninety degree angles

A *circle* is a round shape that has no sides or corners

A *parallelogram* has four sides, four vertices, and two parallel sides

A *quadrilateral* has four sides, four vertices, and two diagonals. There are many types of quadrilaterals. Check here for a chart of the quadrilateral family.

A *rhombus* has four sides, four vertices, and four equal sides.

## 2 Dimensional Polygon Shapes

What is a **2D shape**? A shape that has only two dimensions such as width and height, but has no thickness is considered a two dimensional shape. Polygons are 2D shapes.
