More hexagons!

Earlier in the week we all used Geogebra to create a lot of different hexagons. Here are a few of them:

We discussed how to describe their features. 
Some of the features we mentioned are:
  • pairs of edges which are parallel
  • edges which are the same length
and at the corners:
  • right angles
  • acute ("sharp") angles
  • obtuse ("blunt") angles
  • symmetry
Then we made some more hexagons out of geostrips:

Here they are:

But wait...
This one isn't a hexagon!
And is this a hexagon??!
 This one was interesting. We needed to pull at six corners:


  1. I loved it, because we could make different shapes with an irregular Hexagon!

  2. I think it was very fun to do this
