# Shape & Space

This week we are exploring shape and space in Maths.

We learned that a polygon is a 2D shape, made up of straight lines and the shape is closed. Examples of polygons are triangles, squares, rectangles, pentagons, hexagons, octagons and many more.

A rhombus is a square pushed out of shape.It looks like a diamond. All sides are equal in length, opposite sides are parallel and opposite angles are equal.

A parallelogram is a rectangle pushed out of shape. Opposite sides are parallel and of equal length and opposite angles are equal.

**Did you know?**

- A shape with 100 sides is called a Hectagon
- A shape with 1000 sides is called a Chiliagon
- A shape with 1,000,000 is called a Megagon
- And a shape with 10 to the power of 100 is called a Googolgon!!

We played an exciting game based on shapes. You can play it by clicking here.
