Simple Closed Curves
In simple closed curves the shapes are closed by linesegments or by a curved line.
Triangle, quadrilateral, circle, etc., are examples of closed curves.
A curve which starts and ends at the same point without
crossing itself is called a simple closed curve. A circle is a simple closed
curve.
Some more examples of simple closed curves are given below.
The shape which is not closed by linesegments or a curve is called an open curve.
The curves which do not have same starting and end points
are called open curves.
Some examples of open curves are given below.
A closed curve which does not cross itself is called a simple closed curve.
The curve which crosses itself is not a simple closed curve.
Here is a collection of closed curves. Except curve (d) and (e), the remaining shapes are simple closed curves.
There are three types of simple closed curves.
(i) Some simple closed curves are made of linesegments only. These curves are known as polygons. Triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon etc., are polygons.
(ii) Some simple closed curves are made by curved lines only. A circle is an example of such a closed curve.
(iii) Some simple closed curves are made of both linesegments and curved lines.

Worksheet on polygons are important to practice so that students can solve the polygon related questions easily in the 4th grade. A simple closed figure made up of line segments is called a polygon. A polygon having four sides are called quadrilaterals. A square is a

Worksheet on symmetrical shapes we will solve different types of questions. Fourth grade students can practice this geometry worksheet on symmetrical shapes to get the basic ideas on symmetrical

Symmetrical shapes are discussed here in this topic. Any object or shape which can be cut in two equal halves in such a way that both the parts are exactly the same is called symmetrical. The line which divides the shape is called the symmetry. So, if we place a mirror

In circle math the terms related to the circle are discussed here. A circle is such a closed curve whose every point is equidistant from a fixed point called its centre. The symbol of circle is O. We have learned to draw a circle, by tracing the outlines of objects like a

A simple closed curve or a polygon formed by three linesegments (sides) is called a triangle. The above shown shapes are triangles. The symbol of a triangle is ∆. A triangle is a polygon with three sides. In the given figure ABC is a triangle. AB, BC and CA are its sides.

Worksheet on closed curves and open curves questions are here for the students to practice simple shapes. 1. Draw an alphabet which forms a closed figure. 2. Draw a number which forms a closed figure which is not simple. 3. Draw a number which forms a simple closed figure

Representation of a fraction is discussed here. In a simple fraction, there is a horizontal line. Above this line we write a number which is called the numerator. Below this line we write another number which is called the denominator.

We have learnt about lines, line segments, rays open and closed curves. We also know how to draw two parallel lines using setsquares. Now, answer the following questions to have a quick review of what we have learnt earlier.
