Subject: Definition of a kite
My official definition "in the book" for kite is as follows, "A kite is a quadrilateral in which two disjoint pairs of consecutive sides are congruent." This leads students to believe that a rhombus would not be considered a kite. Is this correct? I thought a rhombus was a kite. Do I need to include the word disjoint in my definition. Thanks for the help!!
