Definition of Kite

A kite is a quadrilateral (4-sided flat shape) which has the following properties:

  • It has two pairs of adjacent sides that are equal in length (we can also find two pairs of adjacent sides that have unequal lengths).
  • Its diagonals are at right angles to each other.
  • One diagonal cuts the other diagonal in half.
  • The angles (labelled \(a\) in the picture) between the unequal adjacent sides are equal.


The aim of this dictionary is to provide definitions to common mathematical terms. Students learn a new math skill every week at school, sometimes just before they start a new skill, if they want to look at what a specific term means, this is where this dictionary will become handy and a go-to guide for a student.
