Can a square be a rhombus? 2003-03-04
From Beth:
Can a square be a rhombus? Some sources say yes, some say no. Some sources define a rhombus as a quadrilateral and parallelogram with equal sides, but without right angles. Some sources say a square is a special case of a rhombus. Clarity, please!

Congruence and symmetry 2001-02-21
From Chris:
My name is Chris and I am a second-grade teacher. I would like to know what the difference is between congruent and symmetry, and how do I explain this to my class? I know that congruent means the same, and symmetry is two identical sides. Is there a difference between the two? I know there must be, but I don't know what or how to explain these two terms.
