These different meanings result in different classifications at the analytic level. According to T(E), a parallelogram is not a trapezoid; according to T(I), a parallelogram is a trapezoid. Both definitions are legitimate. However, Usiskin et al. conclude, ‘The preponderance of advantages to the inclusive definition of trapezoid has caused all the articles we could find on the subject, and most college-bound geometry books, to favor the inclusive definition.’” (Geometry Progression, p. 3). Thus, the inclusive definition is used below and throughout the curriculum.
