  • Concave and Convex Polygons If a polygon has an indentation (or cave), the polygon is called a concave polygon. Any polygon that does not have an indentation is called a convex polygon. Any two points in the interior of a convex polygon can be connected by a line segment that does not cut or cross a side of the polygon. Concave polygon Convex polygon We will only be discussing CONCAVE polygons
