I thought "za" meant either "behind" or "for." What is the grammatical function of it in this sentence? I've never seen it used like this.

An idiomatic one, it's just a set construction. "Co to za X..." = "What (kind of) X..."

I don't really understand the meaning of the sentence. It's it some wacky teaching of geometry?

Someone doesn't recognize (can't name) the shape of the triangle/square/rectangle/circle?
