# Ch 32: SAT Math: Geometry and Measurement

Make sure you're ready for geometry questions on the SAT with 2 hours of engaging video lessons covering geometry concepts on the SAT. Test your skills with lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to make sure you're ready for this section of the SAT.

## SAT Math: Geometry and Measurement - Chapter Summary

This portion of the math SAT covers a wide variety of concepts. Watch our short video lessons to review the following topics:

• Types of angles and lines
• Perimeter and area of triangles and rectangles
• Area and circumference of circles
• Properties of shapes
• Similar triangles
• Pythagorean Theorem
• Volumes of basic shapes
• Properties of 3-D objects
• Parts and applications of graphs
• Transformations
• Visualizing geometry problems

In this chapter, you'll work with the graphing formulas for distance and midpoint, in addition to the point-slope formula for finding the equation of a line. You'll also explore the graphing topics of undefined slope, zero slope, absolute value, dilation, reflections, center and radius. After working your way through each lesson, take the quick quiz to make sure that you're staying on target.

### SAT Math Objectives

Your SAT math section will have 58 questions. Your test booklet will contain the formulas needed to complete the questions. The geometry and measurement portion composes 25%-30% of the test questions. You'll be asked to demonstrate your understanding of the following concepts:

• Geometric visualization
• Circles: area and circumference
• Polygons: area and perimeter
• Volume: boxes, cubes and cylinders
• Slope
• Transformations
• Similarity
• Coordinate geometry
• Properties of parallel and perpendicular lines
• Pythagorean Theorem
• Special properties of equilateral, isosceles and right triangles

Our lessons assist your review of these tested objectives and provide practice problems for working with angles and triangles, in addition to applying the Pythagorean Theorem. You'll want to use a calculator on some of the problems, so make sure that you've checked the list of approved models on the SAT student site. Unanswered questions and incorrect choices don't count against you.
