About This Course
Before you can graduate from high school in the state of New York, you'll need to earn a Regents Diploma. This entails passing a series of standardized tests in English, global history, and U.S. history, as well as one exam each in math and science. The geometry test is one of three options for the math exam.
This study guide includes video lessons and quizzes that can help you prepare for the test. Instructors cover geometric relationships, informal and formal proofs, transformational geometry, coordinate geometry, and more over the course of several chapters. Topics of study include:
- Foundations of geometry
- Geometric figures
- Triangles and congruency
- Parallel lines and polygons
- Circular arcs, circles and conic sections
- Geometric solids
- Analytical geometry
The Geometry Regents test is a 4-part exam that includes 28 multiple-choice questions. There are also ten constructed-response questions requiring you to solve a problem, draw or graph your answers, and show your work.
You'll be provided with a graphing calculator, compass, and ruler during the exam. The test booklet also includes a reference sheet that outlines formulas for calculating volume, surface area, and lateral area for a series of shapes.
Geometry Regents Exam Preparation
Our study guide for the Regents Geometry Exam includes video lessons you can use to review angles, lines, and other components of geometric constructions. Instructors also discuss relevant theorems and formulas in a way that makes the material easy to understand. Once you've viewed these brief videos, you can take each lesson's corresponding quiz to find out whether or not you've got a firm grasp of the material.
Geometry Regents Exam Scoring
Correct answers to multiple-choice questions on part I of the exam are awarded two points each. The six constructed-response questions appearing in part II can also receive up to two points apiece. Responses to the three questions in part III can receive up to four points, and the one constructed response question comprising part IV is worth up to six points. The answers you provide in parts II-IV will receive full credit if they're free from conceptual or computational errors and clearly demonstrate the steps you took to arrive at the solution.
These raw scores are converted into a scaled score ranging from 0-100, and you must earn at least a 65 to pass. A score of 90 or above on this test and all other Regents Exams required for graduation will earn you an honors designation on your diploma.
