# Ch 29: ACT Math: Coordinate Geometry

How far is the distance between you and ACT success? Get ready for the math section of the ACT with this chapter's fun and engaging lessons on coordinate geometry, including the distance formula. This chapter offers over an hour of video lessons and over 10 quizzes to help prepare you for success on the ACT.

## ACT Math: Coordinate Geometry - Chapter Summary

In preparation for the ACT test, put our short videos and helpful quizzes to use and brush up on coordinate geometry topics, such as:

• Slopes and tangents on graphs
• Graphing circles, absolute value, undefined slope and zero slope
• Transformations
• Point-slope, distance and midpoint formulas
• Standard, intercept and vertex parabolas

Start with the various parts of a graph and basic graphing functions, and then work your way through all 12 lessons. Be sure to complete the corresponding quizzes to measure your understanding of the topics and practice your testing strategies.

### ACT Math Objectives

This is a 60-question, 60-minute portion of the ACT test. The questions are multiple-choice and assess your reasoning skills in finding the solutions to math problems. The math section addresses the following six areas:

• Coordinate Geometry
• Plane Geometry
• Trigonometry
• Pre-Algebra
• Elementary Algebra
• Intermediate Algebra

The coordinate geometry section of the test makes up 15% of the questions. Testing focuses on the following essential areas:

• Graphing
• Relations between graphs and equations (lines, points, circles and polynomials)
• Graphing inequalities
• Slope
• Perpendicular and parallel lines
• Distance
• Midpoints
• Conics

You'll receive four scores for the math test: an overall score for all 60 questions and sub-scores in intermediate algebra/coordinate geometry, plane geometry/trigonometry and pre-algebra/elementary algebra. A set of 18 questions forms the basis for the intermediate algebra/coordinate geometry sub-score.
