Ch 45: AEPA Middle Grades Math: Quadrilaterals

About This Chapter

Prepare for the your Arizona teacher certification test by completing this chapter's lessons on the properties of quadrilaterals. Arizona has replaced the AEPA Middle Grades Math exam with the National Evaluation Series (NES) Middle Grades Mathematics test.

AEPA Middle Grades Mathematics: Quadrilaterals - Chapter Summary

This chapter's lessons will help you get ready for the AEPA Middle Grades Mathematics test by reviewing various types of quadrilaterals and their properties. When you've finished watching these videos, you should be able to:

  • Explain the properties of quadrilateral
  • Give examples of quadrilaterals
  • Define and offer proof theorems for parallelograms
  • State the properties of a rhombus, kite, rectangle, square and trapezoid

Our instructors go over each shape thoroughly, guiding you through explanations and giving examples of each property discussed. After watching the videos, you can scan the text lessons to revisit key vocabulary words or use the multiple-choice quizzes to test your comprehension.

Objectives of the AEPA Middle Grades Math: Quadrilaterals Chapter

Prospective middle grades math teachers in Arizona may take the AEPA Middle Grades Math test, which covers a range of topics including algebra, operations with numbers and statistics. Questions on quadrilaterals are part of section on geometry and measurement, which makes up 25% of the test's total 150 questions. The test is computer based, and all questions are multiple-choice, with four possible options for answers.
