- As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

## Who's it for?

This chapter of our CAHSEE Tutoring Solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about geometry and graphing and earn passing scores on the exam. This resource can help students including those who:

- Struggle with understanding how to plot points, graph reflections, work with coordinate graphs or any other geometry and graphing topic
- Have limited time for studying
- Want a cost effective way to supplement their math learning
- Prefer learning about math visually
- Find themselves struggling to prepare for the CAHSEE math exam
- Cope with ADD or ADHD
- Want to get ahead in high school math
- Don't have access to CAHSEE exam prep materials

## Why it works:

**Engaging Tutors:**We make learning about geometry and graphing simple and fun.**Cost Efficient:**For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.**Consistent High Quality:**Unlike a live math tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.**Convenient:**Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about geometry and graphing on the go!**Learn at Your Pace:**You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

## Learning Objectives

- Identify the different parts of a graph.
- Plot points on the coordinate plane.
- Learn how to graph reflections.
- Determine areas and lengths and plot simple figures using coordinate graphs.

### 1. What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?

Being able to read a graph isn't just vital for an algebra class. Graphs and charts are used everywhere! We'll take a crash course on the basic x/y plane used in algebra and the fundamental vocab you need.

### 2. Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane

If you'll be working with a graph, otherwise known as the coordinate plane, it's essential to understand how it works. This includes learning the parts of a graph, identifying points and plotting points.

### 3. How to Graph Reflections Across Axes, the Origin, and Line y=x

A graph can be reflected in three ways - across the axes, the origin and the line y = x. There are specific rules to perform each reflection. This lesson will describe those rules and show you how to perform these reflections.

### 4. Segment Addition Postulate: Definition & Examples

In this lesson, we will review the definition of the segment addition postulate. We will also look at examples to clearly illustrate how this concept works in the real-world.

### 5. The Reflexive Property of Equality: Definition & Examples

In this lesson, we will review the definition of the reflexive property of equality. We will also look at why this property is important. Following the lesson will be a brief quiz to test your knowledge on the reflexive property of equality.

### 6. X Variable: Definition & Concept

In ways, the little x variable is the most popular item in algebra. Learn the many uses of this variable. Also find out why the x variable is not always shown in all algebraic equations and expressions.

### 7. X-Axis: Definition & Overview

In this lesson, you'll learn about the x-axis. How does it relate to a number line? What does it mean if a point falls right on the x-axis? Find out why the x-axis is important in graphing two or more dimensions.

### 8. Y-Coordinates: Definition & Overview

Y-coordinates help identify locations of points on graphs or grids with two dimensions or more. Learn about y-coordinates and how they apply to finding locations in the real world.
