Ch 29: CEOE Advanced Math: Symmetry, Similarity & Congruence

About This Chapter

In order to gain both knowledge and confidence before taking the CEOE Advanced Math exam, you can review this chapter. It was put together so that you could review symmetry, similarity and congruence.

CEOE Advanced Math: Symmetry, Similarity & Congruence - Chapter Summary

Use our study aids to explore different geometry topics and prepare for the CEOE Advanced Math exam. Some of these include:

  • Symmetry, similarity and congruence in geometric shapes
  • Transverse, parallel and perpendicular lines
  • Constructing perpendicular lines
  • Identifying parallel and perpendicular lines in geometric shapes

Our lively video lessons not only are effective at helping you review material, they can show you new things about geometric shapes. You can use the interactive timeline to jump to specific portions of the videos you want to rewatch, and ask questions of our expert instructors if you need help.

CEOE Advanced Math: Symmetry, Similarity & Congruence Chapter Objectives

The CEOE Advanced Math exam is a requirement for teacher certification in Oklahoma. The test is going to gauge your understanding of advanced math principles, and you are going to have to answer multiple-choice questions.

The material that is included in this chapter is part of the subarea 3 portion, which makes up 18% of the exam. The questions on this portion will have you analyze different geometric shapes. To make sure you are ready for these types of questions, take our lesson quizzes.

What is a Line of Symmetry in Geometric Shapes?

1. What is a Line of Symmetry in Geometric Shapes?

After viewing this lesson, you should be able to identify shapes that have a line of symmetry in them and know how to find where this line is. A short quiz to test your knowledge will follow the lesson.

Congruence in Geometric Shapes

2. Congruence in Geometric Shapes

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can determine whether two shapes are congruent or not. You will learn what the one criterion is when determining congruency between two shapes.

Similarity in Geometric Shapes

3. Similarity in Geometric Shapes

View this lesson to learn how you can determine whether shapes are similar. Find out how to use the one rule that tells you when your two shapes are geometrically similar.

Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

4. Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

What are the different types of lines? Where are they visible in the real world and how can you recognize them? Find out here and test your knowledge with a quiz.

Identifying Parallel Lines in Geometric Shapes

5. Identifying Parallel Lines in Geometric Shapes

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can spot parallel lines in a rectangle, in a square, and in a parallelogram. You will learn how many pairs of parallel lines each of these shapes has.

Constructing Perpendicular Lines in Geometry

6. Constructing Perpendicular Lines in Geometry

In this video lesson, you will see how to use geometric construction to draw perpendicular lines. Learn why geometric construction is useful. Also find out the only two tools in addition to your pencil that you need to do this.

Identifying Perpendicular Lines in Geometric Shapes

7. Identifying Perpendicular Lines in Geometric Shapes

Do you know what a perpendicular line is? Do you know how to spot one in a geometric shape? This lesson will tell you how to spot perpendicular lines in squares, rectangles, triangles, and trapezoids.
