About This Chapter

Let us teach you about parallelism. The video lessons and quizzes in this chapter provide different approaches to help you correctly answer these types of questions on the CSET: Math II test.

CSET Math: Parallelism - Chapter Summary

In this chapter, you'll find lessons that teach you about the parallel postulate and its variants and equivalents to prepare for the CSET Math exam. The following topics are addressed in this chapter and can help you answer related exam questions:

  • Using the parallel postulate to confirm that two lines are parallel
  • Proving something is true using the indirect proof method
  • Identifying equivalents for the parallel postulate
  • Using the Alternate Interior Angle Theorem
  • Understanding what results from variants of the parallel postulate

These lessons are taught by skilled instructors who guide you through each process, showing you how to use these methods in preparation for the exam. Lessons use examples to show you how to apply each concept and culminate in a lesson summary that you can use to measure your understanding of the material.

CSET Math: Parallelism Objectives

The CSET Math exam gauges your ability to comprehend standard math principles and teach these concepts to students. It is used in California in preparation for teacher licensure. Three subtests make up the math exam and ask questions about calculus, algebra, probability, geometry, number theory and math history. Parallelism is covered in Subtest II, where you'll find 30 multiple-choice and 4 constructed-response questions on geometry, probability and statistics.

To prepare for the style of questions you'll find on the exam, use the self-assessment quizzes that correspond to each lesson on parallelism. These quizzes can also test your knowledge of the subject matter.
