Ch 3: CSET Math: Plane Euclidean Geometry

Learn about similar shapes and triangles, congruence proofs and the laws of sines and cosines. The video lessons and quizzes in this chapter offer different approaches to help you answer these types of questions on the CSET: Math II test.

CSET Math: Plane Euclidean Geometry - Chapter Summary

Use the lessons in this chapter to help you understand similarity and congruence. You'll also learn how to apply properties of polygons, circles and triangles. Instructors provide examples and practice problems so you can learn to use these tactics in preparation for the exam. Videos cover the methods below, which are similar to questions on the exam:

• Determining properties of congruent and similar shapes
• Proving the angle-angle-side theorem
• Proving the hypotenuse angle and hypotenuse leg theorem
• Applying the law of sines and law of cosines
• Using the Pythagorean Theorem
• Determining the formula for area of polygons and circles
• Applying the angle bisector and perpendicular bisector theorems
• Creating perpendicular bisectors and N-Gons
• Proving geometric theorems with coordinate geometry

CSET Math: Plane Euclidean Geometry Objectives

Aspiring math teachers in California need to take the CSET Math exam to become certified. This exam tests your comprehension of critical math concepts, including those in geometry. Three subtests make up the exam, and you'll find questions on Plane Euclidean Geometry in Subtest II, which has 30 multiple choice questions and four constructed response questions.

To get used to the style of questions on the exam before taking it, use the self-assessment quizzes that accompany each lesson. These quizzes are also helpful for gauging your understanding of the subject matter as you prepare for the exam.
