Ch 5: CSET Math: Transformational Geometry

About This Chapter

Let us teach you about transformations, dilations and isometries in this chapter on transformational geometry. The video lessons offer numerous approaches that can help you correctly answer these types of questions on the CSET: Math II test.

CSET Math: Transformational Geometry - Chapter Summary

This transformational geometry chapter provides essential knowledge on the properties of isometries and dilations and how to apply them. Instructors will guide you through each concept and show you how to use each one to prepare for the test. The video lessons provide instruction in the following topics that are also covered on the exam:

  • Describing isometries in 2- and 3-dimensional space
  • Understanding rotation, translation and reflection
  • Identifying dilation properties
  • Proving dilation properties, such as similarity transformations

CSET Math: Transformational Geometry Objectives

Passing the CSET Math test is required to get certified as a math teacher in California. This exam has three subtests that test your knowledge of concepts in calculus, geometry, number theory, probability and statistics and algebra, as well as the history of math. Subtest II has 30 multiple-choice questions and four constructed-response questions focused specifically on probability and statistics and geometry. Four areas of geometry are tested here, including a section on transformational geometry.

Watch these video lessons and then use the self-assessment exams that accompany each lesson to test your knowledge of critical concepts in transformational geometry. The quizzes also give you a taste of the format for questions you'll find on Subtest II.
