# Ch 12: ELM Test - Geometry: Perimeter, Area & Volume

Prepare for the geometry section of the ELM exam by exploring our free lessons on perimeter, area and volume. If you plan to attend a California State University school, you'll need to take the ELM to prove your competency in math.

## ELM Geometry: Perimeter, Area & Volume - Chapter Summary

Prepare for the ELM math by studying the following areas of geometry: perimeter, area & volume.

• Perimeter of triangles and rectangles
• Perimeter of quadrilaterals and irregular shapes
• Areas of triangles and rectangles
• Areas of quadrilaterals and irregular shapes
• Circles: area and circumference
• Volume of prisms and pyramids
• Volume of cylinders, cones and spheres

Each lesson breaks down the formulas and calculations using easy-to-follow examples and include opportunities to practice what you've learned. These concepts address both 2D and 3D geometric shapes. Watch our free online videos have your students test their knowledge with our interactive quizzes.

## ELM Objectives

The ELM is a math proficiency exam required for all incoming students to schools in the California State University system. You can learn more about the topics on the ELM.

The lessons in this chapter address the Geometry portion of the ELM, which is about 30% of the entire exam. The Geometry topic assesses skills in a variety of areas of 2D and 3D Geometry. The lessons in this chapter most closely match the objective 'Find the perimeter, area or volume of geometric figures.'

Other Geometry-focused objectives are also addressed in this course, including:

• Defining and Understanding Properties of Objects
• Graphing Basics
• Graphing Functions
• Using the Pythagorean Theorem
