About This Chapter
TEAS Test: Measurement - Chapter Summary
In this chapter, we'll cover measurements and conversions so that you can answer related questions during the TEAS test. Thanks to our short video lessons, you'll learn all about:
- Converting between different units of measurement
- Metric units and how to convert between them
- Gathering information from prefixes in the metric system
- Performing basic arithmetic operations
- Utilizing scale drawings
Professional instructors will guide you through these concepts while you prepare for the TEAS test. After the completion of this chapter, you'll be equipped with the knowledge of measurements and conversions that you need to succeed on your exam. With a combination of short video lessons equipped with convenient video tags for easy navigation and self-assessment quizzes at the end of each lesson, you'll be well on your way to a great score on the TEAS.
1. Common Unit Conversions
Watch this video lesson, and you will become a pro at converting between inches and feet, between feet and yards, and between quarts and gallons. Learn the special numbers involved in each conversion.
2. The Metric System: Units and Conversion
Just like you and your friend communicate using the same language, scientists all over the world need to use the same language when reporting the measurements they make. This language is called the metric system. In this lesson we will cover the metric units for length, mass, volume, density and temperature, and also discuss how to convert among them.
3. How to Convert Units in the Metric System
If you can make dinner, you can convert units in the metric system. It's that easy! In this lesson, you'll learn about the three key things you'll need to perform conversions.
4. Standard Units of Measurement for Length, Weight, Time & Capacity
Watch this video lesson to learn how to recognize the various units of measurement for length, weight, time and volume. Learn to recognize both U.S. units and metric units.
5. How to Perform Basic Operations with Measurements
In this video lesson, you will learn how measurements are very much like variables when it comes to adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing them. You will also see examples of how they are done.
6. Basic Geometry: Rules & Formulas
In this lesson, we'll go over some of the basic formulas and rules in geometry, the study of shapes and space. You'll learn formulas to find the perimeter, area, volume, and surface area of two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes.
7. Basic Geometry: Concepts & Terms
Geometry is the study of shapes and the space that they inhabitant. One-dimensional geometry is concerned with distance. Two-dimensional geometry is concerned with area. Three-dimensional geometry is concerned with volume.
8. Estimating the Area of Irregular Shapes
Many shapes have formulas that allow you to find the area quickly. Some shapes are irregular and do not fall neatly into these formulas. This lesson will cover how to find the area of different, irregular shapes.
9. The Cartesian Coordinate System: Plotting Points & Graphing Lines
Watch this video lesson to see how useful the Cartesian coordinate system is. Learn how points are labeled and how you can plot points and graph lines using the system.
10. 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.
11. Types of Angles: Right, Straight, Acute & Obtuse
Angles are everywhere. Learn about the different types of angles we use in mathematics, including right angles, acute angles, obtuse angles, and straight angles. See if you can tell the difference with a quiz.
12. Complementary, Supplementary, Vertical & Adjacent Angles
After watching this video lesson, you will know how to locate complementary, supplementary, vertical, and adjacent angles. You will understand how easy it is to visually see them. You will also know what to look for.
