# Ch 28: Honors Algebra 1: Shapes of Geometry

Brush up on fundamental geometric figures by checking out the video lessons in our Shapes of Geometry chapter. Learn to find the perimeter, area, and more of types of triangles, cones, cylinders, rectangles, rhombuses and circles in these lessons.

## Honors Algebra 1: Shapes of Geometry - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives

Our expert instructors take you through how to identify and measure various geometric figures, both plane and solid. You will review how to find the area and volume of solids such as spheres and cones and the perimeter of quadrilaterals such as rectangles and rhombuses, identify the features that distinguish each and much more. These lessons will show you:

• How to identify plane and solid figures
• What formula to use to calculate the area of a circle
• The everyday applications of similar triangles
• What similar triangles are and what makes them similar
• The distinguishing features of rectangles and rhombuses
