# Ch 10: ISTEP+ Grade 8 Math: Geometric Figures

Review the formulas in this chapter to improve your understanding of how to find the different properties of three-dimensional figures as you prepare for the ISTEP+ Grade 8 - Mathematics test.

## ISTEP+ Grade 8 Math: Geometric Figures - Chapter Summary

With the lessons of this chapter, you will review how to find the properties of cubes, rectangular prisms, cylinders, pyramids, cones and spheres. Each lesson is taught by a professional instructor who will explain the mathematical process of finding these properties by demonstrating example problems. Following these lessons, you should have a better understanding of:

• The relationships between planes and polyhedrons
• Different types of platonic solids
• Calculations for the surface area of cubes and rectangular prisms
• Finding the surface area of cylinders and pyramids
• Calculations for the volume of prisms and pyramids
• Finding the volume of cylinders, cones and spheres
• Constructing and measuring right rectangular prisms using nets

Read the lesson transcripts to further reinforce your understanding of these lessons. These written overviews will also help you study the key terms in the chapter. After each lesson, you can also test your understanding of the material by taking the lesson quizzes. Then use the video tags from the quiz results to return to and review the parts of the lessons that explained the topics you missed.

### ISTEP+ Grade 8 Math: Geometric Figures Objectives

The Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress Plus (ISTEP+) Grade 8 Mathematics test is used to determine if 8th grade students have learned what they need to learn about mathematics during their 8th grade school year. Completing it involves taking two test: an applied-skills assessment and a multiple-choice assessment. To do well on these tests, you will need to accurately responded to a series of essay, open-ended and multiple-choice questions. Out these questions, you can expect 20-30% to measure your understanding of geometry and measurements, including how to find the properties of three dimensional figures.
