About This Chapter
SAT Mathematics: Lines and Angles - Chapter Summary
Learn how to identify the various types of angles, tell whether two lines are perpendicular, and more using our online video lessons. Lessons in this chapter include:
- Parallel, perpendicular and transverse Lines
- Types of angles: vertical, corresponding, alternate interior and others
- Angles and triangles: practice problems
- The Pythagorean theorem: practice and application
Our online video instructors show you step-by-step how to apply your knowledge of lines, angles, and triangles to Euclidean geometry questions you find on the SAT mathematics exam. To help you prepare, video lessons include helpful features such as self-assessment quizzes and a written transcript.
SAT Mathematics Objectives
The SAT Mathematics Level 1 test is meant to be taken by students who've completed at least three years of college-prep mathematics, including two years of algebra and one of geometry. Students interested in pursuing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), economics, and related degree programs in college might use the math exam to help their applications stand out.
You'll answer a total of 50 multiple-choice questions. Geometry and measurement account for 38%-42% of the exam, with plane Euclidean geometry accounting for 18%-22% of the total. The other geometry and measurement concepts you'll need to know for the test include coordinate geometry, 3-dimensional geometry, and trigonometry.
1. 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.
2. Types of Angles: Vertical, Corresponding, Alternate Interior & Others
In addition to basic right, acute, or obtuse angles, there are many other types of angles or angle relationships. In this lesson, we will learn to identify these angle relationships and discuss their measurements.
3. Angles and Triangles: Practice Problems
Want more practice solving with angle pairs? How about more review for solving angles in triangles? Look no further. Get more practice here, and test your ability with a quiz.
