Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

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.

Properties of Shapes: Rectangles, Squares and Rhombuses

2. Properties of Shapes: Rectangles, Squares and Rhombuses

What's the difference between a square and a rectangle? What about a rhombus and a square? In this lesson, we'll look at the properties of these shapes.

Area of Triangles and Rectangles

3. Area of Triangles and Rectangles

How do you find out the area of rectangles and triangles? Learn how in this lesson! We'll look at the formulas, then practice solving problems for each shape.

Finding the Properties of Three-Dimensional Objects on the SAT

4. Finding the Properties of Three-Dimensional Objects on the SAT

Struggling with 3-D geometry problems on the SAT, like the problems about cubes and spheres? In this lesson, you'll learn how to crack them by breaking them down into more familiar 2-D shapes and solving from there.

How to Calculate the Volumes of Basic Shapes

5. How to Calculate the Volumes of Basic Shapes

Squares pegs = square holes. Triangular pegs = triangular holes. But where does a sphere go? In this lesson, review volumes of common shapes while contrasting a sphere and a cylinder - after all, they both go into the circular hole... right?

Properties of Shapes: Circles

6. Properties of Shapes: Circles

Circles are fundamental to everything we do. But, did you know they're much more than just round shapes? In this lesson, we'll look at the various parts of circles and how they all relate.

What is Diameter? - Definition & Formula

7. What is Diameter? - Definition & Formula

In this lesson, you can find out how important the diameter is to a circle. Also, you can learn about the formulas that were figured out by the mathematicians of old relating to the diameter and how to use them.

Circles: Area and Circumference

8. Circles: Area and Circumference

Understanding how to calculate the area and circumference of circles plays a vital role in some of our everyday functions. They serve as the foundation for operating with three-dimensional figures. Learn more about the area and circumference of circles in this lesson.

Graphing Circles: Identifying the Formula, Center and Radius

9. Graphing Circles: Identifying the Formula, Center and Radius

Discover how to graph circles by finding key information like the center and radius. Identify circles by simply looking at the formula, and vice versa.

Converting Between Radians and Degrees

10. Converting Between Radians and Degrees

Angles can be measured in degrees or radians. This lesson will explore the difference and provide you with a simple calculation that can be used to convert degrees into radians and radians into degrees.

How to Find the Arc Length of a Function

11. How to Find the Arc Length of a Function

You don't always walk in a straight line. Sometimes, you want to know the distance between two points when the path is curved. In this lesson, you'll learn about finding the length of a curve.

Measurements of Lengths Involving Tangents, Chords and Secants

12. Measurements of Lengths Involving Tangents, Chords and Secants

The lengths of chords, tangents and secants take on unique relationships when they're drawn on circles. In this lesson, we'll define those relationships and see them in action.

Finding the Area of a Sector: Formula & Practice Problems

13. Finding the Area of a Sector: Formula & Practice Problems

In this lesson, you'll review your knowledge of circle vocabulary and then discover how to calculate the area of a sector of a circle. The lesson covers finding the area of the sector using degrees and radians.

How to Find the Measure of an Inscribed Angle

14. How to Find the Measure of an Inscribed Angle

Finding the measure of an inscribed angle requires knowing a little information. In this lesson, we'll find the measure of an inscribed angle when we know the measure of the central angle or one or more of the arcs formed by the angle.

Angles and Triangles: Practice Problems

15. 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.

Congruency of Right Triangles: Definition of LA and LL Theorems

16. Congruency of Right Triangles: Definition of LA and LL Theorems

In this lesson, we'll learn two theorems that help us prove when two right triangles are congruent to one another. The LA theorem, or leg-acute, and LL theorem, or leg-leg, are useful shortcuts for proving congruence.
