# Ch 11: Measuring Geometric Figures

Watch these lessons for a recap on the formulas used for measuring geometric figures. Brush up on determining the area or volume of different shapes by listening to the instructors take you through the process step-by-step.

## Measuring Geometric Figures - Chapter Summary

While you may remember the basics of determining area or volume, those formulas change when you are measuring different geometric figures. These lessons offer a review of the basic formula for measuring area, and the different formulas you will need to know to accurately measure the areas of rectangles, parallelograms, and circles. Additionally, this chapter will address how to calculate the volume of spheres, cylinders, cones, pyramids, and prisms. By completing this chapter, you should have a better grasp on these topics and the following:

• Circumference and area formulas for circles
• Algebraic expressions in relation to 2D and 3D figures
• The basic properties of triangles
• Finding a triangle's median
• Analyzing complex figures and determining their area
• The area of rectangles compared to the area of triangles

Our brief video lessons are led by expert instructors who aim to present the information in a clear and comprehensible way. While the lessons are in a specific order, you don't have to watch them in order, especially if you are reviewing the information in preparation for a certification test or some other assessment. You'll notice that you also have access to related chapters. The related chapters can help you get up to speed on other mathematics topics that you will need to cover to be ready for your test.
