# Ch 36: MTEL Math: Symmetry, Similarity & Congruence

### About This Chapter

As you study for the MTEL Mathematics exam, use the lessons of this chapter to prepare for questions regarding symmetry, similarity and congruence in geometry.

## MTEL Math: Symmetry, Similarity & Congruence - Chapter Summary

Before taking the MTEL Math exam, watch the lessons of this chapter to improve your understanding of geometric symmetry, similarity and congruence. In these lessons, our professional instructors demonstrate how to solve example problems so that you can follow along and improve your own mathematical skills and knowledge in the following areas:

• Understanding lines of symmetry in shapes
• Geometric congruence and similarity of shapes
• Properties of parallel, transverse and perpendicular lines
• Identifying the parallel lines of different geometric shapes
• Constructing and identifying perpendicular lines, and finding perpendicular lines in shapes

To reinforce your retention of the information presented in these lessons, read the transcripts and then test your understanding of the material by taking the quizzes. Review your quiz results to discover topics you don't understand and use the video tags to return to and study the parts of the lessons that explained them. After you have completed the lessons and quizzes of this chapter, test your understanding of geometric symmetry, similarity and congruence by taking the practice chapter exam before you sit for the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) Mathematics exam.

### MTEL Math: Symmetry, Similarity & Congruence Chapter Objectives

The MTEL Mathematics exam is a certification exam administered to future math teachers of Massachusetts to determine if they possess the mathematical skills and knowledge needed to teach math students. On test day, you will be asked a series of 100 multiple-choice questions and given two open-response items to complete, all in a four-hour testing session. Of the material presented on this exam, 19% will be covered by multiple-choice questions about geometry and measurement. Use this chapter to prepare for related questions about geometric symmetry, similarity and congruence.
