MTTC Elementary Education: Geometry Concepts - Chapter Summary

The basic concepts of geometry are reviewed in this chapter, including points, lines and angles. Parallel, perpendicular, and transverse lines are also explored in these lessons. Once you're done with this chapter, you should also be ready to correctly answer any MTTC Elementary Education test items dealing with the following:

  • Obtuse, straight, and acute angles
  • Basic shapes and their properties
  • Three-dimensional shapes
  • The Cartesian coordinate plane
  • The sections of a graph
  • Properties of similar and congruent shapes
  • Transformations in math
  • The concept of symmetry in math

The lessons' accompanying self-assessment quizzes ensure you have a solid understanding of what you review in the chapter. Use the Timeline to locate any video segments that you'd like to rewatch.

Points, Lines & Angles in Geometry

1. Points, Lines & Angles in Geometry

After watching this video lesson, you should understand the basic terms that form the foundation of geometry. Learn what a point is, what a line is, what an angle is, and learn about a special type of angle called a right angle.

Overview of the Basic Shapes in Geometry

2. Overview of the Basic Shapes in Geometry

Watch this video lesson to learn about some basic shapes in geometry. These are the shapes that you will come across most often in math. Watch as triangles, rectangles, pentagons, and circles come by.

Overview of Three-dimensional Shapes in Geometry

3. Overview of Three-dimensional Shapes in Geometry

We are surrounded by three-dimensional shapes. Watch this video lesson to see what some three-dimensional shapes look like, such as a cube, a sphere, a brick, and a cylinder.

What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?

4. What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?

Being able to read a graph isn't just vital for an algebra class. Graphs and charts are used everywhere! We'll take a crash course on the basic x/y plane used in algebra and the fundamental vocab you need.

Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane

5. Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane

If you'll be working with a graph, otherwise known as the coordinate plane, it's essential to understand how it works. This includes learning the parts of a graph, identifying points and plotting points.

Properties of Congruent and Similar Shapes

6. Properties of Congruent and Similar Shapes

In this lesson, we'll look at triangles, rectangles and other shapes that share properties. This includes both congruent and similar shapes. We'll also practice identifying the missing properties of these shapes.

Transformations in Math: Definition & Graph

7. Transformations in Math: Definition & Graph

In geometry, transformation refers to the movement of objects in the coordinate plane. This lesson will define and give examples of each of the four common transformations and end with a quiz to make sure you are moving in the right direction.

What is Symmetry in Math? - Definition & Concept

8. What is Symmetry in Math? - Definition & Concept

Symmetry occurs in many areas of mathematics. This lesson explains symmetry in math and explores the three basic types of symmetry: rotational symmetry, reflection symmetry, and point symmetry.
