Ch 30: NMTA Essential Academic Skills Math: Geometric Symmetry

About This Chapter

The NMTA Essential Academic Skills Mathematics test has been replaced with the NES Essential Academic Skills Subtest III: Mathematics. Complete the lessons in this chapter to review the principles and properties of lines of symmetry as well as parallel, lines and transverse lines.

NMTA Essential Academic Skills Math: Geometric Symmetry - Chapter Summary

The lessons and assessments of this chapter have been put together to help you review the characteristics and construction of different types of lines. Start by watching our professional instructors in a series of short, engaging lesson videos as they explain these properties and prepare you for exam questions about:

  • Lines of symmetry in geometric shapes
  • Properties of parallel, perpendicular and transverse lines
  • Constructing perpendicular lines

Watch these videos on the go with your mobile devises, then complete the lesson quizzes that accompany them to find out if there are topics you don't fully understand. Use the results from these assessments to find your own areas of weakness, then fortify these areas by returning to the lessons with video tags. If you feel you would benefit an alternative review of the material try reading over the lesson transcripts that present the same material as written overviews.
