Ch 39: OAE Middle Grades Math: Symmetry, Similarity & Congruence

As you prepare for the OAE Middle Grades Mathematics test, study the lessons in this chapter to improve your understanding of lines of symmetry, congruent shapes, and parallel and perpendicular lines.

OAE Middle Grades Math: Symmetry, Similarity & Congruence - Chapter Summary

The activities of this chapter have been assembled to aid in your review of symmetry, similarity and congruence in geometry. Our expert instructors review the properties of similar and congruent shapes, parallel lines with transverse lines, and perpendicular lines in geometric shapes. After these lessons, you should be better prepared for questions on the Ohio Assessments for Educators (OAE) Middle Grades Mathematics exam about:

• Lines of symmetry in geometric shapes
• Congruence and similarity in geometric shapes
• Parallel and transverse lines
• Perpendicular lines
• Parallel and perpendicular lines in geometric shapes

Use the quizzes that accompany these lessons to insure your retention of the information presented and find out what material you haven't mastered. Improve your understanding of any areas of weakness by returning to the lesson with video tags that take you directly to the locations that cover this material or read over written outlines with lesson transcripts.

OAE Middle Grades Math: Symmetry, Similarity & Congruence Chapter Objectives

The OAE Middle Grades Mathematics test is a certification exam used to test educators mastery over middle grade mathematics in the state of Ohio. This computer-based test is composed of 150 multiple-choice questions that are administered in a four-hour and 15-minute testing session. On test day, you can expect to see one-fourth of these questions to be about measurements and geometry, including some on the principles of similarity and congruence. Use the activities of this chapter to prepare for these questions and improve your understanding of symmetry, similarity and congruence in geometry.
