About This Chapter

This chapter is designed to help you review materials about symmetry, congruence and similarity. The end goal is to get you ready for the Ohio Graduation Test.

Ohio Graduation Test: Symmetry, Similarity & Congruence - Chapter Summary

The content covered in this engaging chapter is designed to help you gain some of the knowledge you need to pass Ohio Graduation Test. It includes mathematical principles such as symmetry and congruence. You will also review:

  • The lines of symmetry and congruence in geometric shapes
  • Similarity in geometric shapes
  • Different types of lines
  • The process of creating perpendicular lines and identifying geometric transverse, perpendicular and parallel lines

Review the different types of lines by looking at the material in each lesson, which includes an information-rich transcript and a five-question quiz. After you have studied the chapter, you will have the skills and knowledge necessary to do well on the Ohio Graduation Test.

Ohio Graduation Test: Symmetry, Similarity & Congruence Chapter Objectives

If you are looking to graduate high school early, you can take the Ohio Graduation Test. This test consists of different sections such as math, reading and writing. The materials that are included in this chapter are part of the mathematical section of the exam.

One extended-response question, five short-answer questions and 32 multiple-choice questions are included in the exam. You will be asked to analyze different shapes and to identify the various types of lines that make up these shapes. Getting ready for the test questions doesn't have to be time-consuming when you look through each lesson and take advantage of the self-assessment quizzes.

What is a Line of Symmetry in Geometric Shapes?

1. What is a Line of Symmetry in Geometric Shapes?

After viewing this lesson, you should be able to identify shapes that have a line of symmetry in them and know how to find where this line is. A short quiz to test your knowledge will follow the lesson.

Congruence in Geometric Shapes

2. Congruence in Geometric Shapes

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can determine whether two shapes are congruent or not. You will learn what the one criterion is when determining congruency between two shapes.

Similarity in Geometric Shapes

3. Similarity in Geometric Shapes

View this lesson to learn how you can determine whether shapes are similar. Find out how to use the one rule that tells you when your two shapes are geometrically similar.

Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

4. Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

What are the different types of lines? Where are they visible in the real world and how can you recognize them? Find out here and test your knowledge with a quiz.

Identifying Parallel Lines in Geometric Shapes

5. Identifying Parallel Lines in Geometric Shapes

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can spot parallel lines in a rectangle, in a square, and in a parallelogram. You will learn how many pairs of parallel lines each of these shapes has.

Constructing Perpendicular Lines in Geometry

6. Constructing Perpendicular Lines in Geometry

In this video lesson, you will see how to use geometric construction to draw perpendicular lines. Learn why geometric construction is useful. Also find out the only two tools in addition to your pencil that you need to do this.

Identifying Perpendicular Lines in Geometric Shapes

7. Identifying Perpendicular Lines in Geometric Shapes

Do you know what a perpendicular line is? Do you know how to spot one in a geometric shape? This lesson will tell you how to spot perpendicular lines in squares, rectangles, triangles, and trapezoids.
