# Ch 18: Perimeter, Area & Volume in Geometry

Lessons in this chapter can show you how to calculate spatial measurements for triangles, rectangles and other two- or three-dimensional shapes. Use them to prepare for geometry questions appearing on math portion of the CAHSEE.

## Perimeter, Area & Volume in Geometry - Chapter Summary

Take advantage of video lessons covering perimeter, area and volume to prepare for the multiple-choice questions and word problems included on the math portion of the CAHSEE. This chapter is designed to teach you formulas for calculating:

• Circumference and area of circles
• Area and perimeter of triangles and rectangles
• Volume of cylinders, cones, spheres, prisms and pyramids
• Area of complex and irregular two-dimensional figures
• Perimeter and area of rectangular and irregular three-dimensional figures

Use this chapter's short, engaging video lessons and transcripts to familiarize yourself with the dimensions and mathematical functions needed to solve these types of problems. You can even get an idea of how actual test questions are formatted with the self-assessment quizzes included at the end of each lesson. This resource includes links back to corresponding video content and practice problems.

### Perimeter, Area & Volume in Geometry - Objectives

If you're a high school student in California, passing scores on the CAHSEE's math portion are among the requirements for a diploma. The test is administered to sophomores and includes 80 multiple-choice questions. Video lessons and quizzes included in this chapter are designed to help you prepare for the 17 questions found in the Measurement and Geometry section.

On this part of the exam, you'll be given a series of two- or three-dimensional shapes and asked to select an answer representing the correct area, surface area, perimeter, circumference or volume. A word problem requiring you to combine these geometry skills is included at the end of the section.
