# Ch 8: Praxis I Math: Congruence and Similarity

Let us help you understand congruence and similarity and prepare for the geometry and measurement section of the Praxis I Math test. Self-assessment quizzes and video lessons will give you a variety of approaches to help you prepare for the test.

## Praxis I Math: Congruence and Similarity - Chapter Summary

Your video instructors will break down each lesson in this chapter while offering you tips on how you can best use the information you learn on the Praxis. Lessons will be taught through a variety of learning approaches so that you can be fully prepared for the Praxis I and so that your lessons don't become one-dimensional and uninteresting.

The chapter is intended to help you better understand congruence, properties of shapes and similarity in addition to related topics, such as:

• Properties of congruent and similar shapes
• Identifying similar triangles
• Applying scale factors to perimeter, area and volume of similar figures
• Applications of similar triangles
• Shifting graphs on a plane

### Congruence and Similarity Course Objectives

The overall goal of the Math exam is to gauge the mathematical concepts and skills that an adult with a degree might need as well as their ability to reason and solve problems in a quantitative context. This course covers information found on the geometry and measurement section of the test, which is roughly 22.5% of the exam. Usually there are 10 multiple choice geometry and measurement questions on the exam. You'll have 75 minutes to complete all 46 questions on the exam. You will not be allowed to use a calculator on the Praxis I Math test.

As you complete the self-assessment quizzes, you'll start to have a better idea of the types of questions you'll be answering on the exam and how well you can use the testing methods you've learned.
