Ch 32: SAT Math - Geometry and Measurement: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The SAT Math - Geometry and Measurement chapter of this SAT Prep Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about geometry and measurement. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the geometry and measurement operations and properties required for the SAT exam.

How it works:

  • Begin your review or other SAT preparation work.
  • Identify the geometry and measurement concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our SAT prep tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to review geometry and measurement and earn acceptable scores on the SAT. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding properties of shapes, special right triangles, the Pythagorean theorem, transformations, or any other geometry and measurement topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their SAT math preparation
  • Prefer learning SAT math topics visually
  • Find themselves needing help with the geometry and measurement portion of their review
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in their SAT preparation
  • Don't have access to an SAT math instructor

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make reviewing geometry and measurement for the SAT simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live SAT prep tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn geometry and measurement on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

1. 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.

Properties of Shapes: Rectangles, Squares and Rhombuses

2. Properties of Shapes: Rectangles, Squares and Rhombuses

What's the difference between a square and a rectangle? What about a rhombus and a square? In this lesson, we'll look at the properties of these shapes.

Area of Triangles and Rectangles

3. Area of Triangles and Rectangles

How do you find out the area of rectangles and triangles? Learn how in this lesson! We'll look at the formulas, then practice solving problems for each shape.

Finding the Properties of Three-Dimensional Objects on the SAT

4. Finding the Properties of Three-Dimensional Objects on the SAT

Struggling with 3-D geometry problems on the SAT, like the problems about cubes and spheres? In this lesson, you'll learn how to crack them by breaking them down into more familiar 2-D shapes and solving from there.

How to Calculate the Volumes of Basic Shapes

5. How to Calculate the Volumes of Basic Shapes

Squares pegs = square holes. Triangular pegs = triangular holes. But where does a sphere go? In this lesson, review volumes of common shapes while contrasting a sphere and a cylinder - after all, they both go into the circular hole... right?

Properties of Shapes: Circles

6. Properties of Shapes: Circles

Circles are fundamental to everything we do. But, did you know they're much more than just round shapes? In this lesson, we'll look at the various parts of circles and how they all relate.

Circles: Area and Circumference

7. Circles: Area and Circumference

Understanding how to calculate the area and circumference of circles plays a vital role in some of our everyday functions. They serve as the foundation for operating with three-dimensional figures. Learn more about the area and circumference of circles in this lesson.

Graphing Circles: Identifying the Formula, Center and Radius

8. Graphing Circles: Identifying the Formula, Center and Radius

Discover how to graph circles by finding key information like the center and radius. Identify circles by simply looking at the formula, and vice versa.

Converting Between Radians and Degrees

9. Converting Between Radians and Degrees

Angles can be measured in degrees or radians. This lesson will explore the difference and provide you with a simple calculation that can be used to convert degrees into radians and radians into degrees.

How to Find the Arc Length of a Function

10. How to Find the Arc Length of a Function

You don't always walk in a straight line. Sometimes, you want to know the distance between two points when the path is curved. In this lesson, you'll learn about finding the length of a curve.

Measurements of Lengths Involving Tangents, Chords and Secants

11. Measurements of Lengths Involving Tangents, Chords and Secants

The lengths of chords, tangents and secants take on unique relationships when they're drawn on circles. In this lesson, we'll define those relationships and see them in action.

Finding the Area of a Sector: Formula & Practice Problems

12. Finding the Area of a Sector: Formula & Practice Problems

In this lesson, you'll review your knowledge of circle vocabulary and then discover how to calculate the area of a sector of a circle. The lesson covers finding the area of the sector using degrees and radians.

How to Find the Measure of an Inscribed Angle

13. How to Find the Measure of an Inscribed Angle

Finding the measure of an inscribed angle requires knowing a little information. In this lesson, we'll find the measure of an inscribed angle when we know the measure of the central angle or one or more of the arcs formed by the angle.

Angles and Triangles: Practice Problems

14. Angles and Triangles: Practice Problems

Want more practice solving with angle pairs? How about more review for solving angles in triangles? Look no further. Get more practice here, and test your ability with a quiz.

Congruency of Right Triangles: Definition of LA and LL Theorems

15. Congruency of Right Triangles: Definition of LA and LL Theorems

In this lesson, we'll learn two theorems that help us prove when two right triangles are congruent to one another. The LA theorem, or leg-acute, and LL theorem, or leg-leg, are useful shortcuts for proving congruence.
