Ch 20: TABE Math - Grade 6: Geometry

About This Chapter

Prepare for the TABE exam by reviewing basic geometry taught at the sixth-grade education level. Use video lessons and quizzes to learn how to measure the area of various shapes.

TABE Math - Grade 6: Geometry - Chapter Summary

The lessons in this chapter review geometrical concepts such as measuring the area of a parallelogram, rhombus, or trapezoid, and definitions of various shapes. Also covered is how to measure the area of complex figures, understand different views of 3-dimensional figures, and nets of 3-dimensional figures. By the end of this chapter, you should be familiar with:

  • Area of triangles and rectangles
  • Area of parallelograms, rhombuses, and trapezoids
  • Definition, shapes and angles of a polygon
  • Area of complex figures
  • Front, side and top view of 3-dimensional figures
  • Nets of 3-dimensional figures

Video lessons walk you through each concept and show you how to solve equations, and accompanying transcripts show bolded terms to help you remember the lesson. Use the jump feature under the Timeline tab to review main points from the video. Knowledgeable instructors are available to answer any questions you may have.

TABE Math - Grade 6: Geometry - Chapter Objectives

The TABE exam is a comprehensive test measuring adult basic skills. This test measures student competency in all major subject areas, including reading, mathematics computation, applied mathematics, language, language mechanics, vocabulary and spelling. The content found in this Grade 6: Geometry chapter of the math study guide is tested in the applied mathematics sections, which make up about 22% of the full-length TABE exam. This test can be administered in paper and pencil format or computer-based format and is a multiple-choice exam.

Area of Triangles and Rectangles

1. 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.

Measuring the Area of a Parallelogram: Formula & Examples

2. Measuring the Area of a Parallelogram: Formula & Examples

Watch this video lesson to learn the simple formula to find the area of a parallelogram. Learn what measurements you need, how to label your parallelogram, and how to use the formula.

Measuring the Area of a Rhombus: Formula & Examples

3. Measuring the Area of a Rhombus: Formula & Examples

Did you know that there are three ways to find the area of a rhombus? Watch this video lesson to learn all three of them. See what information you need for each method as well as the steps required for each.

Measuring the Area of a Trapezoid

4. Measuring the Area of a Trapezoid

In this video lesson, you will watch and learn how you can find the area of trapezoid. Learn what measurements you need to have on hand as well as the formula that you need to use.

What is a Polygon? - Definition, Shapes & Angles

5. What is a Polygon? - Definition, Shapes & Angles

Polygons are everywhere! In this lesson, you will learn what they are and what they look like. You will also learn about a special class of polygons and how to find its angles.

Area of Complex Figures

6. Area of Complex Figures

Finding the area of shapes isn't always as simple as it is with squares and rectangles. In this lesson, you'll learn how to find the area of complex figures. This includes finding the area of unusual shapes and finding the area of parts of shapes.

Front, Side & Top View of 3-Dimensional Figures

7. Front, Side & Top View of 3-Dimensional Figures

This lesson goes over the front, side, and top views of numerous 3-dimensional figures. You'll learn that while some look exactly the same from most angles, others do not.

Nets of 3-Dimensional Figures

8. Nets of 3-Dimensional Figures

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to deconstruct a 3-dimensional figure into its 2-dimensional net. Learn what kind of shape you will get after opening and flattening your 3-dimensional figure.
