### TExMaT Master Mathematics Teacher 8-12: Analytical Geometry Chapter Objectives

Questions pertaining to slope, midpoint, translations, transformations and other analytical geometry concepts can be found on the TExMaT Master Mathematics Teacher 8-12 examination's 'Geometry and Measurement' domain. This fourth section of the six-domain examination adds up to 18% of the entire score. In order to earn the Master Mathematics Teacher (MMT) designation, you'll demonstrate your mastery of analytical geometry and other mathematics content areas. The paper-based examination will last up to five hours. It consists of 90 multiple-choice questions and one case study assignment.

### 1. The Cartesian Coordinate System: Plotting Points & Graphing Lines

Watch this video lesson to see how useful the Cartesian coordinate system is. Learn how points are labeled and how you can plot points and graph lines using the system.

### 2. How to Use The Midpoint Formula

The formula for the midpoint of a line segment will tell you how to find the middle of any line segment on the x, y plane. Learn about this formula and see how it is used to find the midpoint of a line segment.

### 3. How to Use The Distance Formula

You can't always rely on your smartphone to tell you how far you need to travel to get from point A to point B. The distance formula will tell you the distance between any two points on a graph. In this lesson, you'll learn where it comes from and how to use it!

### 4. Calculating the Slope of a Line: Point-Slope Form, Slope-Intercept Form & More

Being able to calculate the slope of a line is a very useful skill to have. Why? Watch this video lesson to find out and learn how to find the slope when working with various equations and various lines.

### 5. Transformations in Math: Definition & Graph

In geometry, transformation refers to the movement of objects in the coordinate plane. This lesson will define and give examples of each of the four common transformations and end with a quiz to make sure you are moving in the right direction.

### 6. What is Translation in Math? - Definition, Examples, & Terms

In mathematics, translation refers to moving an object without changing it in any other way. This lesson will describe how to translate an object and give some examples. A quiz will follow to test your knowledge.
