**How to Study Math: Geometry**

- Diagram for success.
**Geometry**is the study of the relationships between points, lines, surfaces, angles, and shapes. **Know**your properties and theorems.- Understand Euclid's postulates.
**Learn**the language of math.**Know**your angles.**Know**your triangles.- Figure out what you
**want**and what you're given. - Now fill in the rest.

Considering this, what are the basics of geometry?

Before diving into two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes, consider the basic geometric **objects** that create these shapes: points, lines, line segments, rays, and planes. A point is represented by a dot and shows a location in space.

**Geometry**helps us in deciding what materials to use, what design to make and also plays a vital role in the construction process itself. Different houses and buildings are built in different

**geometric**shapes to give a new look as well as to provide proper ventilation inside the house.

Similarly, you may ask, what you need to know to pass the geometry regents?

As of January 2018, students are required to earn 30 total credits to get a **passing** score of 65. For example, by answering 15 multiple choice questions correct (2 credits each), **you** would earn a **passing** score.

**The 10 listed for the SAT are:**

- Area and perimeter of a polygon.
- Area and circumference of a circle.
- Volume of a box, cube, and cylinder.
- Pythagorean Theorem and special properties of isosceles, equilateral, and right triangles.
- Properties of parallel and perpendicular lines.
- Coordinate geometry.
- Geometric visualization.
- Slope.
