In each of the content categories, the test will assess an examinee's ability to use appropriate mathematical language and representations of mathematical concepts, to connect mathematical concepts to one another and to real-world situations, and to integrate mathematical concepts to solve problems. Because the assessments were designed to measure the ability to integrate knowledge of mathematics, answering any question may involve more than one competency and may involve competencies from more than one content category. Representative descriptions of topics covered in each category are provided below.
Current section: I. Arithmetic and Basic Algebra
- I. Arithmetic
& Basic Algebra
- II. Geometry
- III. Functions
& Their Graphs
- IV. Data, Probability, & Statistical
Concepts; Discrete Mathematics
- V. Problem-Solving
V. Problem-Solving Exercises
Part B of the test contains three equally weighted constructed-response questions that together comprise 33 percent of the examinee's score. The primary focus of the three constructed-response questions will be distributed across the four previously described content categories. Also, the examinee will be expected to integrate knowledge from different areas of mathematics.
