The Math Test focuses on the two areas of math that play the biggest role in a wide range of college majors and careers:
- Heart of Algebra, which focuses on the mastery of linear equations and systems.
- Problem Solving and Data Analysis, which is about analyzing problems and drawing information from data.
- There are also several questions from a category called Passport to Advanced Math, which features questions that ask you to manipulate complex equations.
The Math Test is divided into two parts: a no-calculator portion and a calculator portion. In both portions, most of the test is multiple choice, but some of the questions at the end ask you to write the answer (these are called “grid-ins”).
