Math test information and study help. The four major areas on the test are arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. Here are some of the main things you are expected to be able to do:


  • Understanding place value
  • Ordering numbers, including positives, negatives, fractions, and decimals
  • Rounding
  • Using the four basic arithmetic operations (add, subtract, multiply divide) using the order of operations (PEMDAS)
  • Finding factors and multiples
  • Identifying prime numbers
  • Performing operations with exponents and radicals
  • Performing operations on fractions
  • Converting between fractions, decimals, and percents
  • Calculating percents (including percent change)


  • Factoring and distributing algebraic expressions
  • Performing operations on polynomials
  • Solving equations with one variable
  • Solving systems of equations
  • Solving quadratic equations
  • Solving inequalities
  • Solving for absolute value
  • Solving problems involving rates, ratios, and proportions
  • Evaluating functions


  • Calculating angle measures
  • Classifying polygons
  • Finding perimeter and area of two-dimensional figures
  • Finding volume and surface area of three-dimensional figures
  • Converting between units of measurement
  • Using coordinate geometry to plot points, lines, and shapes; find slopes; write the equation of a line

Data Analysis

  • Reading and interpreting data on graphs, charts, and tables
  • Performing basic statistical calculations on a data set (mean, median, mode, range)
  • Finding simple and compound probability
