While you study GED^{®}* measurement and geometry* skills, it is helpful to put them in the context of the test as a whole.

According to the GED Testing Service^{®}, the GED Mathematics Test covers four major areas, each of which constitutes 20% to 30% of the questions.

- Number Operations and Number Sense
- Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability
- Algebra, Functions, and Patterns
- Measurement and Geometry

The test is administered in two, equally weighted parts.

- Part I consists of 25 questions to be completed in 45 minutes.
• Students are provided with a *Casio fx-260* calculator for this portion of the test. A downloadable PDF of the Calculator Handbook is found in the Resources section of this course.

- Part II consists of 25 questions to be completed in 45 minutes. Because estimation and mental math are deemed as essential math skills, no calculator is allowed.

A passing score of the GED Mathematics Test is the same as the other subject areas:

- 410 minimum score/450 average score
