CSET Math Subtest II Exam Information
The CSET Mathematics Subtest II is a computer-based exam used to award single-subject teaching credentials to aspiring math teachers in California. Subtest II is the second portion of a three-part exam.
- Number of Questions: 38 questions
- Question Type: 35 multiple-choice and three constructed-response questions
- Time Limit: 2 hours and 30 minutes
- Exam Cost: $99
Preparing and Registering for the CSET Mathematics Subtest II
Our study guide allows you to explore the same topics found on the exam through two different instructional formats. Materials at your disposal include short, engaging videos taught by experienced instructors. There are also transcripts if you'd rather access content in a written format, and the multiple-choice quizzes allow you to check your understanding of each lesson's main ideas.
The math subtest II is administered year round, six days a week. You can register for the exam up to four days prior to taking it. This process requires you to create an online account by entering your personal information, selecting the test you want to take, signing up for any special testing accommodations and submitting payment information. Once this stage of the registration process is complete, you'll be sent an authorization to test, at which point you can select a test location and date.
Scoring the CSET Mathematics Subtest II
Responses to multiple-choice questions account for 70% of your score; short-answer questions comprise the other 30%. You'll need a minimum scaled score of 220 to pass. Results are released around six weeks after your test date.
Questions in this content domain require an understanding of how the parallel postulate and related theorems are used to describe the sum of a triangle's interior angles. You'll also need to be familiar with the implications of variants to this theorem.
Plane Euclidean Geometry
This content domain asks you to prove similar triangles and determine their congruence. You'll need to apply the law of sines, the law of cosines and the Pythagorean theorem to find a triangle's unknown angles or sides. An ability to determine the area of circles and regular polygons is required as well.
Test questions included on this part of the exam ask you to apply your knowledge of triangle properties in order to calculate the surface area and volume of pyramids and prisms. You'll use your understanding of circle properties to determine measurements for cones, spheres and cylinders.
This brief content domain assess your comprehension of congruence transformations that flip, shift or rotate two- and three-dimensional shapes. You'll also need to be familiar with dilations that stretch or shrink them.
Use your aptitude for calculating the probability of combinations and permutations to successfully answer questions included on this part of the test. You must be able to demonstrate an understanding of finite and conditional probabilities as well as binomial and exponential distributions.
This final content domain asks you to determine measures of central tendency when given continuous and discrete distributions. You'll also need to establish their standard deviation, range and variance. Other test questions ask you to select the proper sample type for the task at hand and demonstrate your understanding of the the chi-square test and the method of least squares.
