About This Chapter

Let us help you brush up on your numerical relationship skills. The video lessons and self-assessment quizzes in this chapter provide several approaches to help you succeed on the math portion of the California Basic Educational Skills Test.

CBEST Math: Numerical Relationships Chapter Summary

The mathematical portion of the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST) assesses prospective teachers' proficiency with numerical relationships, among other math topics. If you need to refresh your knowledge in this area, check out our video lessons that address rounding rules, logical math connectors and conditional statements in math. Additional topics covered in this chapter on numerical relationships include the following:

  • Identifying different types of numbers
  • Using a number line
  • Ordering decimal numbers
  • Comparing and ordering fractions
  • Recognizing relationships in numerical data
  • Using 'greater than,' 'less than' and 'equal to'
  • Inequalities
  • Identifying equivalent numbers
  • Conjunctions and disjunctions
  • Logical equivalence

Objectives of the CBEST Math: Numerical Relationships Chapter

Used by both California and Oregon, the California Basic Educational Skills Test is a credentialing exam for prospective public school teachers. The mathematics portion of this three-part, four-hour test includes 50 multiple-choice questions, most of which are presented as word problems. Approximately 35% of the test measures your skill in numerical and graphic relationships.

Before viewing each numerical relationship video lesson, you can measure your current ability through a self-assessment test. You might repeat this test after watching the video to see if your skills have improved.

What are the Different Types of Numbers?

1. What are the Different Types of Numbers?

Learn all of the different types of numbers: natural numbers, whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, irrational numbers, and real numbers. This video lesson teaches you how to classify any numbers you come across.

What Is a Number Line?

2. What Is a Number Line?

A number line is a visual representation of all real numbers. In this lesson, we'll learn how to identify points on a number line. We'll also practice addition and subtraction, letting the number line do all the hard work.

Comparing and Ordering Decimals

3. Comparing and Ordering Decimals

In this video lesson, you'll find out how you can look at any two decimals and immediately tell which is greater than the other. You'll also learn how to quickly sort decimals from least to greatest or vice versa.

Comparing and Ordering Fractions

4. Comparing and Ordering Fractions

Comparing and ordering fractions is way to examine fractions that contain different-sized sets. In order to compare these fractions, you must find a common denominator and make equivalent fractions.

What is an Inequality?

5. What is an Inequality?

Deciding how to spend your money can be a tricky thing. Should you save it, invest it, or enjoy it? Learn how inequalities can help you make your decision!

Logical Math Connectors: Conjunctions and Disjunctions

6. Logical Math Connectors: Conjunctions and Disjunctions

Watch this video lesson to learn how to identify conjunctions and disjunctions. Also learn the connectors that are used with each. Learn how you can use them to make statements.

Conditional Statements in Math

7. Conditional Statements in Math

Sometimes, what is true in the mathematical world of logic is false in the real world. Check out this lesson to learn how to identify conditional statements and how you can differentiate between what is logically true and what is true in reality.

Logic Laws: Converse, Inverse, Contrapositive & Counterexample

8. Logic Laws: Converse, Inverse, Contrapositive & Counterexample

Logical statements can be useful, but only if we are able to determine their validity. In this lesson, we'll look at the various forms of a logical statement and see how they relate to each other.

What is Expanded Form in Math? - Definition & Examples

9. What is Expanded Form in Math? - Definition & Examples

In this lesson, we'll review place value and find out how it's useful when writing numbers in expanded form. We'll also look at a few examples of numbers written out in expanded form.
