CUNY Assessment Test in Math: Analytical Geometry Chapter Objectives

CUNY uses the Assessment Test in Math to determine placement of newly-admitted students in its math classes. The test has four sections, progressively more advanced, and questions on the material in the analytical geometry chapter are in the section on algebra.

All questions on the CUNY test are multiple choice, requiring you to solve a problem and select the correct answer from several options. The questions on our lesson quizzes and the chapter exam are in this format. In addition to offering practice answering these types of questions, our quizzes let you assess your learning and determine where you need extra study time.
