GRE Quantitative Reasoning Objectives

Designed to help predict a student's capacity to perform satisfactorily in graduate school, the GRE contains a section on quantitative reasoning that makes up approximately one third of the test. Our instructional videos on series and sequences relate information used in this portion of the GRE. Lesson objectives are offered in:

  • Identifying types of mathematical sequences
  • Formulating arithmetic sequences
  • Discerning geometric sequences
  • Understanding the arithmetic series formula
  • Utilizing mathematical logic and critical thinking

The GRE's quantitative reasoning section tests in areas of geometry, algebra, arithmetic, and data analysis. For some questions, you will be offered multiple responses and asked to choose one or more correct answers. Others will offer problems for which you will determine and enter your own numerical response.
