### MTEL Math: Decimals Chapter Objectives

The primary objective of the MTEL Mathematics exam is to evaluate the content-area knowledge of teacher candidates seeking licensure or teachers seeking subject-area endorsement. The test is criterion-referenced, so each candidate's performance is measured against a state-defined set of criteria instead of against other candidates. This chapter addresses Subarea I: Number Sets and Operations, one of the six subareas contained in the test. Subarea I is composed of about 16 questions and is weighted at 12% of the test.

There are 100 multiple-choice items and two open-ended response assignments on this computer-based exam. Both of the open-ended response questions must be completed, and the topics to which you will address your compositions may be taken from any of the subareas on the test. Your written responses must meet the length requirement of between 150 and 300 words.
