### MTEL Math: Piecewise, Absolute Value & Step Functions Chapter Objectives

In Massachusetts, educators take the MTEL Mathematics assessment to obtain teacher licensure needed to educate students in classrooms throughout the state. The computer-based test consists of 100 multiple-choice questions and 2 open-response items that are divided into six subareas. Topics in this chapter are found in the patterns, relations and algebra subarea, which constitutes about 23% of the total test. This subarea consists of all multiple-choice questions.

You can use the lessons in this chapter to brush up on your knowledge of piecewise, absolute value and step functions as you study for the test. If you need to revisit specific portions of the videos, use timelines with video tags to skip to key topics. Test your knowledge of the lessons by taking self-assessment quizzes and a chapter exam. These steps can get you closer to your goal of earning a passing score of 240 or higher on the exam.
