### MTEL Math: Polar Coordinates & Parameterization Chapter Objectives

The Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) Mathematics assessment gauges the knowledge and skills of educators looking to teach the subject in classrooms throughout the state. It is a subject-matter test that is broken into six subareas and consists of 100 multiple-choice questions and two open-response assignments. You take the test on a computer and should prepare to spend four hours on questions, as well as 15 minutes filling out a nondisclosure agreement and taking a computer-based test (CBT) tutorial. Earning a passing score of 240 or higher helps secure your educator licensure.

Topics in this chapter on polar coordinates and parameterization prepare you for questions in the geometry and measurement subarea of the test. This subarea constitutes about 19% of the total test and consists of all multiple-choice questions. Study for this section by reviewing the lessons in this chapter. You can test your comprehension by taking short quizzes and a chapter exam. Any questions you have about lesson topics can be submitted to our experts.
