MTEL Math: Polynomial Functions Basics Chapter Objectives

The MTEL Mathematics exam is a criterion-referenced and competency-based test required for content-area endorsement or teacher licensure. This is a computer-based exam consisting of six total subareas. The Polynomial Functions Basics chapter of our MTEL Math test prep study guide is aligned to competencies falling under Subarea I: Number Sense and Operations. There are between 14 and 16 questions in this subarea, and it accounts for 12% of the overall exam.

Altogether, you have 100 multiple-choice questions to answer and two open-ended response assignments to complete. Topics for the open-ended assignments may be drawn from any of the subareas, and will require you to develop a composition of between 150 and 300 words. You must complete both of the assignments.
