### MTEL Math: Rational & Irrational Numbers Chapter Objectives

The objective of the MTEL Mathematics exam is to examine and evaluate the content-area expertise of teacher candidates as part of the teacher certification and endorsement process. Each candidate's performance is measured against a state-established set of criteria rather than against the performance of other candidates. There are five subareas from which the multiple-choice questions are drawn and a sixth that contains the two open-ended response items required on the exam. This chapter aligns with Subarea I: Number Sense and Operations. This subarea contains about 16 questions and accounts for 12% of the test.

There are 100 multiple-choice questions for you to answer on the MTEL Mathematics exam. The remaining two assignments are open-ended response items. They will require you to compose a written response related to a given topic which may be drawn from any of the other subareas. You must answer both of the open-ended questions with responses that will meet the length requirement of 150 to 300 words. The MTEL Mathematics test is a computer-based exam.
