NES Math: Foundations of Geometry - Chapter Objectives

Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin have made passing the NES Math test one of the conditions for obtaining certification to teach the subject at the secondary level. The test is divided into five content domains. Questions on the material this chapter covers are in the content domain of Measurement and Geometry, which makes up 19% of the test's 150 multiple-choice questions.

You can use our lesson quizzes and the chapter exam to gain experience answering multiple-choice test questions on a computer. Our tests also provide an assessment of your learning, and the answer keys include links back to pertinent parts of the video lessons. That means that, if you miss an answer, it's easy to jump back to the lesson and get the right information.
