NES Math: Logic Chapter Objectives

Passing the NES Math exam is one of the conditions for certification to teach math in several states. This test is administered by computer and consists entirely of multiple-choice questions that are divided into five content domains. Questions on logic are in the Mathematical Processes and Number Sense content domain, which accounts for 19% of the test's total scoring.

Taking our lesson quizzes and the Logic chapter exam allow you to assess your learning and determine where you need extra study. Our quizzes are in multiple-choice form, like the NES Math assessment, so completing them will give you a taste of what you'll encounter on test day.
