NES Math: Vector Operations - Chapter Objectives

Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin use the NES Math test as one way of assessing readiness for certification to teach the subject at the secondary level. The test is computer-delivered and consists entirely of multiple-choice questions, divided into five content domains. Questions on vector operations are in the content domain on Statistics, Probability, and Discrete Mathematics, which accounts for 19% of the test's total score.

The lesson quizzes and the chapter exam we offer are in the same format as the NES Math test, so taking them will help you become familiar with the types of questions you'll face. Our tests also show you where you may need additional study prior to test day, and video links can point you to the right spots in the lesson for review.
