You may want to evaluate whether you are truly ready for taking the OAE Middle Grades Mathematics test, so we provide assessment tools in the form of quizzes and a chapter exam.

OAE Middle Grades Math: Number Patterns & Sequences Objectives

Before teaching mathematics to students in grades 4-9, Ohio teachers have to take one pedagogical assessment test as well as one content assessment test, which is the OAE Middle Grades Mathematics test. This particular content assessment analyzes a teacher's ability to perform mathematical operations across the major fields of study associated with the learning standards for students within this age range. Questions about sequences and number patterns fall in operations and number sense domain of the test; 17% of the multiple-choice questions on this assessment are part of that domain.
