Praxis Mathematics: Content Knowledge - Algebraic Equations Objectives

Approximately 16% of the Praxis Mathematics: Content Knowledge test centers on algebra and number theory. You'll have two hours to complete the test's 50 multiple-choice questions, some of which require use of a graphing calculator. Other content areas covered in the Praxis math exam include geometry, trigonometry, calculus, data analysis and statistics, and discrete mathematics.

Much of this chapter will cover topics you've already explored in your bachelor's degree program; however, you might learn some new concepts or find some new tricks that can help you on the Praxis. You can begin each lesson in this chapter by taking the self-assessment quiz; then, watch the accompanying video, which was developed by an experienced professional educator. You might want to complete the lesson by taking the quiz a second time to see if you've fully absorbed the information.
