### Objectives of the Praxis Mathematics: Polynomials Course

Candidates for secondary school level teaching licenses in many states are required to pass the Praxis exam in the subject area in which they wish to teach. Questions about polynomials are part of the section on algebra and number theory in the Praxis Content Knowledge test. The entire test contains 50 questions, and the algebra number theory section has eight questions, which constitute 16% of the test as a whole.

The questions on the exam are multiple-choice. You will be given a problem and four possible answers from which to choose. You must use a graphing calculator to answer some questions. The test takes two hours to complete. The self-assessment tests at the close of each lesson will enable you to become familiar with the question format as well as gauge your knowledge of polynomials.
