### Praxis Math: Objectives

The Math Content Knowledge exam assesses your knowledge, abilities, and skill in mathematical problem solving, reasoning and proof, representation, connections, and use of technology to measure your readiness for teacher licensing in math. Whether you take the paper-delivered or the computer-delivered Praxis Math test, the test will have 50 multiple-choice questions that require a graphing calculator. The test includes approximately five geometry questions, making up about ten percent of the total exam. For the geometry portion of the exam, you should know how to calculate volumes of 2- and 3-dimensional figures as well as of regions and solids composed of these figures.

The self-assessment quizzes included with each video lesson help you to check your understanding of the information you've learned as you go. Quizzes also help you gain experience with the types of questions you find on the actual test.
