THEA Test: Ratios & Proportions Chapter Objectives
Texas public colleges and universities often use the THEA test as a way to gauge the reading, writing and math comprehension of students seeking admission as freshmen. The test is broken into three sections that are scored separately. This chapter helps you prepare for the mathematics section, which consists of 50 multiple-choice questions that explore geometry, fundamental math, problem solving and algebra. The topics covered in this chapter are part of the fundamental math area.
Make studying for this section of the test easier by reviewing the lessons in their video or written formats. You can also take self-assessment quizzes before or after reviewing the lessons to assess how well you understand ratios and proportions. A chapter exam helps reinforce concepts learned in all the lessons. Any questions you have about chapter topics can be submitted to our experts.
