About the 2002 Series Mathematics Test
The GED® Mathematics Test is divided into two parts and measures your problem-solving skills, ability to interpret charts, tables, and graphs, and solve real-life problems.
The Mathematics Test is 90 minutes long (45 minutes for each part) and features 80 percent multiple choice questions and 20 percent constructed answers. Constructed answer means that you’ll be asked to label certain points on a grid or write answers in a blank, rather than selecting from multiple choice options. The content of the test breaks down like this:
- Number operations and number sense (20-30%)
- Measurement and geometry (20-30%)
- Data analysis, statistics, and probability (20-30%)
- Algebra, functions, and patterns (20-30%)
Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to be a calculator. We’ll let you use one of the approved calculators on the first half of the Mathematics Test. Part II of the test is without a calculator and measures your ability to perform some mental math.
