Mathematics Competencies Tested on the Praxis Core
The Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators: Mathematics (5732) test assesses academic skills that have been identified as necessary for college and career readiness. The four main content areas that will be tested are:
- Number and Quantity
- Algebra and Functions
- Statistics and Probability
The purpose of this course is to provide a listing and description of the skills included in each math skill subarea along with instruction to further illustrate the knowledge needed to pass the Praxis Core Mathematics test. It is suggested that you first familiarize yourself with the math skill subareas and the examples given. Then try the first of the four sample math tests.
The answers that are given at the end of each test will clearly show how well you understand the material and what must be learned to score well on the actual test. Use these explanations to plan further study and improvement. Then try another sample test, review the answers, and improve the likelihood of an improved score on any test in the future.
With four sample tests in this course, a cycle of testing, reviewing, and improving can be repeated. Each cycle will improve your ability to pass each succeeding test.
The menu at the left can be used to select portions of each skill subarea, go to a sample test, return to the Main Menu, or sign out. If you want to see all of the content tested on the math test, use the Next button at the bottom of the screens to access each page in the sequence.
