Mathematics Competencies Tested on the PLACE

The math test covers three major skill areas addressing one or more sub-skills. An outline showing these major skill areas and their sub-skills is shown below and on the left-hand side of the screen.

Use mathematical reasoning in problem-solving situations to arrive at logical conclusions and to analyze the problem-solving process.

• analyzing problem solutions for logical flaws,
• identifying missing information needed to solve problems,
• evaluating a partial solution to a problem to determine an appropriate next step,
• and judging the validity or logic of an argument or advertising claim that is based on statistics or probability.

Use mathematical terms and representations to organize, interpret, and communicate information.

• analyzing data and making inferences from two or more graphic sources (e.g., diagrams, graphs, equations),
• restating a daily life problem in mathematical terms,
• representing graphically information presented in another form (e.g., a newspaper excerpt).

Apply knowledge of numerical, geometric, and algebraic relationships in realworld and mathematical contexts.

• using scales and ratios to interpret maps and models,
• using geometric concepts and formulas to solve problems related to everyday situations,
• applying appropriate algebraic concepts, formulas, and equations to the solution of problems.
