GED Mathematical Reasoning

The GED® Mathematical Reasoning Test focuses on two major content areas: *quantitative problem solving* and *algebraic problem solving*.

The GED® Mathematical Reasoning Test focuses on the fundamentals of mathematics in these two areas, striking a balance of deeper conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and the ability to apply these fundamentals in realistic situations. A variety of item types are used in the test, including multiple-choice, drag-and-drop, hot spot, and fill-in-the-blank.

- Approximately 45% of the content in the test focuses on
**quantitative problem solving**, and approximately 55% focuses on**algebraic problem solving**. - The contexts within which problem solving skills are measured were taken from both academic and workforce contexts.

**MATHEMATICAL PRACTICES**

In addition to the content-based indicators, the GED® mathematics test also focuses on reasoning skills, as embodied by the GED® Mathematical Practices.
