GED Math - What to Expect


Are you considering returning to school to earn a GED? Are you concerned about the Math portion? One way to calm any anxiety is to know what to expect. So, letís get you informed.

How many questions?
The GED Math Test is one of five tests required. There are 50 questions divided into two parts with 25 questions on each. You are allowed ninety minutes. If you like multiple choice questions, you are in luck. 80 % of the 50 questions are multiple choice and 20% require you to produce the answer. The test comprises of 20% Ė 30% of each of the following areas.

1. Number Operations and Number Sense
2. Measurement and Geometry
3. Data Analysis
4. Algebra Functions and Patterns

Are calculators allowed?
A calculator is provided. However, it can only be used on Part 1. Once Part 1 is completed, give it to the Proctor and receive Part 2. Calculators are not allowed on Part 2 of the test.

What kind of calculator?
A Casio FX-260 calculator is provided. However, I suggest practicing with the Casio FX-260 Calculator as you prepare and study for the test. When I initially tried to find one in my local store I could not find it, but I found a similar one, a Casio FX- 300. It is best to practice with the calculator you will use on the day of the test.

Should formulas be memorized?
A formula sheet is included in the test booklet as well as most GED study guides. However, it is wise to familiarize yourself with the formulas and to learn how and when to use them. Also, since the test is timed, memorizing a few of the basic formulas may save time.

For more information, a 16-page GED Information Bulletin is available for download with sample questions, calculator instructions, formula sheet and other information on www.acenet.edu.
