Mathematical Reasoning

Mathematical Reasoning

The GED® Mathematical Reasoning Test focuses on two major content areas:

  • Quantitative problem solving (45%)
  • Algebraic problem solving (55%)


Problem solving skills are measured in both academic and workforce contexts. In addition to problem solving, the test includes items that test procedural skill and fluency. The test also assesses five mathematical practice areas and about 30% of the test items measure one of the mathematical practices, as well as a content indicator.


Candidates are provided with an on-screen calculator, the Texas Instruments TI-30XS Multiview scientific calculator, for use on most of the items on the 2014 GED® Mathematics Test.
