Math Assessments
There are 3 possible math assessments. You will choose which test to take based upon your Redlands degree pathway.
The Arithmetic Test has three types of questions:
 Operations with whole numbers and fractions
 Including: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, recognizing equivalent fractions and mixed numbers, and estimating.
 Operations with decimals and percentages
 Including: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division with decimals, percent problems, recognition of decimals, fraction and percent equivalencies, estimation.
 Applications and Problem Solving
 Including: rate, percent, and measurement problems, simple geometry, distribution of a quantity into its fractional parts.
The Elementary Algebra Test has three types of questions:
 Integers and rational numbers, computation with integers and negative rationals, the use of absolute values, ordering
 Operations with algebraic expressions using evaluation of simple formulas and expressions; adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing monomials and polynomials; evaluation of positive rational roots and exponents, simplifying algebraic fractions, factoring.
 Solution of equations, inequalities, and word problems; solving linear equations and inequalities; solution of quadratic equations by factoring; verbal problems in an algebraic context, geometric reasoning and graphing; the translation of written phrases into algebraic expressions.
The College Level Math Test assesses intermediate algebra through precalculus. Including:
 Algebraic operations: simplifying rational algebraic expressions, factoring, expanding polynomials, manipulating roots and exponents.
 Solutions of equations: solution of linear and quadratic equations and inequalities, equation systems, other algebraic equations.
 Coordinate geometry: plane geometry, the coordinate plane, straight lines, conics, sets of points in the plane, graphs of algebraic functions.
 Applications and other algebra topics: complex numbers, series and sequences, determinants, permutations and combinations, fractions, word problems.
 Functions and trigonometry: polynomials, algebraic, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions.
