GED Mathematical Reasoning Exam
Everything you need to know!
The GED Mathematical Reasoning exam evaluates your ability to solve mathematical problems and apply math to a variety of contexts. You will have 90 minutes to answer approximately 46 questions. For the first five questions on the test, you will not be able to use the calculator. You can take up to 12 of the 90 minutes with these questions.
Check all of your work carefully before you leave this section of the test. You will not be able to return to these problems once the online calculator is enabled. For the rest of the test, you’ll have access the online calculator by clicking on the calculator icon. You can also take your own hand-held TI-30XS MultiView™ calculator to use on test day.
