• The complex number system

Algebra (40%)

• Structure in expressions
• Arithmetic with polynomials and rational expressions
• Creating equations
• Reasoning with equations and inequalities

Discrete Mathematics and Calculus (30%)

• Sequences
• Discrete and continuous representations
• Vertex-edge graphs, trees, and networks
• Basic logic terminology and symbols
• Permutations and combinations
• Function limits
• Function derivatives
• Continuity vs. differentiability
• Function behaviors
• General calculus theorems
• Sequence limits
• The simple infinite series

SUBTEST II (023)
50 questions | 2 hours and 15 minutes

There are three subareas in the second subtest:

Functions (40%)

• Interpreting functions
• Linear, quadratic, and exponential models
• Trigonometric functions

Geometry (30%)

• Congruence
• Similarity
• Trigonometric ratios
• Geometric measurement
• Modeling with geometry

Probability and Statistics (30%)

• Interpreting categorical and quantitative data
• Making inferences

## How to Register

To get started with the registration process, you’ll need to create a MyPSC account on the GaPSC website. You should receive a Georgia Certification ID (GA CERT ID) during this process, which you’ll use for identification throughout the registration and testing process.

The next step is to create an ETS GACE testing account on the ETS website. This account will allow you to register for the exam and pay the testing fee(s). If you take each subtest separately, the fee is \$123 for each subtest. If you take both subtests together, the fee is \$193.

## How the Exam is Scored

The GACE Mathematics test is scored using a scaled scoring method. Here’s how it works:

Scaled Scoring
For every question you answer correctly, you get one point added to your raw score. At the end of the test, your final raw score will be converted to a scaled score. You’ll need a scaled score of at least 220 to pass the exam.

The reason your raw score is converted to a scaled score is because everyone that takes the test is given a slightly different set of questions. Since everyone has a different arrangement of questions, and because some questions are harder than others, converting your raw score to a scaled score ensures a more even playing field.

Passing Scores
There are two passing levels for this exam: induction and professional. Each level has its own minimum passing score requirements:

• Induction Level: 220-249
• Professional Level: 250

Here’s something to keep in mind: You have to pass at the professional level on BOTH subtests in order for your final exam scores to count at the professional level. If you only pass at the induction level on one of the subtests, your final exam score will only count at the induction level.

## Retaking the Exam

If you don’t get the score you want on your first try, that’s okay! You can take the exam again after a mandatory 30-day waiting period.
