Mathematics is an important aspect of any student’s learning journey. That’s why in Missouri, educators who want to teach mathematics must take and pass the Missouri Educator Gateway Assessment (MoGEA).
The Mathematics subtest assesses topics like algebra, geometry, and statistics. In addition to the math overview, this page also contains a recommendation on study materials that can help you prepare for the test.
What’s on the test?
The MoGEA Math Interpretation subtest contains three sections.
- Numbers and Algebra:
- Understanding integers, fractions, decimals, and other rational numbers.
- Understanding how algebra can solve math and real-world problems.
- Understanding how using percent, ratios, geometric sequences, and other numeric and algebraic reasoning skills can solve real-world problems.
- Using linear equations and inequalities to solve real-world problems.
- Measurement and Geometry:
- Understanding basic geometric figures
- Using angles, perimeter, area, circumference and surface areas to solve math and real-world measurement problems.
- Understanding similarity, congruence, Pythagorean theorem and other basic concepts to solve problems.
- Statistics and Data Analysis:
- Information analysis using tables, charts, plots, circle graphs, and other formats.
- Understanding sampling to draw conclusions about a population.
