The Mathematics Section | TASC Test

At Data Recognition Corporation | CTB, we have organized the TASC Test Assessing Secondary Completion™ according to varying levels of emphasis. High emphasis areas are incredibly important for test takers, as they are the focus of the majority of questions on the exam. In terms of the math section, you should focus particularly on your mathematical reasoning.

Start studying for your high school equivalency by familiarizing yourself with these high emphasis areas. Once you’ve mastered these areas, you can move onto the medium and low emphases.

Mathematical Reasoning


Mathematical reasoning is a critical skill that enables individuals to recognize and understand many levels of mathematics. You’ll need to be able to understand the following:

• Basic math

• Word problems



Using these levels, guide yourself through simple skills like addition and subtraction, and develop more advanced skills like solving polynomial operations and graphing solutions. Ultimately, you need to be comfortable with equation and applying formulas to mathematical problems at all levels.
