Mathematics Level 1 is a broad survey test intended for students who have taken three years of college-preparatory mathematics, including two years of algebra and one year of geometry.
**Anticipated Skills**
You're not expected to have studied every topic on the test, but you should anticipate the following:
◊ Number and Operations ◊ Algebra and Functions ◊ Geometry and Measurement ◊ Data Analysis, Statistics and Probability
**Calculator Use**
It's NOT necessary to use a calculator to solve every question on the Mathematics Level 1 Subject Test, so it's important to know when and how to use one. For about 50-60 percent of the questions, there's no advantage, perhaps even a disadvantage, to using a calculator. For about 40-50 percent of the questions, a calculator may be useful or necessary. If you're comfortable with both a scientific and graphing calculator, you should bring a graphing calculator. A graphing calculator may provide an advantage over a scientific calculator on some questions.
Mathematics Level 2 is a broad survey test intended for students who have taken college-preparatory mathematics for more than three years, including two years of algebra, one year of geometry, and elementary functions (precalculus) and/or trigonometry.

Calculator Use
It's NOT necessary to use a calculator to solve every question on the Mathematics Level 2 Subject Test, so it's important to know when and how to use one. For about 35-40 percent of the questions, there's no advantage, perhaps even a disadvantage, to using a calculator. For about 55-65 percent of the questions, a calculator may be useful or necessary. If you're comfortable with both a scientific and graphing calculator, you should bring a graphing calculator. A graphing calculator may provide an advantage over a scientific calculator on some questions.
