As an aspiring nurse, you are required to understand critical mathematical equations on the job. That is why it is so crucial that you are preparing for the TEAS Math section extensively. Call our team here at Adkins Academy today to learn more about how our TEAS test prep can help you ace the exam's math section!


TEAS VI Math Test Prep Course


On the Math portion of the TEAS exam, you will encounter 36 multiple-choice questions. You will have 54 minutes to complete the Math section, which works out to about 90 seconds per question. This means you must comprehend what the question is asking, set up the proper way to solve the problem and arrive at the correct response all in under two minutes. Remember, you are only permitted a four-function calculator for this exam portion, so proper test preparation is vital!


On the exam, content is split into Measurement and Data, and Number and Algebra. Of these two areas, the bulk of questions will come from the Number and Algebra content area. 


Tips For Success


Here at Adkins Academy, we want all of our students to succeed on their TEAS exam. However, we also know that success does not come entirely from memorization of material. Here are some essential test-taking tips to utilize during your studies.


Before you look at the response options provided, you should always work out the math problem yourself and come up with your answer. If your answer matches one of the answer choices, you are in good shape. However, if time allows, you should always double-check your work. The TEAS loves to throw in tricky answer choices to stump you. That is why it is essential to work it out yourself and see if the answer is available.


It is important to remember the Math section of the TEAS is multiple-choice, meaning if you can eliminate even one wrong answer, your chances of answering the question correctly significantly increase. Therefore, if you are stuck on a problem, you should always seek to cross out incorrect answers.


When you study with our team here at Adkins Academy for the TEAS exam, you can walk away prepared and ready for success. If you want to learn more about what makes our TEAS test preparation program different, call us today.


What is Considered a Passing Score?


Each nursing school individually decides what score constitutes a "pass." However, most programs want to see scores at least in the 60% - 70% range. Having a score in a higher range increases your chances of acceptance at the school of your choice!


Skills To Remember


To master the Math portion of the TEAS, you should be very comfortable with all of these items:

  • Identifying the relationship between variables

  • Interpreting and evaluating data from tables, charts, graphs, and other visualizations

  • Translating phrases into equations, expressions, and inequalities

  • Converting percentages, decimals, and fractions

  • Using estimation techniques to solve real-world problems

  • Ordering and comparing rational numbers


The Math portion of the TEAS VI is written to reflect the medical field's ever-evolving needs, especially your understanding of conversions now (drug calculations later). You will be primarily required in this portion of the TEAS 6 test to answer questions regarding Measurements and Data, as well as Numbers and Algebra, and some Geometry.


You will have access to a TEAS-provided simple four-function calculator for this portion of the exam. However, I don't think that this will be as easy as punching numbers into the calculator. Expect these TEAS questions to come in various formats such as equations, word problems, proportionalities, geometric shapes, and statements that you will have first to decode, formulate a plan of action, and then answer. Determining what is being required of you is often the most challenging part of the question.


This ensures that all potential nurses can apply these concepts effectively as they relate to the nursing field. You will undoubtedly encounter countless challenges as a nurse. Your nursing school wants to know that you can think on your feet quickly and effectively. You will need to do more than memorize the equations. You will need to dig into the hows and whys of the word problems, which The Adkins Academy TEAS Math Review can help you do. After all, when you are a nurse, there won't be a cheat sheet.
