# HSPT Mathematics Practice Questions

The HSPT Mathematics subtest covers two basic types of questions: Concepts and Problem Solving. These questions are drawn from arithmetic, elementary algebra, and basic geometry.

• Concepts – understanding and applying terminology and rules of math, elementary algebra, and basic geometry. These questions tend to be more direct, short, and focus on a single mathematical concept.
• Problem Solving – solving quantitative problems efficiently and accurately. These questions tend to be longer and resemble a “story problem” type format.
