**The Three Things You MUST Know to Pass the PRAXIS CORE**

- 1.) Basic Mathematical Formulas. The math section of the PRAXIS CORE covers five basic mathematical formulas: slope-intercept form, Pythagorean Theorem, perimeter, area, and volume of basic shapes (rectangles, circles, cylinders, prisms).
- 2.) Constructed Response Answers.
- 3.) Fundamental Grammar.

The basic content of the **Praxis** Core is — in theory — not so **hard**. The Core Reading, Core Writing, and Core **Math** tests are designed to **test** the academic skills you were taught in middle school and high school.
