About ISEE Math Section
The ISEE Math section assesses mathematical skills learned from the start of a student’s schooling. All of the questions in both of the ISEE Math sections, Quantitative Reasoning and Mathematics Achievements, are associated with the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). The following NCTM branches are used as the basis for the ISEE Mathematics Achievement section:
- Numbers and Operations
- Algebra
- Geometry
- Measurement
- Data Analysis & Probability
- Problem Solving
Below, you can see an example of an ISEE Math question from an Upper Level ISEE test:
Answer: B (4)
This section, unlike the ISEE Quantitative Reasoning section, may actually require students to perform calculations in order to solve problems. Calculators and scratch paper are not permitted on the test. Student are permitted to write in the test booklet.

ISEE Tips - Math Achievement
Hint: Make sure to read the whole question and examine any related material (such as graphic images) and try to calculate the problem and determine the answer before looking at the answer choices.
Hint: The level of math on the ISEE Mathematics Achievement section may be a higher level of math that you have not yet learned. If you come across a question that you do not understand, guess an answer and continue. If you somewhat understand the question, mark it and come back to it if you have time.
Hint: Many of the wrong answer choices reflect common mistakes. Read each question carefully and more than one time. Remember to CHECK YOUR WORK!
