Math Test for Journalists


How much do you know about the math that makes the news? Journalists have to deal accurately and clearly with numbers all the time. Take this test to check your skills. After the quiz, you'll have a better understanding of the need for math skills in careers that are not considered typically math-centered. You should also have a greater appreciation of how writers can use numbers effectively to make a point, an awareness you can use to improve your writing as well as your reading of the news.
