For Fun: Math Test for Journalists

Math Competency Test for Journalists

 Allergic to math? I have bad news for you: Reporters and editors use math all the time – not only to verify the calculations in the school budget, but also to figure out percentages, ratios, probabilities, square-footage costs and all sorts of other handy references.

 You might have been attracted to journalism primarily because you think you lack the gene for doing math. If so, try this timed quiz from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Visualize each problem, then choose the answer. You may be surprised at how well you do when you give yourself a bit of thinking time. – Holly
