Biochemistry does have some very basic math, but it's 1st grade level adding and subtracting.
If I remember right, TEAS does not have anything that goes beyond basic arithmetic. There are questions with fractions and conversion between different measuring systems (eg. Fahrenheit and Celcius).
In both cases, it's nothing beyond what you'd be expected to use in nursing school and on the job as a nurse. Math is a part of being a nurse - dosage calculation and so on. Rarely anything particularly difficult, but accuracy can be a life or death issue. So if you're feeling uncomfortable with your math skills, I'd encourage practicing that before attempting the TEAS. Get a dosage calculation workbook, which will give you a good idea of the type of math needed on the job, or work through the arithmetic lessons on Khan Academy. Plus, that'll help you maximize your score on the TEAS, which is helpful when applying to programs where TEAS scores is taken into account in the admissions process.
