Get ready to create your own path to GED Math success!  Our course will prepare you take the Mathematics portion of the GED exam with a study plan to fit your needs.  This GED math review course will provide several resources from strategies, review of materials, test-taking tips, practice exercises, and exams. 

* You have 4 weeks to complete this course from date of your enrollment.

** Course Subject to Change.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Identify the basic mathematical operations in working with whole numbers
  • List the strategies to help you work with fractions and decimals
  • Identify how to measure and convert within the metric system
  • Recall ways to work with basic algebra

GED® Math Test Preparation Module 1
Working with Whole Numbers

Most of us take whole numbers for granted.  Whole numbers help us in daily activities. We wouldn’t be able to locate specific houses, keep track of how many oranges we have, budget our checkbooks and figure out basic word problems.  Module 1 will review the basic mathematical operations in working with whole numbers.

  • Basic Operations
  • Properties of Numbers
  • Order of Operations
  • Five Steps to Solve Word Problems
  • Scientific Notation with Large Numbers

GED® Math Test Preparation Module 2
Working with Fractions and Decimals

Decimals, Fractions, and Percentages are just different ways of showing the same value. Planning and building a house requires lots of calculations with fractions and decimals.  You used them in everyday situations, like cooking and figuring gas mileage.  Module two will give simple strategies to help any student learn how to work with fractions and decimals.

  • Understanding Fractions
  • Adding, Subtracting, Multiplying, and Dividing Fractions
  • Changing Fractions to Decimals and Decimals to Fractions
  • Scientific Notation with Small Numbers
  • Ratios and Proportions

GED® Math Test Preparation Module 3
Metric Measurement

With an understanding of metric measurement, you can measure nearly anything in the world!  Throughout module three, we will take a look at how to measure and convert within the metric system. We will also look at geometric shapes and will share tips on how to easily find area, perimeter, circumference and volume.

  • Customary and Metric Measures
  • Converting Measurements
  • Graphs and Tables
  • Common Geometric Shapes
  • Area, Perimeter, Circumference, and Volume

GED® Math Test Preparation Module 4
Algebraic Expressions

Module four will help anyone understand how to work with basic algebra.  We will review key definitions and phrases used and also look at the order of operations.  Module four will also touch on basic geometry problems.  We will share tips and tricks about how to remember the different steps in solving expressions and problems.

  • Working with Signed Numbers
  • Simplifying and Writing Algebraic Expressions
  • Solving One-Step or longer Equations
  • Solving Inequalities
  • Using Algebra to Solve Word and Geometry Problems
