What is on the GED Mathematics Test?

ANSWER: The GED Mathematics Test has two parts. The combined parts take 90 minutes. Each part has 25 questions for a total of 50 questions. Of these, 40 are multiple-choice format and 10 are grid format.

In the grid format, you must record answers on either standard or coordinate plane grids. Understanding this format before you take the test is important. 

Each part of the test includes an equal percentage of questions on:

* Number operations and number sense
* Data analysis, statistics, and probability
* Algebra
* Geometry and measurement

The GED Mathematics Test assesses problem-solving and application skills in the higher levels of math, rather than just whole numbers, fractions, and decimals.

You will have access to a math formulas page for both parts of the test.

For Part I of the Math Test, you may use the Casio fx-260 Solar Scientific Calculator. The calculator is provided to you at the test site. You may not bring your own calculator. Although you are not required to use a calculator, it will help you work faster and possibly more accurately. After you finish Part I, the calculators are collected.

On Part II you may use only paper and pencil for your calculations.

Is attendance mandatory and is it true that I will be terminated from attending the GED class if I miss class just 3 times ... ?

ANSWER: Yes, attendance is mandatory. You cannot learn this material unless you are physically on campus to hear the instructor teach the lesson plans. Knowledge takes understanding what it is you've learned.  Receiving and hearing from the instructor is the only way you are assured that you will understand the wealth of knowledge in the materials you receive. 

Strike 1, Strike 2, and Strike 3 you're out! Just like it is in Baseball, if you miss the class 3 times, you will be terminated from attending the class. Strict attendance will be maintained. If you are serious about this class and receiving your GED, then you will be serious about attending this class.

Are Math and Science all that I will learn out of this class?

ANSWER: No, this is not all that you will learn. Math and Science are just the subject matters. In order to absorb and comprehend this knowledge and apply it on GED testing day, there are a host of other things students typically have to deal with. Sometimes students are so engrossed (into) these other things that it severely hampers and affects their ability to concentrate on GED materials and the learning experience.  Life challenges, studying habits, as well as test taking skills and preparation (rest, being on time, attitude) are just a few of the things you will be learning in addition to the Math and Science subject matters..
