MATEMATIKO MATH PRACTICE PROGRAM

FOR MATH PREPARATION CLASSES -- Middle School, GED, HiSET, TASC, ASVAB

TI-30XS MultiView Calculator

Since an electronic version of this nifty calculator is used on the GED test, it makes sense to practice with it before taking the test. Although it is not very difficult to use, some of the features are different from some other calculators.

The three mathematics books listed below are published by McGraw Hill. They are very good, but require a considerable amount of self discipline for students who are planning to work independently. Unless a student has high-level math skills, I suggest that he or she start with the basic book and then proceed to the Achieve textbook and the GED Exercise Book. I also suggest that all GED test candidates practice using the TI-30XS calculator. An electronic version is used with the GED test and is also listed below.

There are three books for each of the subtests in the GED test. Basics, achieve, and practice. Only the math books are listed here, but all are available. Below these books are listed composite books. Those are books that include all the subjects. The composite books are probably best for most students. The individual subject books are for those students who want to go into the subject in more detail.

Common Core Basics published by McGraw Hill (formerly Contemporary)

This book offers a comprehensive review of math topics found in all three high school equivalency tests given in the United States (GED, HiSET, and TASC). It covers whole numbers, decimals, fractions, integers, expressions and equations, linear equations and functions, ratios-proportions-percents, exponents-roots, data, probability, measurement, and geometry.

Common Core Achieve: Mathematics published by McGraw Hill (formerly Contemporary)

This book is also a comprehensive textbook at a slightly higher
level than the basic book listed above.

This book offers a review of Number Sense and operations; Ratio,
Proportion, and Probability; Linear Equations and
Inequalities; Polynomials and Rational Expressions; Linear Equations
in the Coordinate Plane; Functions; Geometry & Measurement; Data
Analysis

The beauty of the book is that a companion volume is available (listed below) that has a chapter by chapter correlation. That means you study the information given in this book and do the exercises in the GED book. For example the Common Core Achieve book has a lesson explaining how to compute with powers and roots. The book below offers more practice to help you master the GED test.

Exercise Book for GED Test: Mathematics: Common Core Achieve published by McGraw Hill (formerly Contemporary)

This is a companion volume that goes with the Common Core Achieve book listed above.

This book offers a review of Number Sense and operations; Ratio, Proportion, and Probability; Linear Equations and Inequalities; Polynomials and Rational Expressions; Linear Equations in the Coordinate Plane; Functions; Geometry & Measurement; Data Analysis

The following book is a composite book for all GED subjects. It is good for those students who have good scholastic ability and need an overview of the GED test.

Cracking the GED published by Princeton Review

Kaplan’s GED Test seems to be a comprehensive review of all five tests. The math section is covered in almost 200 pages. It should not be difficult for the average high school math students. It appears to cover just about all the topics that will be found in the GED math test.
