#27 ¾ ¾ ¾ ¾ GED Video Partner Passing the GED Math Test Do not worry about your difficulties in mathematics. I assure you mine are still greater. Albert Einstein TEST OVERVIEW: Time: 90 minutes total; 45 minutes for each of the two parts. The test consists of two parts: Part 1: Calculator Permitted: You will need to read and solve word problems. You must be able to combine your ability to use computational skills with problem solving. 25 questions - approximately 20 multiple choice and approximately five alternative grid formats Use the Casio fx-260 solar powered scientific calculator which will be supplied by the test center 4 major content areas tested: Number Operations and Number Sense--about six of the questions on each part Measurement and Geometry--about six of the questions on each part Data Analysis, Statistics and Probability--about six of the questions on each part Algebra, Functions and Patterns-- about six of the questions on each part ¾ 4 major mathematical skills needed to answer questions: Procedural--choosing the correct method to solve a problem but not having to come up with the correct answer--about 10 of the questions on the whole test Conceptual--knowing and using mathematical principles and ideas--about 15 of the questions on the whole test Application, Modeling, Problem Solving--applying ways and methods to solve problems and judging whether or not an answer is reasonable--about 25 of the problems on the whole test 2
¾ ¾ ¾ Part 2: Calculator Not Permitted: You will need to read and solve word problems. You will not need to complete complex calculations. Many of the questions on Part II can be solved using estimation, number sense, and problem solving strategies 25 questions - approximately 20 multiple choice and approximately five alternative grid formats ¾ 4 major content areas tested: Number Operations and Number Sense--about six of the questions on each part Measurement and Geometry--about six of the questions on each part Data Analysis, Statistics and Probability--about six of the questions on each part Algebra, Functions and Patterns-- about six of the questions on each part ¾ 4 major mathematical skills need to answer questions: Procedural--choosing the correct method to solve a problem but not having to come up with the correct answer--about 10 of the questions on the whole test Conceptual--knowing and using mathematical principles and ideas--about 15 of the questions on the whole test Application, Modeling, Problem Solving--applying ways and methods to solve problems and judging whether or not an answer is reasonable--about 25 of the problems on the whole test SCORING: Part I and Part II are weighted equally. The number of correct answers on each part is combined to find the total number of correct answers.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
