GED Mathematical Reasoning Curriculum

GED Mathematical Reasoning Curriculum

The unit features multiple lessons divided into four units which represent the mathematical knowledge covered in the GED Math subject test (including number sense, geometric and algebraic thinking, and data measurement and analysis).  Lessons include examples, demonstrations and some videos which aid instruction as well as practice materials for students to complete in class and as homework. The curriculum is designed to present GED-level math both conceptually and contextually; basic math is not included.

Each lesson is aligned with the College and Career Readiness Standards and incorporates transitions skills as developed in Hamline's ABE Teaching and Learning Advancement System (ATLAS)' Academic, Career & Employability Skills (ACES) framework.

Textbooks required for this curriculum: Steck-Vaughn GED Mathematical Reasoning Student Book; Steck-Vaughn GED Mathematical Reasoning Workbook

Lessons undergo revision and may occasionally be updated or replaced online.  More lessons coming soon!
