Using the GED Formula Sheet
Algebraic Short Cuts
You don't have to memorize complicated mathematical processes if you've got the algebra skills necessary to use the formula sheet. Just substitute in the known values and you're off and running letting the algebra guide you.
You will have a GED formula sheet for your math test, along with a TI-30XS calculator. I recommend that you use both as you follow along with this lesson. You'll practice:
Choosing the correct formula
Substituting in the known values
Solving for the unknown variable
Using your TI-30XS calculator, rounding answers, and choosing the correct unit
