Common Sense & Estimation
Not So Common
For some reason, students seem to lose all their common sense once faced with a math problem. You need strong skills of estimating and evaluating answers using common sense in order to attack GED® style word problems.
STEP 1: WATCH THE VIRTUAL CLASS VIDEO AND TAKE NOTES
Make sure to note the following:
Most of the math questions on the GED® test are multiple choice. This is great news! Students can use common sense to rule out illogical answers and estimation to narrow down answer choices. These skills are especially useful if you find yourself running out of time, unable to complete all the necessary calculations.
