HOW TO USE THE CRASH COURSE

Don't Panic! You're NOT supposed to do it all!

The GED Math Crash Course has more resources than any one student would ever need. It was designed with the needs of many different types of students in mind, from those who just need a quick review to those who have struggled mightily with math for years and years. Those students have very different needs.

Check out the video for a quick tour and basic instructions for how to use this website.

NEW AND STRUGGLING STUDENTS

Work Lesson by Lesson:

  1. Start with Unit 0: Crucial GED Basics

  2. On each lesson page, do the following:

    • Watch the virtual class video and take notes

    • Complete at least ONE level of practice, whichever level you're at.

    • Don't rush. Understanding a few units deeply is better than rushing through the material every single time.

  3. After finishing Unit 1, take a GED Ready test.

    • 150 or more? Take your GED test

    • Below 150? Try Unit 2, 3, 4 or 5 (order doesn't matter after Unit 1), then take another Ready test. Keep working this way- a unit, a Ready test, a unit, a Ready test until you are scoring 150+.

RETURNING OR REVIEW STUDENTS

TRY A QUICK REVIEW:

Are you a student who has learned algebra before, has been studying GED math for a while, is scoring in the 142-144 range, or just needs a quick refresher of what might show up on the test?

A quick review of the math "biggies" might be all you need to pass your test.

HAPPY LEARNING!
