GED Adult Goal 6: Learners will develop an understanding of applied mathematical concepts in arithmetic, algebra, and geometry which require reasoning and problem-solving skills. MATH

 OBJECTIVES EXAMPLES Objective A: Learners will develop an understanding of arithmetic and its applications to real-world problems. Solve problems involving measurement of length, perimeter, area, volume, and time. Solve problems involving calculation of rates such as distance and time and cost and unit. Solve problems involving properties of numbers, exponents, and averages. Solve problems involving percent, proportion, and ratio. Interpret tables, graphs, charts, and statistical data. Objective B: Learners will develop an understanding of algebra and its application. Use algebraic language and symbolism. Understand common axioms and properties governing equations and formulas. Set up and solve equations. Learn concept of factoring. Learn concepts of algebraic fractions. Objective C: Learners will develop an understanding of geometry and its application. Calculate values for angles, line segments, and slopes. Know rectangular coordinates and points of intersection. Find indirect measurements of angles and line segments using similar figures and the Pythagorean Theorem. Objective D: Learners will develop skills using calculators, computers, and other technology for a variety of reasons. * Reflect current practices in business and industry. Select appropriate technology for deserved results. Meet the needs of learning disabled students. Free up time to work on higher-order reasoning and problem- solving skills.
 * Beyond the scope of the current tests of General Educational Development .
