# GED Math and Science Readiness Course

#### Class Description

Although this course will be structured around the criteria needed to pass the GED Math and Science tests, all students interested in learning or refreshing their skills in areas such as Physical Science, Life Science, Zoology, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, and much more are welcome to attend. Students that are attempting the HiSet or other equivalency exams will also benefit from this content.

This class will be academically rigorous, as the end goal upon completion is taking the GED test as a well-prepared student.
