GED Math and Science Readiness Course

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.


An in depth look at what the GED Math and Science Readiness Course will Cover can be found here:


Class Requirements


Students will need to be able to access google classroom for additional practice and resources I supply.


Class Supplies


No physical supplies are needed apart from a computer.

Are there any tests? Will there will be homework?

No tests within the class, however there will be knowledge checks over various topics to reinforce understanding. Homework will be supplied to reinforce understanding; up to each student to complete.

Is this class fun?

I promise to make this class as fun and entertaining as I can! It is fun content so I think so!

How long will this class be? How many sessions per week?

This class will take 1 Quarter to complete: 2 sessions per week ;22 sessions which are 3 hours a piece, a total of 66 hours.

How is this class different from your Math or Science Class

This class is a combination class which will require more of a weekly time commitment then the individual classes.

No Schedules Currently Available.
