Math can be a tough topic for students, but you don’t need a “math brain” to be able to pass the GED math test, just the right preparation and materials.
The math section of the GED includes four different topics:
- Basic math
- Basic algebra
- Graphs and functions
You should be familiar with math concepts, measurements, equations, and applying math concepts to solve real-life problems. However, you will not have to memorize formulas and you will be allowed a calculator for a section.
Format of the GED Math Test
There are two parts to the math test and the calculator will be provided for the second part. The total testing time is 115 minutes, with a short break between sections. You will have access to a calculator reference sheet and math formula sheet.
The question types differ but consist of multiple-choice, drag and drop, fill-in-the-blank, select an area and drop down.
How to Prepare
If you need more practice, GED Flash offers thousands of interactive GED math questions that you can access anytime, anywhere.
