Im about to take my math test,I am horrible in math.right now I am working on word probloms.How do I know if these word probloms are asking me to subtract,divide,multiply or add.please help.

Hey, I passed this comment on to Curtis, who knows a lot more about math than me. He’s got an answer at http://www.passged.com/student_blogs/curtis/2009/01/22/ged-math-word-problems/

Hi GED help,

I need help with writing an eassay, but don’t know where to go or who to ask to help check my work so I can get it right. I haven’t even wrote one, because I feel it don’t matter, there’s nobody to check it anyway.

I’m pretty good in math except when it comes to word problems any advice?

Hey, Connie! Do please send me your practice essays, and I’ll take a look and give you some feedback to help you learn. You’re not alone! And it’s not as hard as it might seem. Take a shot at it!

Plus, I wanted to say, there’s a LOT you can do on your own. You’ll actually learn more trying to figure things out for yourself, actively, than you do sometimes with a teacher. The problem is being motivated to sit down and figure it all out. I know it’s hard! But do give it a try. And then send me your results, and we’ll get some work on it together. Let me know what you think of your essay, too… that will help your self-evaluation skills (which you’ll need during the GED essay test!)

I’ve passed your math question on to Curtis.

my son has diabetes, and fears the amount of time one is required to spend taking the full ged test, will be too much for him.Is there any provisions concerning people who have illnesses?

Great question, Mari. First of all, in most places you don’t need to take all five tests at once. You can usually spread them out over several weeks.

Second, the answer is yes! You can request special accommodations for illnesses or learning disabilities, including extra time or frequent breaks. You can find out more information here: http://www.acenet.edu/Content/NavigationMenu/ged/test/Take/Accommodations_Disab.htm

The best thing to do is call your local test center. Find out about spreading the test out over several days and about making accommodations for your son. You can find your local test center here: http://www.passged.com/test_state.php

Hi GED help,I have been working on my Ged for a few monthes now,and I have took all my test’s and past them,the only one I have left is my worst subject and that’s math,I have been working on that for a month now and Im so over wellmed,I feel like Im not doing so good on fractions,or story probloms and I know there is alot in the test,I cant tell if the story probloms are asking me to divide,or multiply,or both I get really confused on all that,my test is in 2 weeks,Can you help me?p.s thank you for the help on my writting essay,I scored a 510,

Tanya, I mainly help with writing, but I think you ought to check out Curtis’s blog. He’s real good at math. It’s at: http://www.passged.com/student_blogs/curtis/

You can write him with any problem you’re having trouble with and he’ll help you out. You can email curtis@passged.com, or comment at his blog. But here’s some good posts to look at:

For fractions, this link’ll show you all his fraction posts:

http://www.passged.com/student_blogs/curtis/category/fractions/

Another thing to keep in mind is, if fractions give you trouble, try changing them to decimals to work with, to see if that helps! I’d much rather use decimals than fractions any time!

For the word problems (story problems), this link will show you all his posts:

Lots of people have trouble with these! The big thing that helps me out, is to really think of what multiplication and division mean. Multiplication means you’ve got a bunch of copies of something. So, 8 times 7 means having eight 7’s, like if you made 8 copies of a 7-sheet report. It’s like 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 … 7 eight times. So, when something repeats, like 12 car payments of $250, that’s multiplication. It’s repeating the $250 12 times. Yikes! And division, you’re dividing something big up. Like a pizza cut into 8 slices is the pizza DIVIDED by 8. So, when you’ve got to cut something up into equal pieces, you divide… like if you’re going 120 miles and get 30 miles a gallon, how much gas do you use? You’ve got to “cut up” the 120 miles into 30-mile pieces. How many 30 mile pieces do you get (each one uses a gallon of gas)? You divide 120 by 30, to get 4… 4 gallons. I’m pretty sure Curtis will explain it better!

Don’t feel overwhelmed. You can do this. It’s only one test to go!!!

GED Help,

Is it acceptable to print your essay rather than write in cursive?

Thank you

i am getting ready to take my GED and i was wondering if you have to do it on paper are you allowed to do it in manuscript rather than cursive…? please help! i really suck at cursive because i am Homeschooled and I’ve never really had to do it all that often. my hand also gets tired very quickly using cursive due to a type or carple tunnel. (sorry if i spelled that wrong, lol)… any help you could give me would be appreciated! thanks…

Hi,can you send writing samples?

Hi Gustavo, did you want to send writing samples to me? You can always post your writing here on this board and I’ll take a look at it and see if I can help you.

You can keep an eye on my blog if you want to see examples of writing. Here’s a couple sites that have full essay examples too. I like the first one best. The second one is a little repetitive, but it’s a good example of how to structure your essay.
