MATEMATIKO MATH PRACTICE PROGRAM

FOR MATH PREPARATION CLASSES -- Middle School, GED, HiSET, TASC, ASVAB

The three Mathematics books listed below are published by McGraw Hill. They are very good, but require a considerable amount of self discipline for students who are planning to work independently. Unless a student has high-level math skills, I suggest that he or she start with the basic book and then proceed to the Achieve textbook and the TASC Exercise Book. I also suggest that all TASC test candidates practice using the TI-30XS calculator. An electronic version is used with the TASC test and is also listed below.

TI-30XS MultiView Calculator

Since the TI_30XS is used on the paper version of the TASC test and an electronic version of this nifty calculator is used on the electronic version of the TASC test, it makes sense to practice with it before taking the test. Although it is not very difficult to use, some of the features are different from some other calculators.

Common Core Basics published by McGraw Hill (formerly Contemporary)

This book offers a comprehensive review of math topics found in all three high school equivalency tests given in the United States (GED, HiSET, and TASC). It covers whole numbers, decimals, fractions, integers, expressions and equations, linear equations and functions, ratios-proportions-percents, exponents-roots, data, probability, measurement, and geometry.

Common Core Achieve: Mathematics published by McGraw Hill (formerly Contemporary)

This book is also a comprehensive textbook at a slightly higher
level than the basic book listed above.

This book offers a review of Number Sense and operations; Ratio,
Proportion, and Probability; Linear Equations and
Inequalities; Polynomials and Rational Expressions; Linear Equations
in the Coordinate Plane; Functions; Geometry & Measurement; Data
Analysis

The beauty of the book is that a companion volume is available (listed below) that has a chapter by chapter correlation. That means you study the information given in this book and do the exercises in the GED book. For example the Common Core Achieve book has a lesson explaining how to compute with powers and roots. The book below offers more practice to help you master the TASC test.

Exercise Book for TASC Test: Mathematics: Common Core Achieve published by McGraw Hill (formerly Contemporary)

This is a companion volume that goes with the Common Core Achieve book listed above.

This book offers a review of Number Sense and operations; Ratio, Proportion, and Probability; Linear Equations and Inequalities; Polynomials and Rational Expressions; Linear Equations in the Coordinate Plane; Functions; Geometry & Measurement; Data Analysis

The book is a comprehensive book covering all the TASC modules.

McGraw Hill Education TASC: The Official Guide to the test.

The main disadvantage of this book is that it covers all subjects. It therefore does not cover the material in the detail that individual books listed above would.

The major advantage is that it is published by the publishers of the actual test.
