Ch 5: HSPT Test: Understanding Integers

About This Chapter

Let us help you review the math skills needed to excel on the High School Placement Test (HSPT). Study integers and how to use them in various types of equations through engaging video lessons and corresponding quizzes.

HSPT: Understanding Integers - Chapter Summary

This chapter walks you through different types of integers and how to solve equations with them as you prepare for the HSPT test. The video lessons cover subjects such as negative and positive integers, operations with integers and simplifying expressions with integers. Once you complete these lessons, you should be able to:

  • Define and add positive and negative integers
  • Calculate subtraction equations with one- and two-digit integers
  • Explain the rules used to multiply and divide integers
  • Simplify expressions with integers
  • Find the greatest common factor and least common multiple

Short, engaging video lessons make the material fun and interesting, and you can revisit key points using the video tags in the timeline. Self-assessment quizzes follow each lesson, and our knowledgeable instructors are available to answer any question your child may have.
