TACHS: Basic Arithmetic Operations Objectives
Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of New York and Diocese of Brooklyn/Queens require that 8th grade students interested in admission take the TACHS test. Students must take the test in November 2015 to gain admission to one of their three schools of choice in the 2016-2017 school year. The exam is broken into four sections that test language, reading, math and ability. Questions on the test are in multiple-choice form.
You can watch the lessons or review full transcripts to make sure you're ready to answer questions related to basic arithmetic operations on the test. Take self-assessment quizzes and a chapter exam to gauge your understanding of the lessons. If you have any questions about lesson topics, submit them to experts ready to offer assistance.
1. How to Perform Addition: Steps & Examples
Addition is one of the basic operations of math. You can say that the whole of mathematics is based on addition. Without addition, we wouldn't have higher math. Watch this video to learn how to add.
2. How to Perform Subtraction: Steps & Examples
Subtraction is one of the basic operations in math. Watch this video lesson to learn how you can view and understand subtraction so that you can easily perform it.
3. How to Perform Multiplication: Steps & Examples
Multiplication, one of the basic operations of math, is important not just in elementary math but also in higher math. Watch this video lesson to learn how you can multiply with ease.
4. How to Multiply Large Numbers: Steps and Examples
After watching this video lesson you will be able to multiply any two numbers together. You will learn how to use your knowledge of multiplying smaller numbers together to multiply larger numbers with ease.
5. How to Perform Division: Steps & Examples
Watch this video lesson to learn how you can divide. Division is one of the basic operations of math. It is one of the fundamental operations that all higher mathematics depends upon.
