Ch 1: Working With Inequalities

Learn how to work with numerical inequalities and prepare for the mathematical reasoning section of the General Educational Development (GED) exam. This is a comprehensive presentation that includes video tutorials, print-based transcripts and online self-assessment quizzes.

Working with Inequalities - Chapter Summary

The lessons in this chapter are designed to provide you with a step-by-step approach to graphing and solving mathematical inequalities. This is a progressive course of study, where each video tutorial is devoted to a specific application and builds upon the skills you learned in the previous lesson. Chapter content includes topics in:

• Graphing inequalities with one and two variables
• Set notations
• Compound and systems of inequalities
• Graphing inequalities
• Absolute value inequalities
• Writing an inequality based on a word sentence

Each of the lessons in the chapter consist of easy-to-understand graphics and visuals, along with practice problems and self-assessment quizzes that can help you see which areas you might need to review. The questions are presented in the same format as those on the GED test, so there'll be no surprises on exam day.

GED Math Objectives

As a nationally acknowledged equivalency exam, the GED is a 4-part test that is based upon the Common Core State Standards for high school students up to and including grade 12. The mathematical reasoning portion will test your knowledge of algebraic and quantitative problem solving and will take a maximum of 90 minutes to finish. Roughly 55% of the test consists of algebra problems, with the remaining questions devoted to quantitative reasoning. The video tutorials in this chapter will cover all of the fundamental concepts and procedures found on the actual exam. Main learning objectives include:

• Define a mathematical inequality
• Work with absolute value, compound and systems of inequalities
• Translate number sentences to inequalities
• Solve and graph inequalities

The 2-part, mathematical reasoning portion of the GED determines your readiness for college or a career as well as your ability to work with numerical methods and models. The exam is taken on a computer and includes the use of an on-screen, scientific calculator during the first part of the test.
