At the present time we operate a full time GED lab. The clients that we serve have been removed from the traditional school setting for some time. We are currently running into tons of basic skills deficiencies. Especially in the math areas. Any help would be great.
GED students frequently need to review many concepts that they were previously taught. Math concepts build upon each other, so it is important to make sure than a student understands them all before proceeding.
Fraction Shape-Up and Pre-Algebra Shape-Up are excellent programs to help older students overcome basic skills deficits. They are step-by-step tutorials that help students master specific skills. Math concepts are broken down to understandable steps, then students are given the chance to apply what they have just learned.
