# ABE 042 ABE High Intermediate Basic Education - Math 4 (1 to 6 credits

Course Description
Designed for students to learn and/or review fractions, decimals, percents, beginning algebra, measurement, and basic geometry math skills in preparation for passing of the GED exam or college entry exam.

Student Outcomes
1. Mathematics
M4.1 Read, write, and interpret a variety of common mathematical information such as
Numbers and number sense: monetary values, extensions of benchmark fractions (1/8, 1/3, 1/5, etc), decimals, and percents (15%, 30%, etc.).
Patterns/Functions/Relationships: patterns and simple formulas (such as d=rt, a=lw); Space/Shape/Measurement: standard units of measurement including fractional units and benchmark angle measurements (90 degrees, 360 degrees, etc), geometric shapes including shapes containing a combination of common shapes, concept of pi, and concept of converting between units of measurement.
Data/Statistics: ways to interpret and represent data (tables and graphs with scaling, basic statistical concepts such as range, mode, mean, and median).
M4.2 Recall and use a good store of mathematical procedures such as estimation, rounding, multiplication and division (with and without use of a calculator), adding and subtracting, multiplying and dividing common fractional amounts and decimals, measure length, weight, area and circumference using tools calibrated to varying degrees of precision and converting units of measurement as appropriate.
M4.3 Evaluate the degree of precision needed for the solution.
M4.4 Define, select and organize a variety of common mathematical data and measure with appropriate tools, describe patterns, and/or use appropriate procedures effectively to solve a problem and verify that the solution is reasonable.
M4.5 Communicate the solution to the problem orally, with visual representations, in writing, by entries in a table or appropriate graph, or with basic statistics (range, mode, mean, median).
4. Goal Setting
G4.1 Monitor progress on educational goals as they relate to their roles as students, workers, citizens, and family members.
