Our HSE-Prep class covers reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. Study guides and materials are provided for each student in each area of study. Classes will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and center on learning how to think critically, calculate, convert units, and complete various problems.
In the math portion, students will be asked to find mean, use functions, find integer, solving polynomial equations, etc. Arming students with mathematical terminology and basic operation will increase their chances of understanding the math concept they need to use to solve the problem.
During the reading portion of TASC, students will be asked to identify verbs, nouns, adjectives, etc. Having an understanding of the various parts of speech will also aid students for their composition of their essay. Understanding how to read story problems will greatly help students solve problems.
Being able to understand each shape, and how to calculate the measurement of each shape is key to the math portion of the TASC. Nearly every math problem posed in the TASC involves an equation. Giving students a breakdown on how to solve equations, how to write/read equations, and what the alphabet in math really means.
Students will need an understanding on how to read charts and graphs to answer questions involving math, science, and social studies. There are a few maps illustrated throughout the TASC. To be able to answer the questions, it is imperative to understand the components of map reading, such as the key.
