Scope of P2GMath.com HSE Units of Study
Using DRC-CTB’s TASC Test and Item Specifications document, and the associated College and Career Readiness for Adult Education (CCR-AE) Standards, the scope of the math content outlined on P2Gmath.com is organized under the five domain headings of: Number and Quantity; Algebra; Functions; Geometry; and Statistics and Probability. Within those domains, a total of twelve sub-domains were created in order to organize the expansive math content into smaller units of study. If you click below you will find the over-arching focus of each unit described.
The distinction made between Algebra and Functions is of particular note. These two areas of mathematics are often inextricably linked, intertwined, and difficult to separate. As a result, similar math concepts are repeated throughout the Algebra and Functions units. The primary distinction is that the Algebra units focus on solving equations, algebraic manipulation of terms, and inverse operations to rewrite expressions. Whereas, the functions units focus on evaluating functions given input values, as well as understanding functions in the context of a problem.
Each unit outlined below is designed to stand alone. With that in mind, the list is not suggestive of any particular order, however it does follow that within a domain, such as Algebra, A2 would be taught after A1. The sequence of the units is up to the discretion of the teacher. One could teach NQ1, F1, A1, A2, F2, and then A3, or A1, A2, A3, F1, and then F2. Teachers are encouraged to tailor the sequence of units to their style and to the ability of each class or student.
