a program of theMinnesota Literacy Council3ObjectivesTo articulate the content and format of the Mathematical Reasoning module of the 2014 GED testTo be able to use a few teaching strategies in your classrooms right away to begin the transition to the new test, including ways to use existing materialsTo create a personal PD plan related to the Mathematical Reasoning module4OutlineActivity-Warm Up-Introductions-Objectives-Warm Up Report Out-Assessment Targets Activity-Themes of the Change-Item Samplers-Existing Materials-Wrap Up: Personal PD Plan5Warm UpWhat does this mean? Interpret this statement in your own words and explain it to everyone at your table.Does this concept connect with any math topics that you currently teach? Which topics?

Purpose 1: To demonstrate that it is possible to do everything that is on the GED 2014 Mathematical Reasoning module.Purpose 2: To expose everyone to the new content so that teachers will be more prepared to advocate for content knowledge refreshers at a later date.678Compare and ContrastPersonallydo 2002 PLUSReframing what we are ALREADY doing at EACH levelPizza model 10 minutesWhat is New on the 2014 GED test?Q.1.d Identify absolute value of a rational number as its distance from 0 on the number line and determine the distance between two rational numbers on the number line, including using the absolute value of their differenceQ.2.d Determine when a numerical expression is undefinedA.1.f Factor polynomial expressionsA.3.a Solve linear inequalities in one variable with rational number coefficientsA.3.b Identify or graph the solution to a one variable linear inequality on a number lineA.3.c Solve real-world problems involving inequalitiesA.3.d Write linear inequalities in one variable to represent contextA.7.b Represent or identify a function in a table or graph as having exactly one output (one element in the range) for each input (each element in the domain).

9Compare and ContrastPersonally, we recommend just reframing what we are already doing at each level.2002+10Some NEW TOOLSOn screen calculator: TI 30XSCalculator reference sheetFormula sheetPersonal dry erase boards

1112Assessment Target ActivityDirections: Look at the 15 assessment targets of the 2014 GED Mathematical Reasoning module. Highlight trouble spots or confusing words in small groups.After 5 minutes, each table will report out to Amy and Lindsey, who will take notes to inform future content-based PD.

Purpose: To FIND trouble areas, not to answer content questions
