Day 28/67 of GED in 5 Months, Equitable Triangles, and Adulting Education

The skill of translating ideas into other terms, or of translating mathematical terms into social ideas, is a crucial part of Adult citizenship responsibility,  and is thus part of any democracy movement.

Understanding sets of power relationships is also a crucial part of being an Adult in a democratic society.  Mathematics helps with that, as does reading novels, from your local public librarians list of recommendations!

 Start of week 8/18

From the reading, what does this sentence mean to you?

“Women and girls represent half of the world’s population and, therefore, also half of its potential.”

So, since students were using a set of Master the HiSET books in the classroom, if you cannot get an online version of a larger GED/HiSET prep book with a summary of all of the  material tested in the 5 subject areas, please try looking for a set of open High School text books and then cross-reference that with the free practice tests for the GED and HiSET exams.  Back in 2016, I prepared for the Secondary mathematics (middle school and high school level) Praxis exams using online texts books, so I know that a bit of digging will reveal a variety of good open source text books online across grade levels.

Just let me know if you need help finding resources, and I’ll find something.

(5 month GED lesson 22 of 67 plans…), and

Babylon 5 review posts, and my historical fiction serial Ann&Anna posts show how story inspires learning…

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.

Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.
