Math in Daily Life:



Probability and Statistics


The GED is now more life and work oriented.  The math problems are word problems, so it is important to understand the language of math and how we use it every day.

This assignment asks you to explore the purpose of math, its universal language and to look at how statistics affect our decisions.  There is a quiz to complete at the end.
