GED Math Chapter 11: Geometry Lesson 2

OK, welcome to lesson 2 the topic is area.  Knowing how to find the area and volume of basic figures is a critical skill for the GED.  As long as you know the formulas I don’t think you will have a problem learning the material.  One thing I want you to keep in mind is area and volume have different units of measure.  Knowing the correct units of measure is important to identifying a correct solution so pay special attention to the units I use in the lesson.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• the units of measure for area
• the area formulas for basic figures

Chapter 11 Lesson 2

Area of Basic Figures

Do you have a date and location to take the GED? If not, you need to call your local school district or community college to find out.

Well done you finished lesson 2 on area.  You should be able to:

  • Find the area of basic figures
  • Know how to use all the area formulas
  • Understand the units of measure for area

Now that you understand basic area we can continue to learn about surface area.

Hello John, I am writing to thank you. During the Summer I took and passed all of my GED courses with the exception of the Math test. I found your free math course online and listened and watched all of the videos, trying to educate myself utilizing the tools and tips that you provided. I have to admit, it was very overwhelming and at times I felt as though I was being taught in a foreign language. I scheduled my re-test earlier this week and I passed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It took me 22 years to feel confident enough to achieve this goal and I am forever grateful to you for offering this information online. You are heaven sent! Now I can apply for better paying jobs and attend college. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping others change their lives for the better!!” Sincerely, Alicia
