## GRE Math Topics and Hints

GRE Math: The math part of the GRE General Test is split into four main areas: arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. The arithmetic area covers integers, ordering and the real number line, absolute value, fractions, decimals, exponents, square
roots, and percents. The algebra area covers operations with algebraic expressions, factoring, solving linear equations, translating words into algebraic expressions and applications, inequalities, coordinate geometry, rules of exponents, and solving quadratic
equations. The geometry area covers lines, angles, polygons, triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, and three-dimensional figures. The data analysis area covers measures of central location, measures of dispersion, frequency distributions, counting, permutations,
combinations, probability, and data representation and interpretation. This website can be an invaluable tool if you are a self-taught learner:

Otherwise, I can guide you through the more difficult areas, help summarize key ideas and provide helpful memory tools when faced with confusing topics. My love for math has led me to become a middle school math teacher. My qualifications include getting a 34 on the Math ACT. My BS in Biomedical Engineering included 18 hours of math courses so I’m Highly Qualified to teach math. I have passed the GRE in order for me to begin my Master’s in Math Education. I’ve also taken math courses beyond my undergraduate degree when I was considering getting a Master’s in Math to teach college math. Since then my interest has shifted to teaching computers so I’ve not gotten a second master’s degree besides the one from seminary, MDiv with Biblical Languages. Recently I’ve taught secondary math for 6 of my 8 years of teaching experience. In Mississippi I’m certified to teach math 7th - 12th grade (which includes basic math, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus) so I’m equipped to explain the more difficult concepts and I can review necessary basic math skills for you to be successful.
