EMPower Series

The EMPower set of numeracy texts will help prepare students for the 2014 GED test. You will need to buy a student book and a teacher book for your class, but after that it is possible to copy pages of the student book for classroom use. The books contain activities that fit well with MNI (MN Numeracy Initiative) principles, but not necessarily GED-specific practice questions. If you want to try one, I recommend that you start with Seeking Patterns, Building Rules (Algebraic Thinking) because it offers opportunities for exploration of and practice with functions in several forms.
