## Math

Here are some materials to help you review material that you will find on the Virginia Placement Test – Math. The material is arranged by the topics covered in the 10 units of our Developmental Math Program. You will find a practice test for each of the units. Take the practice test for each of the units. If you don’t get at least an 80%, look at the websites listed under each unit. The websites will provide instruction on those topics. Some of the websites even have some problems for you to solve.

The Virginia Community College System (VCCS) also has a website that you may find helpful. Go to: http://vccsblogs.com/math/ This website is a work in progress. Right now you will find materials to prepare you for Unit 0, Unit 1, Unit 2 and Unit 3.
