Not a child genius? Not a problem. My name is Corey and Iâ€™m here to guide you through an interactive course on quantitative problem solving for mastering the math section of the GRE and GMAT exams. These problems are not duplicates of the long, tedious, subpar GRE and GMAT course books that you've already purchased (such as the Barron's or Manhattan series which deviate from the actual GRE given by ETS and assume that you have infinite preparation time to work through their long lists of questions), so you will be getting brand new problems modeled after REAL GRE and GMAT questions that will challenge you in a unique way. This course is vitally important for anyone planning to apply to most graduate programs and the GRE and GMAT math questions come fully annotated solutions. This course is also ideal for high school students preparing for the SAT, as many of the harder math questions on the SAT will seem simple after mastering these questions. Feel free to preview sample solutions so that you have an idea of what to expect in the rest of the course. Thank you for your time and I look forward to helping you maximize your math proficiency.
Feel free submit questions through the course or directly to my email (hokiesalum[AT_symbol]]gmail[DOT]com ; include Udemy in the subject line). I want to do my best to make sure that you succeed! :)

Math Intro 

Section 2: Teaching Lectures  
Lecture 2  05:40  
This lecture will cover the derivation of the formulas for permutations and combinations. Permutations represent selecting objects from a set of objects and the order of selection IS important. Combinations represent selecting objects from a set of objects and the order of selection is NOT important. n Permutation x = n! / (nx)! n Choose x = n! / ( (nx)! * x! )

Prime factorization is when you split a number into its prime factors. A prime number is a number that is only divisible by 1 and itself. 2 is defined as the first prime number. The factors of a number are the numbers that evenly divide into that number. For example, the factors of 10 are 1, 2, 5, and 10. The prime factorization can be used to find the greatest common factor (GCF) or the least common multiple (LCM) of two or more numbers. The GCF can be used to simplify fractions. The LCM can be used to find a common denominator to add or subtract fractions. 

Lecture 4  06:33  
The most important exponent rules are covered in this lecture. The most important rules are: 

Lecture 5  05:43  
Combined rate / work problems are used to add or subtract the rates of different people when they are doing the same task. Remember that when you add or subtract the fractions, the time component has to be in the denominator, on the bottom. For example, 5 miles per hour + 10 miles per hour = 15 miles per hour. Do NOT do: 1 hour per 5 miles + 1 hour per 10 miles = 3 hours per 15 miles. 

Lecture 6  10:15  
This lecture covers the most important subtopics for dealing with triangles. 45:45:90 triangle = x : x : x*sqrt(2)6. Any side of a triangle must be less than the sum of the other two sides of the triangle and more than the absolute value of the difference between the other two sides of the triangle. 

Lecture 7  07:22  
This lecture covers fraction arithmetic. 1. To multiply fractions, multiply the numerators and denominators straight across. 2. To divide fractions, change the fraction being divided into its inverse, and then multiply the fractions straight across. 3. To add and/or subtract fractions, find the LCM (least common multiple) of the denominators, change all fractions so that they share this LCM, then perform the addition and subtraction operations only on the numerators, not the denominators. 

Lecture 8  06:21  
This lecture will cover divisibility rules. 2: The number is even; the number ends in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8. 3: The sum of the digits of the number is divisible by 3. 4: The last two digits is divisible by 4. 5: The last digit is either 5 or 0. 6: The number is divisible by both 2 and 3. 9: The sum of the digits is divisible by 9. 10: The number ends in 0.

Lecture 11  06:10  
This lecture covers GRE quantitative comparison strategies. 1. Always use your pencil and paper. 2. Add or subtract any number from both sides to simplify the problem. Usually this is useful if you have the same number, variable, or equivalent expression on both sides. 3. Multiply of divide any positive number, variable, or expression from both sides to simplify the problem. Sometimes this is optional, but other times this is essential for solving a problem. Remember that it must be a positive number, variable, or expression, as doing this with a negative number change the problem being asked. 4. Have confidence. The GRE test is also a psychological test of your math ability and confidence level. Not being confident in your math skills leads to double and triple checking answers, thereby taking away time from the other questions in the test.
