- The VPT Math is divided into 10 units, which are each divided into sub-units.*
- To the right, you’ll notice links to each unit. Each unit page has links to problems related to its sub-units.
- You should try each problem; if you get the answer correct and feel confident you can move on to the next unit or sub-unit.
- If you don’t get the answer correct, there are links to resources that can help you with that specific topic. Practice with them until you feel that you can move on.
Below, you will find more information about some of the sites that you will be sent to…look them over so that you’re comfortable with where our links will lead you to.
*Note: At this point, MathSite is a pilot, containing only resources for the first three units of the VPT Math. Let us know what you think by using the Evaluation link to the right.
