Succeeding on the SAT Math
Part 5 of our SAT multi blog series focuses on the SAT Math. Performing well on the SAT Math requires you to demonstrate your ability to think conceptually and apply math content learned during the first three years of high school. The SAT Math tests your ability in four areas of mathematics. They are listed below.
· Heart of Algebra: pre-algebra and most Algebra I topics
· Passport to Advanced Math: advanced Algebra I and Algebra II topics
· Problem Solving and Data Analysis: data analysis topics from middle school and high school math, basic probability, and pre-algebra topics associated with data analysis (rates, ratios, proportions, percent, fractions)
· Additional Topics in Math: some topics in Geometry, basic operations with complex and imaginary numbers, and basic trigonometry
There is a no calculator section and a calculator section of the SAT Math.
When working with our students, we help them by teaching and reviewing these math concepts, as well as how to attack these types of problems efficiently and intelligently. We ensure that students have a strong command of the test, the content, and strategies. They will need all three to succeed on this and any standardized test they take.
If you're interested in either private tutoring or a structured test prep course, please visit our website, www.iescentralmass.net, or contact us at 508-213-8421. We look forward to helping you and your children with all of their test prep needs.
