WHAT IS SAT?

The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities as a means of measuring high school students’ readiness. It is a multiple-choice, hand-written test delivered through the College Board. The SAT compares all applicants through a common data set of numeracy and literacy. This standardized test can be used by the admission officers in correlation with your high school grades, extracurricular activities, recommendation letters, interviews and personal essays. The importance of SAT scores depends on individual school procedures. According to the College Board, a high SAT and/or ACT score opens you to more options for attending colleges and receiving scholarships.

WHAT IS IN SAT MATH SECTION OF SAT?

The Math Test measures comprehension and application of mathematical concepts. Students with a strong math score will be able to compete in a wide variety of college majors and careers, particularly because this test assesses prerequisite numeracy skills like problem-solving, strategic use of tools, algebraic equations, data analysis, and advanced mathematics.

In each content section, there are questions which challenge both conceptual thinking and analytical thinking. In general, students must:

› analyze, solve, and create linear equations and inequalities;

› conceptualize core data as it relates to statistics in science, social studies, and career-related contexts;

› exhibit an understanding of rates, ratios, and proportional relationships;

› “identify quantitative measures of center, the overall pattern, and any striking deviations from the overall pattern and spread in one or two different datasets, including recognizing the effects of outliers on the measures of center of a data set.”

› recognize equivalent expressions, rewrite expressions, and understand where different forms are useful;

› solve single variable quadratic and higher-order equations and comprehend the graphs of quadratic and higher-order functions;

› interpret and build functions.

The math section of SAT has two portions, one with one of these calculators (38 questions, 55 minutes) and one without (20 questions, 25 minutes). Naturally, the calculator section enables students to perform complex equations faster, while focusing on higher-level reasoning. However, the calculator should not be used as a crutch , because some questions will appear where simple math can be done quicker in the mind. So the students that recognize this will save themselves time by not relying on their calculator when they do not need it. Some questions in the calculator section, therefore, can be answered much easier without using the calculator.The SAT Math Test has thirteen non-multiple choice questions: eight in the calculator portion and five in the no-calculator portion. In these questions, students must grid in their answers rather than select a single choice.On these grid response questions, multiple correct responses and solution processes are possible, making this a student-produced response. This means students have an opportunity to freely apply their planning, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.

The “Heart of Algebra” in SAT Math section covers the most prominent subjects in Algebra including solving linear equations and linear inequalities, interpreting linear functions, the system of linear inequalities, solving system of linear equations, and their related word problems. “Data Analysis” in SAT Math section covers ratios, rates and proportions, percents, units, table data, different kinds of plots, data inference, mean, mode and median and their related word problems. “Passport To Advanced Mathematics” in SAT math section covers exponential equations, radical and rational equations, operations with polynomials and their graphs, non-linear equation graphs, function notations and isolating quantities and their respected word problems. “Additional Topics In Math” for SAT math sections includes volume and right triangle word problems, congruent and similarity, and right triangle trigonometry, angles, arc length and trig functions, circle theorems, circle equations and complex numbers.
