The redesign of the new SAT affects the way the test is structured, administered, timed, and scored. There is an optional essay, fewer multiple choice questions, and no penalty for wrong answers. Emphasis is placed on critical thinking, problem solving, and data analysis. The new SAT Mathematics section gives students fifty-five minutes with a calculator to answer thirty-seven questions. It also gives students twenty-five minutes without a calculator to answer twenty questions. There are multiple choice and grid-in questions, as well as one item set grid-in question. The questions have a [more]

Students' skills in Basic Math, Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry are updated as needed. Lessons can be followed from previous SAT tests and study guides, students' textbooks, and other sources. Subjects covered include: a. Students will master fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios and proportions. b. They will understand and be able to solve one-step and two-step algebra problems. c. Students will be able to use elimination and substitution methodologies to solve algebra problems. d. Students will be able to graph equations and inequalities, and pull important information off of graphs [more]

At the first lesson, the student and I work side by side on a sample test. I identify strengths and weaknesses in the student's math, reading, calculator, and problem-solving skills. We then develop an individualized plan for further study and practice. I encourage students and parents to set up early practice in a no-pressure environment, focusing on obtaining correct answers; timing and scoring more effectively come nearer the test date. I taught AP Calculus during a year when my school was designated by the College Board as #1 in the world for Advanced Placement scores. I sponsored JETS (Ju [more]

As a full-time tutor, I have tutored for the SAT - particularly the math section - many times. I find that the no-calculator section is often a challenge for students who have grown up with a calculator in their hand, but as a tutor who almost never uses a calculator, I know many tricks for quick calculations and can offer those to students. That said, I know those calculators better than most people and can teach students how to fully utilize each button and option, including how to make their own programs for the test. I also know all of the math concepts themselves that come up. [more]

The SAT Math covers topics from Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry. If you are in Pre-Calc, you have most likely seen all the information before. While the test is certainly checking for content knowledge, it also checks for a certain level of ability to manipulate the material. This is one area where the SAT likes to do more of that the ACT. Starting with the 2016 testing, the Math portion now has a calculator and non-calculator portion. Though for a large part of the calculator portion, just about all questions can be done without, and usually with less effort or the same [more]

I have tutored several students in the math portion of the SAT. During the first few sessions, I cover all topics tested on the SAT Math section. Then we discuss test taking strategies for the SAT. I have created several worksheets that prepare the student for the math section of the SAT. I also have created a list of some classic question types that show up frequently on the math section.
