SAT Review of Number and Operations

Overview The SAT Mathematics test includes both multiple-choice questions and questions that require a written numerical answer. Students’ mathematical reasoning is assessed in separate areas of number and operations; algebra and functions; geometry and measurement; data analysis; probability and statistics. These areas follow the guidelines set by the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics, and […]

SAT Review of Algebra and Functions

Overview Students taking the SAT Mathematics test are assessed on areas such as number and operations, algebra and functions, geometry and measurement, data analysis, and probability and statistics. The Algebra and Functions strand includes operations on algebraic expressions, solving equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, rational systems of linear equations and inequalities, direct and inverse variation, […]

SAT Review of Data Analysis

Overview The SAT Mathematics test questions assess different areas of mathematical knowledge and application such as number and operations, algebra and functions, geometry and measurement, probability and statistics, and data analysis. Data analysis questions address students’ ability to interpret information presented in tables, graphs, and charts, recognize change and trends, and analyze change by performing […]

SAT Review of Probability and Statistics

Overview Probability and statistics concepts are tested as one of the strands of SAT Mathematics. Topics include measures of central tendency such as mean, median, and mode; elementary probability; and geometric probability. The test doesn’t contain long calculations of standard deviation or other statistical measurements. Why Statistics? Probability and statistics concepts are often combined with […]

SAT Review of Geometry and Measurement

Overview Students taking the SAT Mathematics test are assessed on areas such as number and operations, algebra and functions, geometry and measurement, data analysis, and probability and statistics. The Geometry and Measurement strand covers topics such as geometric notation, concepts such as points, lines, and angles in the plane. Geometric figures such as triangles, quadrilaterals, […]

Math Review of Binomial Distributions

Overview A binomial experiment  has a fixed number of independent trials, and each trial has only two possible outcomes.  Each of the trials has the same probability of success.  The probability distribution is called a binomial distribution. What Types of Problems Are Binomial? All the characteristics of a binomial experiment are present, then the distribution […]
