The Math Test assesses your knowledge of a finite number of math concepts (see bel0w). Mastering these concepts is critical in order to score your highest on the test. There are two types of questions: multiple-choice and grid-in. In the Bridge Program, our coaches teach the math concepts and illustrate how to apply them to both types of questions. Below is a list of concepts test on the Math Test:
Number Theory, Properties of Integers, Prime Numbers, Even and Odd Numbers, Positive and Negative Numbers, Consecutive Integers, Number Lines, Digits, Factors and Multiples, Factor Trees, Order of Operations, Percentages, Ratios, Proportions, Squares and other Powers, Square Roots, Data Analysis, Operations on Rational Numbers, Unit Conversions
Polynomials, Exponents, Solving Linear Equations and Systems of Linear Equations, Substitution, FOIL, Factoring, Absolute Value, Rate, Inequalities, Applied Algebra, Translating Math Sentences, Mean, Median, Linear Functions, Quadratic Functions, Symbols as Representations of Operations, Probability, Permutations, Combinations, Sets, Interpretation of Graphs and Tables, Analyzing Statistical Data
Lines and Angles, Area and Circumference of Circles, Area and Perimeter of Triangles and other Polygons, Pythagorean Theorem, Special Right Triangles, Quadrilaterals, Integrated Shapes, Volume of Cube, Rectangular Prism, and Cylinder, Coordinate Geometry, Midpoint and Distance
Trigonometry, Radian Measure, Unit Circle, SOHCAHTOA, Complex Numbers, Non-Linear Functions
The directions are as follows:
Directions – Math Test No Calculator: For questions 1-15, solve each problem, choose the best answer from the choices provided, and fill in the corresponding circle on your answer sheet. For questions 16-20, solve the problem and enter your answer in the grid on the answer sheet. Please refer to the directions before question 16 on how to enter your answers in the grid. You may use any available space in your test booklet for scratch work. The use of a calculator is not permitted.
Directions – Math Test Calculator: For questions 1-30, solve each problem, choose the best answer from the choices provided, and fill in the corresponding circle on your answer sheet. For questions 31-38, solve the problem and enter your answer in the grid on the answer sheet. Please refer to the directions before question 16 on how to enter your answers in the grid. You may use any available space in your test booklet for scratch work. The use of a calculator is permitted.
- All variables and expressions used represent real numbers unless otherwise indicated.
- Figures provided in this test are drawn to scale unless otherwise indicated.
- All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.
- Unless otherwise indicated, the domain of a given function f is the set of all real numbers x for which f(x) is a real number.
The directions and format for the Grid-in questions are as follows:
Math Test Reference Information
The information below is provided on the SAT. However, it is important for you to know when and how to use these formulas without having to review them during test time. You should use the reference information on an as-needed basis, if necessary.
