Lesson 06 - Raise Your Understanding of Statistics

Friday

You don't have to take a statistics class to master the concepts that the ACT and SAT will test you on. Most of the statistics and probability questions on these tests are pretty basic. In this lesson, we'll make sure you're prepared for them all. By the time you're finished, you'll have reviewed everything you need to know about tendency, frequency, and probability to ace the ACT and SAT.

Week 4

Lesson 07 - Master the ACT Math

Wednesday

By now, you're probably ready to try out the math concepts we’ve reviewed so far. So today, you'll get a chance to test yourself. We'll start with an overview of what you can expect to see on the ACT math test. Then we'll focus on the kinds of math questions you’ll encounter on the ACT, especially those that cover math basics and algebra. We'll go through 30 practice questions to show you exactly how to approach and master the ACT arithmetic and algebra questions.

Lesson 08 - Practice ACT Geometry and Trig

Friday

They say that practice makes perfect, so in this lesson, you'll get more opportunities to reach perfection! Through our analysis of 30 more practice questions, you’ll see just how to approach and correctly answer the geometry, trigonometry, and algebra II questions on the ACT. Once you’ve gone through the answer explanations in this lesson, you’ll feel confident about tackling any ACT math question that comes your way.

Week 5

Lesson 09 - Get to Know the SAT Math

Wednesday

The SAT math test sections look a little different than what you'll see on the ACT. There are two sets of math questions. Some are the standard multiple-choice math questions, and some aren't. In today's lesson, we'll go over exactly what you should expect on the SAT math, and then you'll get some practice by examining 13 practice SAT math questions. Just like when we talked about the ACT, you'll get thorough explanations of exactly how to deal with the types of SAT math questions.

Lesson 10 - Sharpen Your SAT Math Skills

Friday

In today's lesson, we'll focus on the most common type of SAT math question you'll see—the multiple-choice question. With a thorough examination of some example SAT math questions, you'll find out how to work through all kinds of multiple-choice math. You'll be whipping through the answer choices in no time!

Week 6

Lesson 11 - Succeed on the SAT SPR Questions

Wednesday

The SAT student produced response (SPR) questions don't appear on any other major standardized test, so you may not be familiar with how to deal with them. That's what this lesson is all about. Today, you'll get the scoop on how to answer math questions that don't give you answer choices to choose from, and you'll find out how to avoid making errors when you fill in the answer on the answer sheet. It's a very simple process to grid in your answers, but we'll show you just how simple by thoroughly explaining the approach to 10 sample SAT SPR questions.

Lesson 12 - Wrap Up the Course

Friday

You'll get a lot of information in the six weeks of this course, and you probably won't remember it all even with all of the additional work you put into each lesson. So in this last lesson, we'll review all the tips and strategies you learned throughout this course. In this lesson, we'll make sure you understand what you need to know for each math subject on the tests, review what you should focus on as you prepare, and show you how to best spend your study time as you prepare to strut your stuff on test day.
