SAT Math

The Math skills required for the SAT are of a basic standard that should be within the reach of a Year 11 and 12 NZ Mathematics Curriculum.You don’t need to learn up lots of new formulae but you will need to sharpen up your thinking skills.

Questions are of two main types:

  1. Problem Solving: multiple choice (5 answer choices)
  2. Student-produced response questions (‘grid-ins’)

The three Math sections are organized as follows:

  1. One section of 25 minutes containing 8 problem solving questions and 10 grid-ins
  2. One section of 25 minutes containing 20 problem solving questions
  3. One section of 20 minutes containing 16 problem solving questions

You will see that there are a total of 54 scored math questions on one test.

Math questions on the SAT will be of different difficulty levels. Each section will start out easy, move to medium level and end with hard questions.

In any of the question types you may be tested on basic arithmetic, algebra, geometry and a few miscellaneous topics (mainly data interpretation and applied math).
