SAT Math Preparation
SAT Math is designed to prepare the student to do well on the College Board SAT exam. The course will familiarize the student with the format of the math sections of the SAT and will teach the student testing techniques and strategies. The course will also include a comprehensive review of basic mathematics, algebra, geometry, statistics, and other math concepts needed for success on the SAT. This class is taught by NSA faculty but also extensively uses an outside online source so students can customize their practice and review, according to their individual strengths and weaknesses. Students will take several full-length SAT exams for practice throughout the course.
Students must have access to a TI-83 or TI-84 or other SAT approved graphing calculator. SAT230 counts as an elective course.
