# SAT Math

**COURSE DESCRIPTION:**

The SAT raises many questions among parents and students alike. Parents may ask, “What is the SAT?” or “Why does my child need to take this test?” Students may think, “What is on the test?” and “How might I prepare for this test?” Throughout our four sessions, we will answer those questions and many more. Students will review mathematical content, such as Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry, which is essential for the SAT Mathematics portion of the test. In doing so, we will dissect questions from the SAT in order to develop a better context of the test itself. By strengthening their mathematical knowledge, students will be able to apply their skills to abstract questions from the SAT. Over the duration of the course, students will acquire testing strategies in order to gain more confidence during the extensive test. The success of the preparation course is reciprocated through the participation and diligence of the student. The work may seem intensive, but it is to stretch their logical and mathematical intelligence.
