This guided study course focuses on strategic preparation and practice for the Math portion of the ACT and SAT, as well as the Science portion of the ACT. The course familiarizes students with the exam and seeks to help students reduce potential test-taking anxiety. There is extensive instruction on test-taking strategies particular to these exams, including guided practice in and outside of class. Students review and practice key concepts in algebra, select topics in math which are necessary for many of the types of exam problems, interpretation of data, scientific investigation, problem solving, data analysis, evaluation of models, inference, and evaluation of experimental results. The course also provides insights and skills that will help students in other academic areas of high school and college.

“This is a great course for juniors and sophomores, especially when taken jointly with the English prep course as well. I saw a big improvement in my scores, and even managed to get above my target score! Other than the good test taking strategies and topic reviews in this course, I would say the best benefit is that it forces you to study consistently, making sure you are progressing. It is also really encouraging to have other people alongside you as you prepare for tests.”
