Rock The SAT Math Test: Passport to Advanced Math
Passport to Advanced Math
The Passport to Advanced Math category is all about understanding the structure of expressions and being able to manipulate them to solve for different variables. This also means that you have to understand what the variables represent. Basically, this section tests concepts that build on the concepts tested in the Heart of Algebra category. You are further expected to know the basics of equations, functions, and polynomial algebra. This includes polynomial division, long division, and functional end behaviour. And it also means that all those things you hate – fractions, radicals, and exponents – are all tested!
The SAT Math test uses the following Cartesian plane assumptions for any graph on the xy-plane:
- The axes are perpendicular and the scales are linear.
- The values on the horizontal axis increase as you move to the right.
- The values on the vertical axis increase as you move up.
Note that this means that you CANNOT assume that the size of the units or measurements on the two axes is the same (unless the question specifically states that they are).
When you begin your prep for the SAT math section, make sure you master Heart of Algebra before moving on to this section.
There will be a total of 16 questions for Passport to Advanced Math– 7 for the Calculator portion and 9 for the No-Calculator portion.
