# Rock The SAT Math Test: Problem Solving and Data Analysis

## Problem Solving and Data Analysis

The Problem Solving and Data Analysis section tests your ability to understand and represent data. This means that you have to pay attention to things such as units, measurements, ratios, trends, and principles of statistics. Some questions may be as simple as reading a value off of a graph, whereas, other questions may ask you to calculate something, like the probability of occurrence of a particular event. You will definitely have to know how to read data from line graphs, bar graphs, histograms, box-and-whisker plots, scatterplots, and two-way tables (categorical data). You may have to revisit some of the more trickier graphical methods, such as the box-and-whisker plots. Here is a table of all the concepts covered in this section:

For some concepts, you simply have to understand them, rather, than calculate them. For example, you will not be expected to calculate standard deviation, but, will be expected to know that a large standard deviation means the data is more spread out from the mean. You will NOT be asked to calculate standard deviation, margin of error, or confidence intervals. But, you must understand what these concepts mean. Another important thing to note here is that in statistics, confidence intervals other than 95% can be used, but the SAT questions will always use 95% confidence levels.)

There will be a total of 17 questions for this category β all for the Calculator portion.
