Our class will utilize a wide variety of materials and will provide students with a diverse learning experience. Because of the online format, the class will be focused on projects that primarily use readily available household materials such as paper towel rolls, egg cartons, cereal boxes, water bottles, etc.

     f) SAT Math 

In this class, students will be taught math topics in algebra, geometry, statistics, and pre calculus in order to prepare for both the math with and without calculator sections on the SAT. They will be given multiple practice problems in class and learn strategies to complete the section with both accuracy and speed. In addition to reviewing the concepts, the class will discuss strategies for solving typical SAT questions.

     g) SAT Reading/Writing 

The SAT test is very important for applying to college in the USA. Although colleges increasingly consider other aspects of the college application, raising your SAT score will make you a contender for the highest tier colleges. Schools that claim to be “test-optional” will still accept SAT scores and a better score will improve your chances over someone with a lower score or no score at all. The SAT is split into two sections: the math section and the Reading and Writing section. Generally, the reading and writing section is more difficult to improve, but this class will provide you with the skills you need to succeed on this difficult part of the test. For the reading section, we will examine specific types of tricky test questions and how they can be easily solved, methods to approach analyzing dense texts, and how to deal with managing time on the test. For the writing section, we will review and teach grammatical concepts like punctuation and sentence structure, understand the types of questions that are presented on the test, and introduce common test ideas like concise wording, repetition, and sentence order. This class will use real SAT practice tests and other reputable practice material to give you a familiarity with the testing material.
