Winter-Spring 2017 Summer 2017 Fall 2017 Math Labs

PSAT Math Prep Boot Camp

For 11th graders
One 4-hour boot camp

This one-session boot camp is for students preparing to take the PSAT. At the boot camp, students will take timed math tests from real PSATs. In addition to studying the solutions to the questions on the practice test, students will review all necessary mathematical content and will learn the many problem-solving techniques crucial for success on the math portion of the PSAT (including the effective use of the TI-83, TI-84, TI-86, TI-89, and TI-Nspire calculators). There are many easy-to-learn strategies that make standardized tests much easier — for example, doing problems numerically rather then algebraically. But despite how easy it is to learn these techniques, they don’t come naturally. In part this is because the very techniques that work so well on these multiple-choice math tests (students, in fact, are rewarded for using them) — these same techniques are discouraged in regular math classes. With a little practice, students can learn these strategies and raise their test scores.

Each student will receive individual attention: advice about how to best approach the test will be tailored to each student’s strengths and weaknesses.

The 2017 PSAT dates are Wednesday, Oct. 11, Saturday, Oct. 14, and Wednesday, Oct. 25. All high schools will offer the PSAT on one of these dates.
