ACT Math Boot Camp

For 11th and 12th graders
One 3-hour boot camp

This one-session boot camp is for students preparing for the math portion of the ACT who want a shorter course than the six-session intensive ACT/SAT/PSAT course. At the boot camp, students will take one 60-minute math section from a real ACT. Then, in addition to studying the solutions to the questions from 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 ACT (including the effective use of the TI-83, TI-84, TI-86, and TI-Nspire (non-CAS models) calculators). There are many easy-to-learn strategies that make standardized math 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 sufficient 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.
