Before you continue, keep in mind that there will usually only be 1-2 solid geometry questions on any given ACT, so you should prioritize **studying planar (flat) geometry and coordinate geometry** first.

## What math should I know for the ACT?

The ACT Math Test usually breaks down into 6 questions types: pre-algebra, elementary algebra, and intermediate algebra questions; plane geometry and coordinate geometry questions; and some trigonometry questions.

## Is the ACT mostly geometry?

The ACT math section examines students heavily on geometry. All in all, the ACT math section will consist of about 18 geometry questions (out of 60 total questions).

## Is the ACT or SAT harder?

Section Summary: Neither the SAT nor the ACT is harder than the other – but each test benefits a different type of student. It’s essential that you figure out which test is best suited for you, so that you can achieve the highest scores possible.

## What is the shortest side of a 30 60 90 Triangle?

And so on. The side opposite the 30° angle is always the smallest, because 30 degrees is the smallest angle. The side opposite the 60° angle will be the middle length, because 60 degrees is the mid-sized degree angle in this triangle.

## What geometry is on the SAT?

The SAT Math Test includes questions that assess your understanding of the key concepts in the geometry of lines, angles, triangles, circles, and other geometric objects. Other questions may also ask you to find the area, surface area, or volume of an abstract figure or a real-life object.

## Does ACT cover Trig?

There will generally be around 4-6 questions questions on the ACT that deal with trigonometry (the official ACT guidelines say that trigonometry problems make up 7% of the test). They may seem complicated at first glance, but most of them boil down to a few simple concepts.

## Is Algebra 2 on the ACT?

ACT math focuses on algebra, geometry, and basic trigonometry. While Algebra II is not required for success on the ACT, a junior taking Algebra II might want to make sure he or she has a solid understanding of Algebra I. (In some cases a few months of Algebra II is the perfect review for the necessary skills.)

## Is ACT or SAT math easier?

ACT Math Is Both Easier – and Harder – than SAT Math. Making a decision between the SAT Math test and the ACT Math test is actually one of the more significant choices you’ll need to make. The SAT and ACT test Math skills in very different ways. The SAT Math requires less memorization of formulas.

## Is there calculus on the ACT?

Calculus. The ACT does not test calculus. You don’t even have to know how to pronounce calculus to get a good ACT Mathematics Test score. Yes, about 10 percent of the test covers trig concepts, but if you answer the other questions correctly, your math score should be outta sight.

## Can you get a 37 on ACT?

What Is a Perfect ACT score? The highest possible score you can earn on the ACT is 36 (on a scale of 1-36).
