SAT Math Study Group
(starting April 16th)
Get ready for the SAT with our SAT Math Study Group! We believe the best way to learn math is by practicing. Join other students who are preparing for the same test. This is a guided program where students will study and practice math SAT questions. We will identify areas to study, assign problems, and be there to answer questions. Our study groups help to promote both independent and collaborative study habits, while having extra support.
Sessions may be completed at student’s own pace, and program is ongoing. Students may start at anytime and sign up for ANY 8 available study groups sessions. Limited to 4 students per study group session. We will keep track of each student's progress as they work through the program.
Why choose a Study Group over a traditional SAT prep class?
From the official College Board website:
“Research shows that students who study together learn 2.5 times as much as students
who study alone. Here are some of the reasons that studying in a group is so effective:
· Community. Your study group will unite around a common goal—to do your best on the SAT.
· Accountability. You won’t let teammates down because they’re counting on you
to show up and stay focused.
· Support when you need it. The group will be there to help you get unstuck.
· Stress relief. Sharing a plan with others reduces test stress."
Students are required to bring their own review book:
