|新 SAT New SAT Math & Verbal||乐建华/葛妮瑜||Math:Major changes have come to the SAT in the spring of 2016. The new SAT math test includes math questions drawn from four major content groups:
Comparing to the old SAT, these additional math topics will now be required:
In this course, we will cover main topics in the four content groups and pay special attention to these new topics.
Verbal and Writing:
The scope of this class is the verbal sections of the new SAT. We’ll cover all the parts of the English and the Reading tests including comprehension and grammar. Although the essay is now optional, many students will take the essay either because they will apply to colleges that require the essay or because having the essay gives them a wider variety of choices when application time comes. Given the amount of materials to be covered and the fact that this is a semester course, this class will be fast-paced and intense with many reading and writing requirements. Self-study and follow up-study are highly encouraged, especially for students aiming to take the test in the fall.
