SAT Mathematics is a required entrance exam to many colleges and universities. Despite its importance, many students continue to struggle in it yet this exam is based on very common basic Math principles. When these ideas are reviewed in depth, any student is bound to boost their SAT score tremendously.
This study guide is based on ideas that I have used to help students study SAT Math. I have had immense success in helping students succeed. One of my students recently scored a 770/800 in the SAT Math.
This e-book will help all SAT MATH students to reinforce important ideas needed to succeed in the SAT Math section. Quadratic functions feature prominently in the SAT exam.
This document describes what a quadratic function is. I have also described how quadratic equations are solved and finally, I present some applications of quadratic functions.
In it you will find the following ideas.
I. Quadratic Functions in Standard Form
II. Solving Quadratic equations
a.) By factorization
b.) By using the principle of square roots
c.) By the completing of squares method
d.) By using the quadratic formula
e.) By graphing
III. Finally in the last section, I present some vivid applications of quadratic functions!
