The three pass approach is a method and strategy to taking the math ACT. This method looks at the test in three phases, and teaches students how to not look at the test as a whole 60 questions but in the distinct segments.
This approach has been used by my students for the last 5 years. It has shown great results in improving student who are in the 15-20 range raise there score on average 2 to 4 points by just using the method alone without any content being covered.
The number one struggle for math ACT takers is the time allowed for getting 60 questions in 60 min. With this approach we teach students to save time and get the questions they can right. Also, we look at how many questions they must get right in order to get the score they need.
