# SAT MATH 2 DISCUSSION

## About "SAT Math 2 Discussion"

"SAT Math 2 Discussion" is a web page which has been developed to help the students who are getting prepared to write SAT. The main aim of making this page to help the students to post their doubts in math, share their thoughts about SAT.

## SAT Math 2 Syllabus

Numbers and Operations

Operations, ratio and proportion, complex numbers, counting, elementary number theory, matrices, sequences, series, vectors: Approximately 5-7 questions.

Algebra and Functions

Expressions, equations, inequalities, representation and modeling, properties of functions (linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, periodic, piece-wise, recursive, parametric): Approximately 19 – 21 questions

Geometry and Measurement

## How to prepare SAT 2 math?

When students see the syllabus of SAT 2 math, they may think,  it is difficult to prepare this syllabus. Actually it is not. When they prepare SAT 2 math in a right way, it will not be a difficult one. Students can easily prepare SAT 2 math.

For example, let us consider the topic "Coordinate Geometry". In this topic, we have many sub topics.

They are

1. Lines

2. Parabolas

3. Circles

4. Ellipses

5. Hyperbolas

6. Symmetry

7. Transformations

8. Polar coordinates

When students learn the first sub topic "Lines", first they have to study the basic stuff.

They are,

General form of equation of a line, standard equation of a line, different forms of equations of line, how to find the equation of line in different situations, how word problems can be solved using the equations of line etc.,

Once the students understand the above basic concepts in "Line", they will be able to do any kind of problem in the topic "Lines". That is, whatever twist is kept in the question, students will be able to solve the problem and get the right answer.

Like this, in each of the above topics, students have to learn the basic stuff which are much required to solve problems in that topic.
