Based on my analysis of current SAT trends, here are key areas your child should focus on:


Prediction #1 Linear Equations and Inequalities

They might appear simple at first glance, but these problems often require more thought. A practical approach is to plug in values and solve. This method not only simplifies the problem but also helps in accurately identifying the correct answer.


Prediction #2 Grammar

Subject-Verb Agreement: This is a crucial aspect of the English section. I recommend a straightforward strategy: match the subject with the correct verb form. This might seem basic, but it’s highly effective in avoiding common mistakes.


Prediction #3 Trigonometry

Complementary Angles Rule: For those who find trigonometry challenging, focusing on the complementary angles rule, especially in problems involving sine and cosine, can be a game changer.


Prediction #4 No Solution or Infinitely Many Solutions

Teach your child to quickly identify these types of equations. It’s all about comparing coefficients and constants – a skill that can save valuable time during the test.


Prediction #5 Percentage Problems

These questions often involve translating English phrases into mathematical equations. Encourage your child to practice this translation process, as it's key to solving these problems accurately.


Prediction #6 Words in Context

This is a common stumbling block. The trick is to find synonyms or definitions within the passage, use positive or negative connotations of the words, and break down words into their linguistic parts. This approach can be particularly helpful when your child is unfamiliar with a word.


Prediction #7 Linear vs. Exponential Problems

Caution your child not to jump to conclusions based on the presence of percentages. Analyzing the form of the equation is crucial in these scenarios.


Prediction #8 Systems of Equations

Here’s where technology can be a true ally. Using tools like the Desmos graphing calculator can simplify these problems significantly.
