You must take ACT Session I before you take ACT Session II

ACT Math Prep | Session I

sealand

Session I is a two-and-a-half-hour introduction to the test and the 'must-have' categories of question types, like geometry and linear algebra. Several programs that will be useful for standardized testing and classroom use alike will be distributed and practiced. Essential test-taking strategies for any student as well as the TI84 calculator's most important time- and mistake-saving features round out the class.

Student must provide their own calculator.

$110 for Session I which includes official ACT Practice Test

ACT Math Prep | Session II

Session II is a more intensive dive into math content—which will include refining the skills from the first half class—and calculator features that go beyond the basic elements (also 2.5 hours). This half includes more than double the number of programs from the first half of the class and reviews other testing content, like statistics and probability, that the Session I doesn’t.

Student must provide their own calculator.

Core Ideas

High-stakes testing really matters...for a really short time.

Sealand

 

It's our mission to work with students to help maximize their score potential. Their abilities, talents and work ethic will help them succeed at a higher level; we help them hold the door open to get there.

 

We don't want to replace mathematical know-how; we want only to help make it more accessible.

 

Many families have already invested in a scientific and graphing calculator; most students don't understand how it works beyond the basics of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. The Texas Instruments 84 family of calculators are ubiquitous in schools, and they're full of untapped resources and capabilities. We make those resources and knowledge available.

 

Most students don't know just how capable the TI-84 (and soon TI-Nspire!) model calculators are. The foundational idea for the class centered around training students on the many ways the calculators can answer questions for them, with the one caveat being that there's no replacement for good, factual, mathematical knowledge. A student has to be able to understand what a question is asking in order to recognize just what they should do with the calculators.
