SAT Grid-In Questions
The SAT Math Grid-Ins are tough. After all, you don't get choices like you do with the SAT math multiple-choice questions. However, there are only 10 of these question types, so even though they're difficult, it's not the end of your SAT score if you falter a little bit.
Each question offers you a problem that you must solve, and a grid where you must fill in the answer. You will not be given choices, so the questions are a little more difficult since you won't get even a shot at getting the answer correct if you don't know how to solve it.
These test your ability to reason mathematically, to understand basic math terminology, and to recall basic mathematic formulas and principles – i.e. factoring polynomials, determining slope, working with sets and sequences, etc. Brush up on your Geometry, Statistics, Algebra and the like. Guess if you don't know, because you aren’t penalized for wrong answers on SAT Math grid-ins.
Answer These Questions Last
Because you’ll need to do some calculations and scratch out the correct answer yourself, work on these after you've finished the SAT Math multiple-choice questions. Plus, since there are only 10 of these, if you don’t get to them all, you’ll still have a higher chance of scoring well if you answer all the multiple-choice questions.
The Question Get More Difficult As You Proceed
The last grid-ins are the toughest by far, so answer them in order and do yourself a favor.
