Sandweiss Test Prep is excited to announce that we will be offering a week-long Summer Math Intensive Workshop, intended primarily for students who plan on taking the ISEE or SSAT exam in the fall of 2017. The workshop will be offered for two different levels: one for students intending to take either the Lower Level ISEE or Middle Level SSAT (applicants to grades 6-8), and one for students intending to take the Upper Level version of either exam (applicants to grades 9-10).

The purpose of the workshop is to provide students with an intensive review of the math content that is tested on the ISEE and SSAT exams. Due to the fact that both exams cover some concepts that have not yet been introduced in regular grade-level math courses at school, many prospective test-takers struggle with the quantitative portion of the ISEE or SSAT. Although our regular full-length courses devote several class sessions to learning both content and strategy for the math sections, we have found that some students require more time to master the math concepts they need to know in order to be successful on their exam. Our Math Intensive workshops are designed with these students in mind, but they are open to other students who would benefit from a brief refresher of math skills they have already learned before advancing to a higher-level math class in school.

Each workshop is one week in duration, and we will offer multiple sections for both levels.

Lower Level ISEE & Middle Level SSAT

The Lower Level ISEE/Middle Level SSAT Workshop will review the following math concepts:

Arithmetic (2 lessons):

  • Number Properties
  • Factors/Multiples/Remainders
  • Fractions/Decimals/Percents
  • Absolute Value and the Number Line
  • Ratios and Proportions
  • Exponents and Roots
  • Units and Measurement
  • Mean/Median/Mode/Range
  • Probability
  • Combinations
  • Sets, Sequences, and Graphs

Algebra (2 lessons):

  • Translating words into expressions
  • Simplifying Expressions
  • Factoring
  • FOIL
  • Solving single-variable Equations
  • Inequalities
  • Simple Functions
  • Word Problems

Geometry (1 lesson):

  • Lines and Angles
  • Triangles
  • Quadrilaterals
  • Circles
  • Solids
  • Coordinate Geometry

Upper Level ISEE & SSAT

The Upper Level ISEE/SSAT Workshop is structured similarly and will review all of the concepts described above (at a more advanced level). It will also cover these additional concepts:

  • Imaginary numbers
  • Factoring Polynomials
  • Systems of Equations
  • Quadratic Equations
  • Intermediate Functions
  • Symbol Problems
  • Properties of Polygons
  • Transformations
  • Sine/Cosine/Tangent
