# ACT Mathematics

ACT or the American Collee Testing Exam is a standardised test for the admission to bachelor course from IVY league colleges. ACT exam evaluates the student on four major ares like Maths, Science, language and writing areas. ACT assesses the students' performance in punctuation, grammar, sentence strucure, etc, in Maths, it covers the student's mathematical skills.

## Know more about ACT

ACT (American College Testing) is a standardized test used for college admissions in the United States. It assesses a student's knowledge and skills in English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning. The ACT test is administered by ACT, Inc. and is accepted by most colleges and universities in the US.

The ACT test consists of four main sections: English, Math, Reading, and Science. Additionally, there is an optional Writing section that some colleges may require or recommend. Here are some key details about each section:

English (45 minutes): This section measures your understanding of English grammar, punctuation, usage, sentence structure, and rhetorical skills. It includes multiple-choice questions and a passage with underlined portions where you need to identify errors or make improvements.

Math (60 minutes): The Math section evaluates your mathematical skills in areas such as algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and basic statistics. It includes multiple-choice and grid-in questions that require you to solve problems and apply mathematical concepts.

Reading (35 minutes): In the Reading section, you'll be presented with four passages from various subjects and asked questions to assess your comprehension, interpretation, and analysis skills. The passages may include prose fiction, humanities, social science, and natural science.

Science (35 minutes): The Science section measures your scientific reasoning abilities rather than specific content knowledge. You'll be given several sets of scientific data, charts, graphs, and experiments, and you'll need to analyse and interpret the information to answer questions.

Writing (optional, 40 minutes): The optional Writing section requires you to write an essay in response to a prompt. It assesses your ability to develop a clear argument, support it with relevant evidence, and showcase your writing skills. While the Writing section is not included in the composite score, some colleges may require it for admission.
