SAT Math Builder

SAT Math Builder

The Edge will run a new SAT Math Builder course starting this Fall to give our Grade 9/10 or Year 10/11 students a head start on their SAT Prep. Even students who earn top grades in their AP Calculus and IB Math HL courses often struggle to achieve top scores on SAT Math. This is usually because students encounter 2 unique challenges on the SAT Math test, strict timing for each section and the complicated/confusing way the questions are structured.

SAT Math Section:

Total QuestionsTotal TimeApproximate Time per Question
(No-Calculator Section - 25 mins
/Calculator Section - 55mins)
1.4 mins / question

To help students overcome these challenges, our Test Prep experts are here! In this course, students will:

  • Gain a solid understanding of the fundamental SAT Math concepts that appear on the test
  • Learn rigorous techniques and strategies to avoid mistakes and deal with difficult questions
