Discus: SAT/ACT Tests and Test Preparation: June 2004 Archive: Questions/Survey for MATH IIC takers
By Encomium (Encomium) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 03:49 pm: Edit

I have a quick question for people who either took the SAT II Math IIC and know their scores or for people who took it but don't know their scores.

1. What was or score/how do you feel you did?
2. Which of these topics did your Precalculus class NOT cover:

-Conic Sections
-Parametric Equation
-Polar form of Conic Sections
-Math Induction
-Sequences & Series
-Permutations/Combinatorics type stuff
-Polar Coordinates
-Linear Programming
-Solid/Plane Geometry/Volume type stuff
-Partial Fraction Decomposition

NOT stuff you self-taught...stuff you learned in class.

1. 750+
2. Parametric equations
Polar form of conic functons
Math induction
Sequences and series
Polar coodinates
Most volume stuff
Partial fraction decomposition

Yeah, I had to self-study quite a bit.

1. 780+
-Conic Sections
-Polar form of Conic Sections
-Solid/Plane Geometry/Volume type stuff

For several other sections we covered, I feel that I did not learn much, such as series and sequences.

1. 700+ (not much)
2. logic
solid plane geometry
partial fraction decomposition
math induction

1.780+ (actually hoping 800)
Polar Coordinates
Math Induction

I'm expecting maybe 680-720 (I took the june test)
In my math analysis class, we learned pretty much all of the topics you listed - I just didn't review any of it at all and instead took the test based on whatever i happened to have retained. (Yeah, big mistake, I know)

my school does things that aren't on it, like induction and partial fractions, but not things that are on it

By Kstar (Kstar) on Sunday, June 06, 2004 - 06:15 pm: Edit

1. minium 680
2. permutations

2. never took pre-calc
i learned vectors from ap physics b
parametric and polar stuff i learned from ap calc bc
probability and other stuff from math team

Anyhow, I taught myself precalc in a month and a half -I covered everything there but partial fractions - but I learned those in Calc. For some reason I have a really hard time with the 2c - it's not like I study a lot for tests in class at school or anything and I still get As - I think I freak out though

By Hertish (Hertish) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 04:42 pm: Edit

780 ~ 800

I think my precalc class covered almost everything
