About the Course
Prospective college students who hope to major in mathematics or a related field, such as computer programming, economics or engineering, could improve their chances of admission by performing well on the SAT Mathematics Level 2 subject test. Offered six times a year, this test addresses four content areas: numbers and operations, algebra and functions, geometry and measurement, and data analysis, statistics and probability. You'll have an hour to complete the test's 50 multiple-choice questions.
Our team of experienced, professional educators developed this online course to help you prepare for the SAT Mathematics Level 2 subject test. This series of video lessons begins with a basic math review, which covers prime factorization, complex fractions and mathematical sets, among other topics. You'll learn to combine like terms in algebraic expressions, define zero and negative exponents, and write linear equations, before moving on to more complex topics, like logic and limits, as well as probability, combinations and permutations. Other topics covered in this study guide include the following:
- Absolute value equations and inequalities
- Functions in math
- Rational expressions
- Sequences and series
- Basic and advanced coordinate geometry
- 3-dimensional geometry
- Data and statistics
The SAT Mathematics Level 2 subject test is aimed at high school students who have completed two years of algebra, one year of geometry and one or more higher-level mathematics classes, such as trigonometry or precalculus. The test builds on the SAT Mathematics Level 1 subject test, which might be a better option for you if you haven't taken higher-level math.
SAT Mathematics Level 2 Preparation & Registration
The video lessons in this course are easy to follow, and each one can typically be watched in less than 10 minutes. Once you've viewed the videos, you can test your mathematics proficiency by completing our self-assessment quizzes. These short tests are presented in multiple-choice format, just like the SAT Mathematics Level 2 subject test.
Registration for this test, which is offered in January, May, June, October, November and December, is available by mail or through the College Board website. You'll need to register no later than one month prior to your preferred test date. During the registration process, you can choose up to four colleges or universities that you'd like to receive your test scores.
SAT Mathematics Level 2 Scoring
Scores from the SAT Mathematics Level 2 subject test are available online approximately three weeks after your test date. You'll receive a score ranging from 200-800, as well as a percentile rate, which will let you know how you scored compared to other test-takers. Your report also will indicate your subscore in each of the following content areas:
Numbers and Operations
Questions on numbers and operations comprise 10-14% of the SAT Mathematics Level 2 subject test. You'll be tested on your knowledge of ratios, proportions and complex numbers, as well as sequences and series. Other topics covered in this content category include matrices and vectors.
Algebra and Functions
This content category makes up the largest portion of the test at 48-52%. In addition to measuring your understanding of expressions, equations and inequalities, this section includes questions about the properties of various types of functions, including trigonometric and inverse trigonometric, recursive and parametric.
Geometry and Measurement
Geometry and measurement questions comprise 28-32% of the test. You'll face questions about coordinate and 3-dimensional geometry, but the largest part of this section focuses on trigonometry, including the laws of sines and cosines, double angle formulas and radian measures.
Data Analysis, Statistics and Probability
Questions in this section, which makes up the final 8-12% of the test, center on standard deviation, least squares regression and probability. You'll have to calculate means, medians and modes and determine interquartile ranges. Graphs and plots also fall under this content category.
