# Ch 26: ACT Math: Sequences

Get ready for the ACT math exam with our user-friendly lessons. Complete the quick quizzes to make sure that you're on track and ready for the ACT test.

## ACT Math: Sequences - Chapter Summary

When dealing with sequences, or patterns, a variety of mathematics skills come into play. You'll need a firm foundation of basic algebra skills, in addition to a grasp of the following higher math topics:

• Finding and classifying arithmetic sequences
• Defining mathematical sequences
• Finding and classifying geometric sequences

After completing each video lesson, you can take the short quiz to be sure that you're hitting the target. Go back and review if you haven't yet mastered all of the concepts.

### ACT Math Objectives

The following is a breakdown of the ACT math content:

• 23% Pre-algebra
• 17% Elementary algebra
• 15% Intermediate algebra
• 15% Coordinate geometry
• 23% Plane geometry
• 7% Trigonometry

The entire math section of the ACT is composed of 60 multiple-choice questions, and you'll have 60 minutes to complete the exam. Testing for sequences and patterns falls under intermediate algebra, but your basic math foundation in many areas will be useful. Intermediate algebra skills tested on the ACT:

• Absolute value equations and inequalities
• Sequences and patterns
• Systems of equations
• Functions
• Modeling
• Matrices
• Roots of polynomials
• Complex numbers

Our short, video lessons and quick quizzes address what you'll need to know about sequences and patterns. You'll be pulling together all of your logic skills in solving the exam's practical math questions.

You can solve all of the problems without a calculator, but you may use an approved model of calculator, if you wish. Check the ACT student site for details. Your math ACT scores will include one score for the 60 questions, in addition to sub-scores for combinations of algebra, geometry and trigonometry.
