• Pythagorean theorem and trigonometry
• Radians and degrees: conversions and understanding on scientific calculators

This chapter also includes practice in how to find 'x' by solving trigonometric equations. Review all of these topics through our short, user-friendly videos and quizzes.

ACT Math Objectives

The math section of the ACT test is a 60-minute, 60-question exam. The multiple-choice questions analyze your reasoning skills in the solutions of math problems. In general, the math test includes these six content areas:

• Trigonometry
• Coordinate geometry
• Plane geometry
• Pre-algebra
• Elementary algebra
• Intermediate algebra

The trigonometry portion of the math test makes up 7% of the questions. The testing focuses on the following crucial areas:

• Trigonometric relations in right triangles
• Properties and values of trigonometric functions
• Trigonometric functions in graphing and modeling
• Trigonometric identities and equations

You'll get four scores for the math test, including an overall score for all 60 questions, followed by sub-scores in plane geometry/trigonometry, pre-algebra/elementary algebra and intermediate algebra/coordinate geometry. A set of 18 problems forms the basis for the plane geometry/trigonometry sub-score.
