Working with Data & Statistics - Chapter Objectives

If you completed trigonometry or precalculus courses as part of your high school curriculum, you might consider submitting scores on the SAT level 2 mathematics subject test to demonstrate your interest in this area to college admission departments. Some schools might also use your scores to place you in intermediate-level math courses or require them as part of the admissions process.

Around 10% of SAT level 2 mathematics test questions cover the area of data analysis, statistics and probability. It's on this part of the exam where a familiarity with mean, median, mode, standard deviation, linear regression and other topics covered in this chapter will come in handy. Additional test questions cover the areas of geometry, algebra and number operations. There are 50 multiple-choice questions altogether, and you'll be given an hour to complete them.
