Title: Questions in mind

Improve Your ACT Math Score with These Easy Steps
• If you are struggling with the ACT Math section,
you are not alone. This section of the ACT is
widely considered to be the most difficult, as
you have 60 minutes to answer 60 questions.
That's an average of one question per minute,
which leaves little time for double-checking your
answers or taking short breaks. With that said,
by following the below steps, you can work to
improve your ACT Math score without breaking a
sweat.

1. When all else fails, guess the answer
• Since ACT scores are based on the number of
correct answers you fill in, there is no penalty
for guessing (unlike the SAT, which subtracts
points for incorrect answers). It is thus
important to answer every question on how to
write a reaction paper section. To make an
informed guess, eliminate all the obviously wrong
answers so you have a more likely chance of
guessing the right response.

2. Only use your calculator when needed
• Have you ever experienced a math test where
you're doing everything by hand, and then you see
the rest of your classmates whizzing through the
answers on a calculator? You may have felt
self-conscious in that moment, but doing math
problems by hand has its perks on the Math
section of the ACT. Since its questions are
designed to be solved in a minute or less, you
will have little time to redo questions after you
you clues on when to use your calculator so that
you can save your time. First, you should not use
in fraction form or involve radicals. You may be
thinking that it is easy to convert your decimal
answers into fractions, but this will take up
more time than you can afford.

3. Use paper space wisely
• Every math page will have a blank column on the
right-hand side for you to use when calculating
answers by hand. Feel free to use this space to
draw diagrams that were not drawn for you, and to
write out any equations necessary for completing
the problem. Nevertheless, it is important to
remember that only the answers you submit on the
necessary in the right-hand column so that you
can fill in the correct bubble on the answer page.

4. Keep the order of questions in mind
• We already know that you have 60 minutes to
complete 60 questions on the Math section of the
ACT. However, the ACT is designed to become more
and more challenging as the questions rise in
number. Thus, question number 59 is likely to be
more challenging than question number 2. When you
are timing yourself, keep this ordering effect in
mind, as you should leave more time to complete
the later answers than the earlier ones. When you
take practice tests, coach your mind to move
through the first half of the questions at a
speedier pace than the second half of the
questions. Find your timing groove so that you
can answer all questions comfortably. That said,
it is important that you do not rush through the
