The SAT is a national college entrance exam for four-year college programs in all American Universities. SAT mathematics tests consist of 60 multiple-choice questions that must be answered in 50 minutes. The test is designed to test reasoning and problem solving skills that are utilized to solve mathematical problems.

The test will also requires students to select tools and computational strategies to investigate mathematical ideas and to solve problems and make connections among mathematical concepts and procedures, and relate mathematical ideas to situations or phenomena drawn from other contexts.
