Introduction to SAT Math Level 2

The SAT Math Level 2 Subject Test covers the same material as the Mathematics Level 1 test — with the addition of trigonometry and elementary functions (precalculus). If you performed well in these courses, taking this test gives you the opportunity to highlight your abilities and showcase your interest in higher-level mathematics.

Anticipated Skills

  • Number and operations
  • Algebra and functions
  • Geometry and measurement (coordinate, three-dimensional, and trigonometry)
  • Data analysis, statistics and probability

Recommended Preparation

More than three years of college-preparatory mathematics, including two years of algebra, one year of geometry, and elementary functions (precalculus) or trigonometry or both.

Number and operations

  • Operations, ratio and proportion, complex numbers, counting, elementary number theory, matrices, sequences, series, vectors

Algebra and functions

  • Expressions, equations, inequalities, representation and modeling, properties of functions (linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, periodic, piecewise, recursive, parametric)

Geometry and measurement

  • Coordinate: Lines, parabolas, circles, ellipses, hyperbolas, symmetry, transformations, polar coordinates
  • Three-dimensional: Solids, surface area and volume (cylinders, cones, pyramids, spheres, prisms), coordinates in three dimensions
  • Trigonometry: Right triangles, identities, radian measure, law of cosines, law of sines, equations, double angle formulas

Data analysis, statistics, and probability

Mean, median, mode, range, interquartile range, standard deviation, graphs and plots, least squares regression (linear, quadratic, exponential), probability

Choosing Between Math Levels 1 and 2

If you have taken trigonometry or elementary functions (precalculus) or both, received grades of B or better in these courses, and are comfortable knowing when and how to use a scientific or graphing calculator, you should select the Level 2 test. If you are sufficiently prepared to take Level 2, but elect to take Level 1 in hopes of receiving a higher score, you may not do as well as you expect. You may want to consider taking the test that covers the topics you learned most recently, since the material will be fresh in your mind. You should also consider the requirements of the colleges and programs you are interested in.
