ACT Math – Intermediate Algebra Review

The ACT Math – Intermediate Algebra Review page focuses on the math concepts required to do well on the intermediate algebra problems encountered in the ACT Math test. If a student answered incorrectly some of the questions in the Intermediate Algebra Quiz, no need to worry. He/she will find on this page online resources to review or practice the topics he/she has trouble with.

Note: Go to the tools to check other review pages or quizzes.

Once the student has reviewed the skill he/she was struggling with, he/she should take the Intermediate Algebra Quiz again to make sure he/she can answer all the questions correctly.



The CollegeGuide4Parents Math Tools

 


 

The ACT Math test focuses on concepts of pre-algebra, elementary algebra, intermediate algebra, coordinate geometry, plane geometry and trigonometry. CollegeGuide4Parents created 7 short interactive quizzes (see below for a complete list) designed to help students quickly identify the skills they need to review in each of these areas. When they are done answering a quiz, students are presented with a customized report which shows the mistakes made, the correct answers and the topics they need to work on.

Students are also directed to a review page (see below for a list of all the review pages) which shows a compilation of online resources they can consult to quickly study the concepts they have difficulties with. Review pages also include links to practice worksheets for those needing to spend extra time on some topics. Finally, the review pages also provide links to ACT problems which the students can work on once they are ready to practice.
