## ISEE Math Review – Units of Measurement

The United States uses what is known as the U.S. Customary Units, a variation of the Imperial system, for its measurement values. Most of the rest of the world uses the International System of Units, the modern iteration of the Metric system. The ERB will likely provide some conversions and values for U.S. Customary [...]

## ISEE Math Review – Types of Angles

An angle is formed when two rays share the same endpoint, which is called the vertex of the angle. In geometric notation, the vertex is the middle letter in the name of the angle. Each angle has a degree value, which is the measurement of the size of the angle, and the degree value [...]

## ISEE Math Review – Estimation

For the ISEE and other standardized tests with math sections, estimation is your friend. Estimation will reduce the amount of time you spend making calculations, which allows more time to complete difficult questions. Estimation is rounding a number up or down to make it easier to calculate, but the estimated number must be as [...]

## ISEE Math Review – Geometric Notation

Geometry is the branch of mathematics that encompasses the properties and relationships of shapes, such as points, angles, and solid figures. Like every other branch of mathematics, Geometry comes with its own set of notations. Types of Angles  An angle is formed when two rays share the same endpoint, which is called the vertex [...]

## ISEE Math Review – Linear Inequalities and Their Graphs

Now, graphing a linear inequality is very similar to graphing a linear equation, since you follow all the same rules for slope and the y‐intercept. However, the graph will look different. A linear equation has one input resulting in one output, while a linear inequality has one input resulting in many outputs. Essentially, the [...]

## ISEE Math Review – Triangle Types and Rules

Triangles are those handy‐dandy three‐sided polygons with which mathematicians have done so much work, particularly the right triangle. The most important thing to remember about all triangles is that the sum of their interior angles is 180°. Again, the sum of the interior angles of any triangle is 180°. Once more, the sum of [...]

## ISEE Math Review – Circles

A circle is a perfectly round geometric shape which you will see again and again in your studies of math concepts. You will need to have an understanding of its diameter, radius, circumference, area, arcs, and sectors. You will also work with objects that are tangent to a circle and what that means. Diameter [...]

## ISEE Math Review – Matrices

A collection of numbers (called entries) contained within a pair of [ ] brackets is called a matrix. A matrix is labeled by a variable, which is usually a capitalized letter. In a sense, matrices are like sets of data, except that a matrix is made up of rows and columns of data as [...]

## ISEE Math Review – Transformations of Functions

A transformation simply refers to moving the graph of a function around: If you want to move the line graph of y = 2x + 1 to the left or right, you increase or decrease the input. If you want to move the line graph of y = 2x + 1 up or down, [...]

## ISEE Math Review – Domain and Range

The set of all possible inputs for a function is called the domain, and the inputs fall on the x‐axis in a graph. The set of all possible outputs for a function is called the range, and the outputs fall on the y‐axis in a graph. If the domain has an input that is [...]
