 ## 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 – Matrix Multiplication, Standard Deviation, and Trigonometry

The Upper Level ISEE is used for application into 9th through 12th grade. Thus, the ISEE sometimes includes some higher level math concepts designed for students who have completed Algebra II or Pre‐Calculus. We have included three of these concepts so that you know what they look like so you can determine for yourself [...]

## ISEE Math Review – Solid Geometry: Surface Area and Volume

Triangles, polygons, and circles are all considered two‐dimensional objects and you’ve learned how to find the perimeter and area of these objects. You will also need to know how to analyze the measurements of their three‐dimensional counterparts, or solid geometry. For solid geometry, you will need to know the volume and the surface area [...]

## 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 – Polygons: Angles, Perimeter, and Area

Polygons are two‐dimensional shapes that are formed by three or more straight sides. You will be analyzing these geometric figures to find the total degree value of a polygon, the perimeter of a polygon, and the area of a polygon. The perimeter is the measurement of the sum of the side lengths of a [...]

## 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 – 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 – 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, [...]
