The ISEE Mathematics Achievement section is among the five sections on the ISEE Test. On each of the ISEE levels, the material in the ISEE Math section is grade appropriate. To learn more about the ISEE Mathematics Achievement, continue reading.

The CogAT test pack provided my son with challenging questions, which prepared him to perform well on the test.

We got the CogAT tests for my daughter. I loved how quickly I was able to access the tests after purchasing the product and how easy it was to use! It familiarized my daughter with the format of the test, allowing her to feel calm for the test.

We purchased the NYC G&T pack. We are extremely happy to have purchased the product. It was totally clear and simple and my son felt prepared because we used your pack to prepare. We are very, very happy!

The ISEE Math section assesses mathematical skills learned from the start of a student’s schooling. All of the questions in both of the ISEE Math sections, Quantitative Reasoning and Mathematics Achievements, are associated with the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). The following NCTM branches are used as the basis for the ISEE Mathematics Achievement section:

Numbers and Operations

Algebra

Geometry

Measurement

Data Analysis & Probability

Problem Solving

Below, you can see an example of an ISEE Math question from an Upper Level ISEE test:

ISEE Upper level Math Practice Question #1

How many times does 2 appear in the prime factorization of 48?

Answer & Explanation ▼ | ▲

The correct answer is 4.

ISEE Upper level Math Practice Question #2

If (3.75 + 1.25)𝑎 = (11.03 − 1.03)𝑎, what is the value of 𝑎?

Answer & Explanation ▼ | ▲

The correct answer is 0. In this problem, since 3.75 + 1.25 = 5, the left side of the equation equals 5𝑎. Since 11.03 − 1.03 = 10, the right side of the equation equals 10𝑎. The result is: 5𝑎 = 10𝑎. Assuming that 𝑎 ≠ 0, divide both sides of the equation by 𝑎, and conclude that 5 = 10, which is a false equation. Thus, the only case in which 5𝑎 = 10𝑎 is when 𝑎 = 0, and then 5 × 0 = 10 × 0 = 0, and the correct answer is 0.

This section, unlike the ISEE Quantitative Reasoning section, may actually require students to perform calculations in order to solve problems. Calculators and scratch paper are not permitted on the test. Student are permitted to write in the test booklet.

ISEE Tips - Math Achievement

Hint: Make sure to read the whole question and examine any related material (such as graphic images) and try to calculate the problem and determine the answer before looking at the answer choices.

Hint: The level of math on the ISEE Mathematics Achievement section may be a higher level of math that you have not yet learned. If you come across a question that you do not understand, guess an answer and continue. If you somewhat understand the question, mark it and come back to it if you have time.

Hint: Many of the wrong answer choices reflect common mistakes. Read each question carefully and more than one time. Remember to CHECK YOUR WORK!
