ISEE Math Test Practice

The ISEE Mathematics Achievement section is one of the five key components of the ISEE Test, tailored specifically to match the academic level appropriate for each grade. This section tests a range of mathematical skills that are crucial for academic success. If you want to know what the ISEE Mathematics Achievement entails, keep reading to gain a thorough understanding.

The ISEE Mathematics Achievement section tests the math skills and concepts that students have been learning throughout their school years up until that point. All the questions align with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards in six key areas:

- Numbers and Operations
- Algebra
- Geometry
- Measurement
- Data Analysis & Probability
- Problem Solving

Below, you can see an example of a Whole Numbers ISEE Math question:

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

Wrong

Correct!

Wrong

Wrong

The correct answer is B: 4.

Below, you can see an example of an Alegrbraic Concepts ISEE Math question:

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

Correct!

Wrong

Wrong

Wrong

**First, let's simplify the numbers inside the parentheses:**

5a = 10a (because 3.75 + 1.25 = 5 and 11.03 - 1.03 = 10)

**Now, here's the key point:**

For the equation to hold true, the values on each side of the (=) sign must be equal. However, if a has any value other than 0, we have an interesting situation:

**Dividing both sides by a (assuming a ≠ 0) would result in:**

5 = 10

This is clearly not true. Mathematically, 5 cannot be equal to 10.

The only way for both sides to be equal is if a is 0.

**In that case:**

(5 x 0) = (10 x 0)

This is true because any number multiplied by 0 equals 0.

**Therefore, the only value of a that makes the equation true is A = 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.

**Here are some key things to know about the Math Achievement section:**

- For some questions, you'll need to perform calculations to get the right answer. It's not just identifying the correct choice.
- This test focuses on understanding the concepts, not trying to trick you. While the answer choices might resemble errors you've seen before, all the questions themselves are straightforward.
- You may need to know certain grade-appropriate math terminology from the NCTM standards.
- Some questions involve converting between measurement units within the U.S. standard system (inches to feet, etc.) - those conversions will be provided.
- Metric conversions (cm to m, etc.) are not provided.
- The questions assess your ability to solve math problems aligned to what you've learned in those six NCTM areas based on your grade level.

**Read Carefully:**

- Don't rush! Read each question slowly and carefully.
- If there are charts, graphs, or pictures, study them closely before looking at the answer choices.

**Work Through Information:**

- Don't jump to conclusions! Work through the information in the question to find the answer, then look for it in the choices.

**Double Check Your Work:**

- Double check your work. Some answer choices are common mistakes that people make when solving that type of problem.

**Manage Difficult Questions:**

- If you get stuck on a question, don't panic! You will not be penalized for a wrong answer or a skipped question. Answer the questions you feel comfortable with first.
- If you have time at the end, you can go back and try the skipped questions again with fresh eyes.

**Keep Moving Forward:**

- The most important things are to read carefully, check your work, and keep moving ahead if a question stumps you. There is no negative marking or points deducted for wrong answers or blanks.

**Stay Calm and Confident:**

- Stay calm and confident. This is a chance to show off all the awesome math skills you've been learning!
