Welcome to the Gruber Math Strategies!
Critical thinking is the ability to think clearly in order to solve problems and answer questions of all types—for example, SAT questions. Educators who are deeply involved in research on Critical-Thinking Skills tell us that such skills are straightforward, practical, teachable, and learnable. These strategies have the potential to raise your SAT scores dramatically. Since each correct SAT question gives you an additional 10 points on average, it is reasonable to assume that if you can learn and then use these valuable SAT strategies, you can boost your SAT scores phenomenally!
Important Note on the Allowed Use of Calculators on the SAT
Although the use of calculators on the SAT will be allowed, using a calculator may be sometimes more tedious, when in fact you can use another problem-solving method or shortcut. So you must be selective on when and when not to use a calculator on the test.
