The mathematics section of the **S**pecialized **H**igh **S**chools **A**dmissions **T**est (SHSAT) assesses, primarily, a test taker's knowledge of math facts and then, to a lesser extent, how deeply, widely, and quickly she can reason with that knowledge. Unfortunately for SHSAT test takers, current educational theory eschews the teaching/learning of facts—which is why high-priced test preparation programs proliferate. Our **Math Facts for the SHSAT** is 130 pages of charts, definitions, formulae, glossary, lists, patterns, properties, rules, terms, "tricks," all meticulously organized by topic from arithmetic to introductory algebra and geometry. Students studying for the SHSAT have found it to be an invaluable reference resource when solving practice problems. |
