ACT Prep Basics - ACT and PreACT TEST is Tuesday, March 23

      1. ACT science test does not test science knowledge, it tests your skills at

          • Interpreting data on graphs

          • Scientific Method and Principles of Science

          • How scientific theories disagree with each other

      2. Format

          • 7 Passages

          • 40 Questions

          • 35 Minutes

      3. How to score well on the Science ACT

          • Practice, practice, practice (I recommend CrackACT because it is free and easy to use)

          • Check your answers on practice tests and examine why they are correct or incorrect

          • Time yourself with 7 passages and 40 questions (time can be a problem during the test)

          • Make homework for yourself to practice ACT problems - put it on your calendar

Assignment: ACT Prep Test

Rules:

        1. You need a pencil and a piece of scratch paper

        2. Phones need to be put away and turn off (silenced)

        3. This practice test is NOT timed. It has 7 Passages (40 questions). During the ACT/Pre-ACT, you will need to complete this many questions in 35 minutes!

        4. The practice test is broken up into 3 sections so you can submit your answers and evaluate your score on each section - be sure you look back over your whole test to see which answer was correct - this is how you learn!!!

        • Sophie Randak graduated from Senior High a few years ago and is a Professor's assistant in a Chemistry Lab at MSU-Bozeman. An image that she took of an experiment they are working on was selected to represent MSU in the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure's 2020 image contest. The image is called "Purple Rain". She didn't ask us to go to the site and vote for their project but I think it would be awesome if we all voted for her to support a former Bronc Chemistry student who is doing amazing things in science!
