What is mathematics? There are many definitions floating around, but one could argue that it is a language we use to describe and explain certain aspects of our world. It has its own set of vocabulary and symbols, and we can use these to create sentences and statements. As long as we follow the appropriate “grammar” rules, these sentences will mean the same thing to each person who encounters them — as long as that person knows the language! Math can be learned, in other words, as a second language!

While a clear improvement, the new and revised SAT remains problematic. It will still emphasize speed — quick recall and time management — over subject knowledge. Despite evidence that writing is the single most important skill for success in college, the essay will be optional. The biggest problem is that, while the content will be new, the underlying design will not change.
Are you interested in using Biltmore Tutoring’s parent portal to monitor your student’s progress? The parent portal is a quick and easy way for parents to look back at past session notes, update student information (including payment info), and to more generally keep a finger on the pulse of their student’s improvements through tutoring.
Other factors count — including, of course, a student’s ACT and SAT scores — but the body of work that a student has developed in high school is what matters most when college admissions counselors begin looking at a student’s admissions packet.
