SCIENCE ACT SPRING 2009

40 multiple choice items

35 minutes

Time to read each passage… ~2 minutes

Time to answer each item… ~30 seconds

Test measures interpretation, analysis,

evaluation, reasoning, and problem solving skills

which are required in the foundational science courses of

biology, chemistry, physics, and earth/space science

Calculators may NOT be used on the Science Test.


Slide6 l.jpg

ACT science emphasizes your ability to ‘THINK LIKE A SCIENTIST’

7 passages of scientific information presented in 3 formats

15 questions …data representation; 3 passages/5 items ea.(graphs, tables, and other schematic forms)

18 questions…research summaries; 3 passages/6 items ea. (descriptions of one or more related experiments)

7 questions… conflicting viewpoints; 1 passage/7 items (expressions of several related hypotheses or views that are inconsistent with one another)

Data Representation

  • Gauges the ability to read, interpret, and draw conclusions from ‘graphical’ data

  • Five common ways of presenting ‘graphical’ data

    • Tables

    • Line graphs

    • Bar graphs

    • Scatter plots

    • Illustrations

Slide8 l.jpg

Tables Appear Most Frequently

  • Tables appear in Data Representationand Research Summary sets

  • Students must connect table and figure numbers to questions.

Slide9 l.jpg

Independent Variable

The Independent Variable is changed or manipulated by the researcher.As the Independent Variable changes, we observe what happens.

The Independent Variable usually appears in the left column

Tables

Slide10 l.jpg

Tables

Dependent Variableis the responding variable.

The Dependent Variable changes in response to the changes that the researcher makes to the independent variable.

The Dependent Variable usually appears in the right column

Slide11 l.jpg

Tables

Dependent Variable “depends” on the independent variable;

It is what the researcher collects or measures

Independent Variablewhat the researcher sets up

Look for patterns: “As the number in the left column increases, the number in the right column _____ .”

Slide12 l.jpg

Line Graphs

Y-axis tracks dependent variable

X-axis tracks independent variable

“As the value of x increases, the value of y ___” or “When x equals___, y equals___”

ACT MME SUCCESS

  • Pace yourself

  • Read the question

  • Go back to the passage

  • Scan the passage to find the answer

  • Look at the choices

  • Answer the questions that are easy for you, and then go back to the hard questions

  • Answer the ALLthe questions
