As previously stated, there are 60 questions in the math section of the ACT exam. The math questions break down into the following areas:
- 24 pre-algebra and basic algebra questions
- 14 plane geometry questions
- 10 intermediate algebra questions
- 8 coordinate geometry questions
- 4 trigonometry questions
These questions will not be ordered from easiest to hardest. They will be mixed together. You are allowed to use a calculator to help you solve math questions on the ACT. If you can avoid a calculator on the easier math problems, you’ll save yourself some time since the section is timed into a 60-minute window. All the questions in the math section are worth the same amount of points, so make sure you answer the questions you are confident that you know.
