I've been practicing for the ACT math section, and I'm just curious if there's any calculus on the test? I'm not too great at it, so I'm hoping there isn't. Can anyone confirm this for me?

You're in luck! The ACT math section does not test calculus. The topics covered on the ACT math section are primarily from pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. The majority of the questions will be about algebra and geometry, with a smaller number of trigonometry questions and even fewer questions on statistics and probability.

If you're worried about the math section, it's essential to focus your practice and review on pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry concepts, since those are what you'll encounter the most on the test. Some specific topics include linear equations, factoring, quadratic equations, coordinate geometry, triangles, circles, and transformations.

Keep in mind that the ACT math section does expect you to be familiar with certain formulas, so I recommend reviewing them before taking the test. Make sure to also practice solving problems under time constraints, as pacing is crucial for the ACT.

Good luck with your ACT preparation!
