The Math topics including the previous topics plus additional ones. This is most of them:

For Grade 8 SHSAT (and Grade 9): time, mean, rates, proportions and ratios, slope, linear equations, rational numbers, perimeter, area, volume, circumference, "percent" problems including discounts/taxes/etc, fractions, decimals (including repeating), geometrically similar object and their scaling, number line including scaling and negative units, absolute value, adding and subtracting involving negative and positives, algebra involving one variable of various sorts, rules and truisms involving intersecting lines, circles/triangles/quadrilaterals/polygons/cubes/right prisms, angles and their sums/interior/exterior/within polygons, parallel lines, population inferences, word problems, multi-step solutions, chance and probability including factorials, from lists and data sets, unit conversions, parallelogram, trapezoid, octagon, rectangle, square, order of operations, numeric patterns, prime number, prime factorization, mixed fractions, fraction ordering, conversion to/from decimals/fractions

For Grade 9 SHSAT: graphing/slope/intercept/distance, number line, FOIL, solving linear equations, inequalities, shaded regions, using functions including comparing/rate of change/interpreting/input/output, geometric similarity and congruence, Pythagorean Theorem, right triangles, translations/rotations/reflections/dilations, more slope/coordinates/grids/distances, more cones/cylinders/spheres/volume, radical numbers, exponents, square and cube roots, scientific and decimal notations and conversions thereof, outliers

what were ur 2nd and 3rd choices?

9. I put Bronx Science second

10. Would anyone liken the 9th grade math topics to the Algebra 1 regents? And is the ELA just a little harder in terms of vocab and difficulty of passages? thanks
