  • This paper introduces GEOS, the first automated system to solve unaltered SAT geometry questions by combining text understanding and diagram interpretation. [...] Key Method GEOS then feeds the description to a geometric solver that attempts to determine the correct answer. In our experiments, GEOS achieves a 49% score on official SAT questions, and a score of 61% on practice questions. 1 Finally, we show that by integrating textual and visual information, GEOS boosts the accuracy of dependency and semantic…Expand Abstract
