This course is designed to strengthen students basic math skills in preparation for the Algebra exam. Students will be introduced to concepts including: operations with fractions, decimals and integers, probability and statistics, basic geometry and inequalities, and graphing linear equations, as well as all course material from the regular Algebra course.
Algebra (Regents Exam required)
This course is designed to teach the Common Core Algebra standards that align with topics such as Foundations for Algebra, Solving Equations, Solving Inequalities, An Introduction to Functions, Linear Functions, Systems of Equations and Inequalities, Exponents and Exponential Functions, Polynomials and Factoring, Quadratic Functions and Equations, Radical Expressions and Equations, Rational Expressions and Functions, and Data Analysis and Probability. These topics will prepare students for a regents examination in June.
Topics include Basic Geometry, Coordinate Geometry, linear and quadratic systems, Locus, Transformational Geometry, Probability, Statistics, Algebraic Fractions, and Mathematical Systems.
Statistics (College Now)
Everyday we are confronted with statistical terms in sporting events, news programs, textbooks, the Internet, newspapers and on the radio. This course is suitable for students who are interested in a wide variety of subjects. Whether you want to go on into advertising, business, science, teaching, sports or psychology, you will need to know the tools of statistics. You will learn about the organization of data, measures of central tendency, probability theory, distributions, hypothesis testing, and regression and correlation. You may take this course for high school credit and possible college credit.
Mathematics as applied to financial operations. Topics include: recordkeeping, interest and discount, credit and payments, loans, checking and savings, insurance, taxes, financial analysis, investments, and business operations. An integral part of this course includes real-world applications which answers the age-old question of “When am I ever going to use this?” This class can be used as a 3rd or 4th credit in math.
Geometry (Regents Exam required)
Students will prepare to take the Common Core Geometry regents exam in June. The emphasis is on the meaning of geometry and the application of mathematics in a technological world. Topics include Constructions, Congruent and Similar figures, Transformational Geometry (both with and without coordinates), basic Trigonometry, Linear systems, Circles and Geometric and Coordinate Proofs.
Algebra II (Regents Exam required)
(Prerequisite: Algebra, Geometry)
Common Core Algebra II will focus on Functions as the Cornerstones of Algebra, Linear Functions, Equations and their Algebra, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Sequences and Series, Quadratic Functions and their Algebra, Transformations of Functions, Radicals and the Quadratic Formula, Complex Numbers, Polynomial and Rational Functions, The Circular Functions, Probability, and Statistics. Students will follow the Common Core Algebra II standards set forth by the New York State Education Department to prepare for the Common Core Algebra II Regents Examination.
Pre-Calculus (College Now)
A more in-depth study of several topics introduced in Trigonometry. Topics include: Polynomial functions and their graphs, Exponential and Logarithmic functions including introduction of the natural base, e, and natural logarithms, Trigonometry, Analytic Geometry, Matrices, Limits, Analytic Geometry, and Differentiation. Emphasis will be placed on several topics that are used extensively in Calculus. A graphing calculator is recommended for this course.
Calculus (College Now)
This course will give you a leg up on the incoming college freshman class. Calculus is an essential mathematical discipline for the sciences, engineering, computer studies and a host of other fields. You will learn about the Cartesian plane, limits and the continuity of functions, definitions of derivative, formulas for differentiation of algebraic functions and integral and integration techniques. You may take this course for high school credit and possible college credit.
