This oneyear course prepares students for Algebra 1 and the regents that follow. This course, aligned to the Common Core Learning Standards, is considered an Algebra 1 course that is tailored to the students needs with more emphasis on basics and understanding. Students will study linear equations and inequalities, linear regression models, quadratic and exponential expressions (including rational exponents), quadratic functions, and formalize and extend the concept of functions (including function notation, domain and range, and exploration of many types of functions). Students take the Common Core Algebra Regents exam in June and can retake the regents the following year if not successful.
This oneyear course counts towards a student’s mathematical commencement requirements and meets New York State’s mathematics requirements towards earning a Regents Diploma or Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation. This course, aligned to the Common Core Learning Standards, is intended to be the first of a threeyear sequence. Students will study linear equations and inequalities, linear regression models, quadratic and exponential expressions (including rational exponents), quadratic functions, and formalize and extend the concept of functions (including function notation, domain and range, and exploration of many types of functions). Students are required to take the Common Core Algebra Regents exam in June.
Prerequisites: None
The honors course runs at an accelerated pace to allow for indepth study of topics.

Prerequisites: Placement is based on the Entrance Exam and T.A.C.H.S. Exam scores.
This oneyear course counts towards a student’s mathematical commencement requirements and meets New York State’s mathematics requirements towards earning a Regents Diploma or a Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation. It is aligned to the Common Core Learning Standards and is intended to be the second year of a threeyear sequence. This course employs an integrated approach to the study of connecting algebra to geometric relationships and proofs. Properties of triangles, quadrilaterals, and circles will receive particular attention. Congruence and similarity of triangles will be established using appropriate theorems; transformations including rotations, reflections, translations, and glide reflections and coordinate geometry will be used to establish and verify geometric relationships; and topics in trigonometry extending to threedimensional geometry will be explored. Students are required to take the Common Core Geometry Regents exam in June.
Prerequisites: Successful completion of Algebra 1 or Algebra 1 Honors.

This is a oneyear course intended to be the third course in mathematics for high school, and meets the requirements for an Advanced Regents Diploma. It builds on students' work with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions. Students extend their repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions. Students work closely with the expressions that define the functions and continue to expand and hone their abilities to model situations and to solve equations, including solving quadratic equations over the set of complex numbers and solving exponential equations using the properties of logarithms. Students have the option of taking the Algebra 2 Common Core Regents in June.
Prerequisites: Successful completion of Algebra 1 or Algebra 1 Honors and Geometry or Geometry Honors.

This course offers the study of the Calculus AB curriculum, as set forth by The College Board, to students who have a thorough knowledge of college preparatory mathematics, including algebra, axiomatic geometry, trigonometry, and analytic geometry, rectangular and polar coordinates, equations and graphs, line, and conics. Calculus AB is a course in introductory calculus with elementary functions.
The scope of the course includes topics relating to functions and graphs, limits and continuity, differential calculus, and integral calculus. Students taking this course are expected to put in many hours of active reading of the textbook and solving problems outside of the classroom meeting. The purchase of a TI83 Graphing Calculator is a requirement for this course. Students enrolled in this course take the AP examination in May.
Students will investigate real world situations using mathematical tools and lenses. The topics of this course reinforce students' prior knowledge of modeling and functions, and they examine scenarios through multiple representations. Topics include linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions, limits, rates of change, and polar coordinates.
"They will learn how to observe, explore, and build mathematical meaning from dynamic systems, an important practice for thriving in an everchanging world. AP Precalculus prepares students for higherlevel mathematics and science courses."  College Board
This is a course designed for students wishing to explore practical business problems and realworld personal financial issues. Topics in the first semester include investments, the stock market, business startups, banking, credit cards, insurance, income taxes, business planning, home buying, and budgeting are the framework in which students will explore and master mathematical concepts and skills such as data analysis (scatter plots, averages, frequency distributions, matrices); fitting data to equations; linear, quadratic, exponential, and piecewise models with limits; interest formulas (simple, compound, and continuous); and present and future value. In the second semester, students will experience an integrated approach to precalculus and calculus. Elements of algebra and analytic geometry are necessary to study calculus of one variable. Functions, limits, continuity, differentiation of algebraic functions, applications of differentiation will be introduced and applied to real world problems.
