  • CC ALGEBRA I-A

The first half of Common Core Algebra I covered over the entire year.  A school final exam is taken at year’s end.  

CREDIT: 1.0  FINAL ASSESSMENT: LOCAL EXAM


  • CC ALGEBRA I-B

The second half of Common Core Algebra I covered over the entire year.  Students will be required to take the Common Core Algebra Regents Exam at the end of this course.

CREDIT:1.0   FINAL ASSESSMENT: COMMON CORE ALGEBRA REGENTS


  • CC ALGEBRA I

Students will study the NYS Algebra I Common Core syllabus. Algebra I is the first of three high school regents courses. The focus of the course is to build on the students’ concrete reasoning experiences developed in earlier grades.  The course includes the following units of study: the real number system and its properties; algebraic expressions, linear equations and inequalities; identifying and modeling functions, including linear, quadratic, exponential, absolute value, square root, piecewise and step functions; systems of equations; translations of functions; identification of roots (zeros) and their significance; arithmetic and geometric sequences; polynomials; factoring; quadratic equations; and the analysis of statistical data. The use of calculators is an integral part of this course and a TI84+ graphing calculator is required.   Students taking this course will take the Algebra I Common Core Regents exam in June.   After the completion of the course and passing the regents, students will receive high school credit.

  • CC ALGEBRA II

This is a one-year course preparing students who have passed Common Core Geometry for the Common Core Algebra II Regents exams.  This course meets the requirements for an Advanced Regents Diploma. The topics include rational, quadratic, polynomial, radical, exponential and logarithmic functions, operations with rational, irrational and complex numbers, sequence and series, solving exponential equations using the properties of logarithms, unit circle trigonometry, circular functions, probability, statistics, and inferences and conclusions from data.

  • CC GEOMETRY

The high school Geometry course is designed to align with the Common Core Curriculum.  The core is made up of 5 modules covering the following topics: Congruence, Proof & Constructions; Similarity, Proof & Trigonometry; Extending to Three Dimensions; Connecting Algebra and Geometry through Coordinates; and Circles with and Without Coordinates.  The course will be completed with the student passing the NYS Geometry regents exam. Prerequisite: Algebra I or Algebra 1-A and Algebra 1-B

CREDIT:1.0  FINAL ASSESSMENT: COMMON CORE GEOMETRY REGENTS


  • GEOMETRY NR (NON-REGENTS)

This is a one year course designed for

students who have passed CC Algebra I Regents.  Only a portion of the NYS Geometry curriculum will be covered. Topics will include fundamentals of congruence and similarity, right triangle trigonometry, and coordinate geometry.  Although there will be no formal proofs, students will be expected to justify their answers by applying the same theorems used in Regents Geometry course. 

CREDIT: 1.0  FINAL ASSESSMENT: LOCAL EXAM



  •  PRE-CALCULUS

A variety of topics in college level mathematics including advanced Algebra, Trigonometry, Analytic Geometry and Calculus.  Students will be required to take a local school exam at the end of this course. Prerequisite: Algebra II/Trigonometry

CREDIT: 1.0  FINAL ASSESSMENT: LOCAL EXAM



  • ADVANCED PLACEMENT CALCULUS

A full year of college level calculus is covered.  Limits, derivatives, applications of derivatives, integration, and techniques of integration are studied in depth.  Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus

CREDIT:1.0  FINAL ASSESSMENT: AP EXAM



  • COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS-MATHEMATICS

This is a half year course designed to prepare students for college level mathematics and  using mathematics in the workplace. Concepts covered in this course include number sense, operations with rational, rational numbers and expressions, linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, systems of equations in two variables,  properties of exponents, compounding interest formula, and exponential functions.

CREDIT: 0.5  FINAL ASSESSMENT: LOCAL EXAM



  • COLLEGE STATISTICS (SUNY ALBANY)

This college level course provides students a complete introduction into probability models and statistical methods for analyzing data.  This course is capped at 5 students. If more than 5 students sign up for the course a lottery will be held. Prerequisite: Common Core Algebra II

CREDIT: 1.0  FINAL ASSESSMENT: LOCAL EXAM



  • PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS (ELECTIVE)

This college preparation course provides students and introduction into a variety of topics.  The probability topics covered will include organization, analysis, and regression models. Students will be required to take a local exam at the end of the course. 

CREDIT: 1.0  FINAL ASSESSMENT: LOCAL EXAM


  • BUSINESS MATH

Research has shown that high school students are growing into adults with little, if any, financial knowledge/skills to keep them out of financial trouble. Young adults now have the second highest rate of bankruptcy. The average credit card debt for 18-34 year olds rose 55% between 1992 and 2001. Nearly a quarter of their incomes are spent on debt repayment (Parrish, 2005). The Financial Literacy course will assist students with developing the necessary financial skills to succeed and participate in the American dream. Students will develop positive money management skills, create a financial plan for the future and help you achieve your financial goals.
