Any student who in the 2013-14 school year or thereafter, regardless of grade of enrollment, begins her first commencement-level math course culminating in a Regents Exam June 2014 or thereafter must take the New York State CCLS mathematics Regents Exam. Most typically, the first course will be the Algebra 1 (Common Core).

A graphing calculator is required for each of the following courses. Please note that calculators with symbolic manipulation capabilities (built-in computer algebra systems), QWERTY keyboards, portable computers, handheld electronic devices capable of infrared electronic transmission and devices capable of wireless communication are not permitted for use. Each student is responsible for her own calculator.

A fourth year of Mathematics is expected of all students.

**Algebra I****Algebra I Honors**

*Departmental approval required*

The content standards associated with Algebra I are based on the New York State Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics and the PARCC Model Content Framework for Algebra I. Algebra I is associated with high school content standards within four conceptual categories: Number & Quantity, Algebra, Functions, and Statistics & Probability. Students are prepared for the NYS Algebra 1 (Common Core) Regents Exam which is taken in June.

*The honors course runs at an accelerated pace allowing for a more in-depth study of topics. The common core regents exam is required at the completion of each honors-level course.*

**Geometry****Geometry Honors**

*Departmental approval required*

The content standards associated with Geometry are based on the New York State Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics and the PARCC Model Content Framework for Geometry. Topics include: Congruence, Similarity, Right Triangles, Trigonometry, Circles, Expressing Geometric Properties with Equations, Geometric Measurement and Dimensions, and Modeling with Geometry. Students are prepared for the NYS Geometry (Common Core) Regents Exam which is taken in June.

*The honors course runs at an accelerated pace allowing for a more in-depth study of topics. The common core regents exam is required at the completion of each honors-level course.*

**Algebra 2/Trigonometry****Algebra 2/Trigonometry Honors**

*Departmental approval required*

The content standards associated with Algebra II are based on the New York State Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics and the PARCC Model Content Framework for Algebra II. Topics include: the Real Number System, Quantities, the Complex Number System, Seeing Structure in Expressions, Arithmetic with Polynomials and Rational Expressions, Creating Equations, Reasoning with Equations and Inequalities, Expressing Geometric Properties with Equations, Interpreting Functions, Building Functions, Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential Models, Trigonometric Functions, Interpreting Categorical and Quantitative Data, Making Inferences and Justifying Conclusions, Conditional Probability and the Rules of Probability. Students are prepared for the NYS Algebra II (Common Core) Regents Exam which is taken in June.

This course covers advanced algebra and advanced trigonometry including functions, conics, matrices; sequences and series, limits and derivatives.

This two semester course will cover Pre-calculus and Trigonometry (MTH 1050) and University Calculus I (MTH 1730C). Students will have the opportunity to earn up to six credits from St. John’s University. Topics covered in MTH 1050 include review of elementary algebra; functions and graphs; sets of linear equations; introduction to exponential and logarithmic functions; trigonometry. Topics covered in MTH 1730C include functions; limits; differentiation of algebraic and trigonometric functions; integration; applications.

This course includes an in-depth study of functions: polynomial, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic; their inverses; derivatives; integrals; and graph applications to area, volume, velocity and acceleration. All students must take the AP Exam in May.

This course includes an in-depth study of: techniques of integration, applications of integration, parametric, polar and vector-valued functions, sequences and series. All students must take the AP Exam in May.
