#### The Math Department

Following New York State Regents Common Core Curriculum in Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II, math courses culminate annually with Regents exams. Students are expected to identify and justify mathematical relationships, formally and informally. Students who have already mastered Common Core Algebra I in 8th grade will begin with Common Core Geometry.

ALGEBRA

Topics include algebraic expressions and modeling, polynomials, functions, probability, and statistics, among others.

GEOMETRY

Topics of discussion include congruency, transformations, similarity, introductory

trigonometry, 3-dimensional geometry, conic sections and geometric modeling.

ALGEBRA II (TRIGONOMETRY)

The capstone course of the new Common Core Regents sequence, includes advanced

algebraic techniques, trigonometric functions, advanced probability and statistics and

other applications. Students will interpret categorical and quantitative data, making

inferences and justifying conclusions.

BUSINESS MATH

Elective

Students learn how businesses and households make financial decisions. The course

teaches an understanding of basic financial concepts, and the math skills involved.

AP CALCULUS AB

Elective

This course is for those who have completed Trigonometry. Calculus AB consists of work in differential and integral calculus and related topics.

AP CALCULUS BC

Elective

This advanced course continues and extends the work completed in Calculus AB.
