• INTEGRATED ALGEBRA

    This course is for all ninth graders with the exception of accelerated students. Students will study the first of a three-year sequence that is aligned with the New York State Core Curriculum and learning standards. Students will learn content in the areas of numbers and operations, patterns, functions and algebra; geometry and spatial sense; measurements; and data analysis, statistics, and probability. Students will acquire and use their mathematical knowledge through the processes of problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, connections, and multiple representations. Upon successful completion of the course, students will earn one unit of credit in mathematics. The new regents exam in Integrated Algebra will be taken in June. Students in this course will take Geometry or Geometry Honors the following year.

     

     

    INTEGRATED ALGEBRA - A

    This is the first year of a 2 year program for students that need more time to complete the Integrated Algebra curriculum. A student that receives a score of 1 or a low 2 on the 8th grade mathematics examination and/or their Middle School teacher recommendation will take this course. Students will study the first of a three-year sequence that is aligned with the New York State Core Curriculum and learning standards. Students will learn content in the areas of numbers and operations; patterns, functions and algebra; geometry and special sense; measurements and data analysis, statistics, and probability. Students will acquire and use their mathematical knowledge through the processes of problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, connections, and multiple representations. Upon successful completion of the course, students will earn one unit of credit in mathematics. Students in this course will take INTEGRATED ALGEBRA – B the following year.

    EXAMINATION: Local examination in June

     

     

    ALGEBRA 2/TRIGONOMETRY

    This is the third in a three-course integrated sequence of college preparatory mathematics prepared and recommended by the New York State Education Department. Within this course, the number system will be extended to include imaginary and complex numbers. The families of functions to be studied will include polynomials, absolute value, radical, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Problem situation involving direct and indirect variation will be solved. Problems resulting in systems of equations will be solved graphically and algebraically. Algebraic techniques will be developed to facilitate rewriting mathematical expressions into multiple equivalent forms. Data analysis will be extended to include measures of dispersion and the analysis of regression that model functions studied throughout this course. Associated correlation coefficients will be determined, using technology tools and interpreted as a measure of strength of the relationship. Arithmetic and geometric sequences will be expressed in multiple forms, and arithmetic and geometric series will be evaluated. Binomial experiments will provide a basis for the study of probability theory and the

    normal probability distribution will be analyzed and used a a n approximation for these binomial experiments. Right triangle trigonometry will be expanded to include the investigation of circular functions. Problem situations requiring the use of trigonometric equations and identities will also be investigated
