    INTERMEDIATE GEOMETRY/ALGEBRA 2

    A course designed to assist students who have not quite mastered the skills in Geometry. This course will review important topics in geometry to help students prepare to re-take the Geometry regents in January (required). Additionally, students will begin to study critical topics in Algebra 2 to prepare for Algebra 2/Trigonometry for the following year.

    1 unit of credit

    Prerequisite: Completion of Geometry with a grade of at least 65 and a non-passing grade on the Geometry regents.

    ALGEBRA 2/TRIGONOMETRY

    This course is the third of the math courses required for the NYS Regents Diploma. he course includes intermediate algebra topics, probability, statistics, and trigonometry. The Algebra 2/Trigonometry Regents exam is required. 

    1 unit of credit

    Prerequisite: Completion of Algebra 1 and Geometry

    ALGEBRA 2/TRIGONOMETRY WITH LAB

    Students recommended by their Geometry teachers as needing additional instruction to master the concepts of Algebra 2/Trigonometry will take this course which includes an extra period of Math on alternate days. Regents exam is required.

    1 unit of credit

    Prerequisite: Completion of Algebra 1 and Geometry and teacher recommendation

    ALGEBRA 2/TRIGONOMETRY HONORS

    This course will contain the third segment in a three year sequence as described by New York State.
    The accelerated pace of this course will be appropriate for only the most serious and mature mathematics students.

    1 unit of credit

    Prerequisite: Completion of Algebra 1 and Geometry Honors with a grade of 90 or above in each course and in each Regents with teacher recommendation.

    PRE-CALCULUS HONORS

    This course is intended for the student who plans to continue his/her study with AP Calculus in the future. Students who demonstrate a mastery of the topics in algebra and trigonometry should consider this course. Evidence of this mastery would be indicated by:

    1) A final average of "A" along with a Regents exam grade of at least 90 in Algebra 2 / Trigonometry.
    2) Teacher recommendation.

    Throughout the course the graphing of functions and relations will be emphasized since the mastery of these skills are essential to the calculus. Among the topics to be studied are: functions - absolute value, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, and multi-defined conic sections, polar coordinates, sequences and series, limits and continuity, derivatives and applications, and an introduction to integral calculus.

    The student should be able to extract application techniques from the concepts taught with minimal guidance from the teacher. Students will be expected to have a mastery of basic and intermediate textbook problems. Students should anticipate a higher level of challenge in the Pre-Calculus Honors class than in a Pre-Calculus class.

    The student will take a departmental final in June. 

    1 unit of credit

    Prerequisite: Grade of 90 or better in Algebra 2 / Trigonometry and teacher recommendation.
