    3433         Grade 9           1 credit      

    Prerequisite: Successful completion of accelerated Algebra with a final average of 83%+ and NYS Regents Algebra CC final exam score of 80%+.
     
    Geometry is the second course in mathematics for high school students. Within this course, students will have the opportunity to make conjectures about geometric situations and prove in a variety of ways, both formal and informal, that their conclusion follows logically from their hypothesis. Students will use the traditional tools of compass and straightedge.  Geometry is meant to lead students to an understanding that reasoning and proof are fundamental aspects of mathematics and something that sets it apart from the other sciences. The TI–83+ graphing calculator is required. Students will take the NYS Regents Geometry CC exam in June. This exam is the second of three math exams required for an Advanced Regents diploma.

    Applied Geometry is the second course in mathematics for students not pursuing an Advanced Regents Diploma. The primary goal of this course is to develop a deeper understanding of the basic concepts in geometry.  Select topics from Common Core Geometry will be areas of focus, such as parallel lines, quadrilateral proofs/properties, transformations, trigonometry, circles, volume and surface area. Students will relate and apply these concepts to other math related fields. Emphasis will be placed on connections to real-world situations.  A TI-83 + or scientific  calculator is required. Students will take a teacher made assessment in June.

    Prerequisite:  Successful completion of Honors Geometry and score of 80+ on NYS Regents Algebra CC exam.
     
    Algebra II is the upper-level capstone course of the three units of credit required for an Advanced Regents diploma (math portion).  This course is a continuation and extension of the two courses that precede it.  While developing the algebraic techniques that will be required of students who continue their study of mathematics, this course is also intended to continue developing alternative solution strategies and algorithms.  Technology will provide students the means to address a problem situation to which they might not otherwise have access.  The TI-83+ calculator is required.  Students will take the NYS Regents Algebra II CC exam in June.

  • AP COMPUTER SCIENCE

    Posted by:

    Grade 12          1 credit

    Suggested preparation: Successful completion of AP Computer Science Principles (Technology Department)

    AP Computer Science A is designed to be an introductory college-level course in computer science. It emphasizes object-oriented programming methodology with an emphasis on problem solving and algorithm development. The coursework will include the following topics: object-oriented program design, program implementation, program analysis, the study of standard data structures and abstraction, standard algorithms, and computing in context. Current offerings of the AP Computer Science A Exam require the use of Java (those sections of the exam that require the reading or writing of actual programs), and therefore the AP Computer Science A course focuses on Java for coding.  The course is based on numerous problem solving exercises, labs, and case studies, which require students to design and implement Java classes.  The course requires 40-50 hours of hands-on work in a computer lab.
