Are there different regulations for Math A and Integrated Algebra? I thought this was more cut and dried but I have received differing answers from assorted people. Is there a separate Regents rating guide for the new Regents exams or do all the same rules apply regarding things like rounding and this trialanderror issue?

Sorry,
I guess I should have read the whole question...For Math A, three above and three below...
For integrated, three trials and appropriate checks for full credit.
