Re: NYS Mathematics Regents Exams

I teach in a NYC public school, and a year or so ago they gave me four preps. When I demurred, they told me that I could teach the geometry and honors geometry as the same class so it wouldn't be any more work than three preps. I pointed out that our contract specifically notes that honors and nonhonors are different classes, and I said that I didn't want to be called on to explain how I was differentiating the two classes in the future when all I had was a verbal "teach them the same" from the admin.
Of course, the NYC teaching contract is a small book. :)
In actual practice, there are clearly things in common, but I assigned different homework, used some different activities, gave different tests, and otherwise handle honors and nonhonors as two separate preps.
