This is directly from the nysed.gov webpage about the high school courses: Will New York State be adopting the Traditional Pathway or the Integrated Pathway for Commencement level courses aligned to the NYS P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics ?
At its January 2011 meeting, the Board of Regents approved the Traditional Course Pathway for High School Mathematics Courses. The New York State Education Department has decided to use Appendix A at NYS P-12 Common Core Learning Standards <http://www.p12.nysed.gov/ciai/common_core_standards/> for districts to design high school mathematics courses (Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II) based on the P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics. The first administration of the Regents Examination in Algebra I will be in June 2014. The first administration of the Regents Examination in Geometry will be in June 2014. The first administration of the Regents Examination in Algebra II will be in June 2015. For further information on the timeline, please visit Common Core Learning Standards Timeline <http://engageny.org/resource/common-core-implementation-timeline/> Last Updated: July 20, 2012
Although, it seems like someone on here was stating that they had heard of some caveats with this (maybe at AMTNYS?), but that might have only been in reference to the +s and *s in the document. I can?t quite remember. When we go for training in Albany, they have not talked about the specifics with regard to high school yet.

I have also heard that they are not definitely based on the PARCC assessments. Has anyone heard otherwise?
My concern is that I still don't know exactly what topics are covered when..... I asked this earlier through this forum and I was referred to the PARCC information, but now I believe that NYS hasn't decided to use PARCC.
I am soooooo confused.

You are correct Evan, the Algebra and Geometry exams both change next year (13-14). I haven?t heard anything about the names of them.

(1) When CCLS is implemented in the HS, starting next year, do we know if the names of the Regents Exams will change to match the CCLS course names (Alg I, Geom, Alg II) or will NYS continue to call the exams Int Alg, Geom and A2T? I assume the names will change, but has SED decided that yet? (We're trying to decide on our math course names for next year.)
(2) I should know this, but I'm confused: when does Geometry become a CCLS course? I know 9th grade math becomes CC next year (2013-14), and I know 11th grade math becomes CC in 2014-2015. But is Geometry CC in 2013-14 or in 2014-15? I thought it was 2014-15, but this document seems to say it's 2013-14:
