I would make this class VERY calculator dependent. Teach them all the
little tricks that can help them check their answers and answer multiple choice
questions without showing work.

In no particular order:

simplifying and performing operations with radicals
solving equations (using the graphing calculator)
everything about graphing linear equations (using the graphing calculator
to identify slope, equation of a line y=mx+b, finding solution sets)

Questions in these areas frequently appear on Part 1. Remember - this
regents can be passed on Part 1 alone if a student can get approximately 17-18
correct multiple choice answers correct. Additional topics can be taught
very quickly as you review for the regents (there is always one scientific
notation question - done on calculator, etc.)

Good luck!
