Hi,

We just talked about this yesterday. In the past we had four options for our kids:
1. Consumer Math - Now will be lower than Geometry so that will not work for most of our kids. - Probably will phase out.
2. BOCES Math - Most of our Pre-Algebra and Algebra kids (first two years)
3. 2.5 Year Math B option - Will be gone
4. Math B - Will change to Algebra 2 and Trig - Students in this class get 3 GCC credits for Math 136. This will stay the same.
5. New option - Replaces our 2.5 year math B option. Students will get 3 GCC credits for Math 106 (Algebra 2) - No trig in this class. Then if they want 3 more credits and try the regents for advanced regents they can take Algebra 2 and trig their senior year.

We all seemed to be most happy with this option. I think it is the best option for the kids future as well.

Thanks for asking,
Leslie Tanner

Please respond to
nysmathab@mathfor
um.org






Have any schools come up with a course for the third year of math for those
students that take a 2-year integrated algebra and do not go on to geometry
or students that take one year of algebra and geometry, but do not wish to
go on to algebraII/trig? I would be interested in seeing course outlines
for these courses to help my school develope this third year course.
