Re: Third year of math

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 PreAlgebra 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

Have any schools come up with a course for the third year of math for those students that take a 2year 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. ******************************************************************* * To unsubscribe from this mailing list, email the message * "unsubscribe nysmathab" to majordomo@mathforum.org * * Read prior posts and download attachments from the web archives at * http://mathforum.org/kb/forum.jspa?forumID=338 *******************************************************************
