We'll probably go with giving the test in the middle of PreCalculus. Optimally, I'd like to do away with all Regents above IA and hope to discuss this in the future, but for now it's temporary fix.

We have had this discussion a few times within our district and I'm wondering what other people think. Everyone keeps talking about how packed the A2/Trig curriculum is and how so much of it is PreCalculus material. Has anyone else considered teaching A2/Trig as a 1 1/2 year course (I know it was rough as Math A/Math B) giving the Regents in January and then finishing the PreCalc course from January to June?
