We are offering a new Biology 1 course next year which is, as the name implies, the first year of a two year Bio course. It is designed for our weaker freshmen. Our plan is to incorporate a LOT of relevant math into the course in order to boost the Algebra scores. All 9th graders are teamed, and take the Algebra Regents at the end of 9th grade. I have the AIMS and SIMMS resources, as well as NCTM and NSTA resources. If you are aware of any other resources, websites, activities, programs, etc, I would appreciate you emialing me the info. Thanks.

Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

I was talking about a long time ago. I mentioned that it was in the 90s. I did not mention that I had called the Math Bureau (when it still existed although in skeletal form) and was given permission to do what we did.
It actually saved a kid from failure once when something went wrong at the state's end and his whole Part II (the 40 multiple choice) was either not marked or some other thing occurred. They accepted the Scantron that the school had done.

There is a paragraph in the documents that come regarding the Regents that students are PROHIBITED from filling out a second answer sheet.
