ALGEBRA I (Common Core):
The focal point of this course is the algebra content strand. Algebra provides tools and ways of thinking that are necessary for solving problems in a wide variety of disciplines such as science, business, fine arts, and technology. This course will assist students in developing skills and processes needed to successfully solve problems in a variety of settings. Some topics we will study are: real number systems, algebraic expressions, equation solving, operations with polynomials, factoring, quadratics, graphing, and radical expressions. This course culminates with the New York State Common Core Algebra I Regents Examination.

Westchester Community College-Intro to College Math:
The purpose of this seniorlevel course is to prepare students for college math – specifically the SUNY WCC math proficiency placement test. Students will review multiple math skills from elementary operations to SAT/ACT level problems, with the objective being to ensure readiness for their upcoming college math placement exam. There is a comprehensive listing of topics for the first phase of this course at the end of this syllabus, but the topics everyone will study are; Whole Numbers, Introduction to Algebra, Integers, Expressions and Linear Equations, Fractions, Decimals, Measurment, Fundamentals of Graphing, Solving Quadratic Equations, Factoring Polynomials, Ratios, Proportion and Percent, and Finance and Business Math.  All exam questions will be student generated response type questions – there will be no multiple choice questions or essays.  Also, there will be some parts of the course that prohibit the use of calculators.  A local final examination is required, and students who are successful on that exam will be exempt from the college placement exam for SUNY WCC incoming freshman.

GEOMETRY (Common Core):

The Geometry curriculum is firmly rooted in the Common Core Learning Standards and College/Career readiness. The curriculum focuses on 10 Units and replaces the Regents Geometry course. Topics that will be addressed include the study of transformations and the role they play in defining congruence, dilations and similarity transformations, similarity within right triangles and trigonometry. Extending 2-D formulas to an understanding of 3-D formulas for solids, geometry on the coordinate plane and an in-depth study of circles and the angles formed by their intersection with segments, rays and lines. This course culminates with a local final exam.

NCAA approved course.
