Mathematics

Welcome to the Math Department!
Our Belief

We believe that the success of a student depends on three factors:

1. The amount of interest the child puts into his education.
2. The amount of interest the parent puts into the child's education.
3. The learning environment created by the school.

Philosophy

Our expectation is that every student at August Martin High School will
take four years of mathematics. All students are encouraged to take the most challenging mathematics courses at which they can function and succeed.

To meet the demands of the College Preparatory initiative and to help
students transition to college and technical careers, our goal is to help
students master the Sequential Mathematics curriculum. Those students
who require Bridge to Algebra before entering Mathematics A, will be
exposed to a variety of teaching strategies. All students will receive
supplementary supportive assistance when needed.

Bilingual courses will be offered in Bridge to Algebra and Mathematics A.

Mathematical Placement

1. Entering freshman who score below the 26th percentile on the Queens Math Test, DRP or the CAT, will be programmed for MG1.

2. Those scoring within the 25th and 50th percentile on the Queens Math Test, DRP or the CAT, will be programmed in M$A M$A is an extended period program running 7or 8 periods per week.

3. Entering freshman scoring above the 50th percentile on the Queens
Math Test, DRP or the CAT, will be programmed for M$1.

4. Students who pass Bridge to Algebra MG1 and MG2 will be
programmed for M$A.

Students are welcome to visit Math Assistant Principal regarding any
inquiry about mathematics class. Students should come only during their lunch period unless there is an emergency.
Students are discouraged from cutting their classes in order to see the
Math Assistant Principal. You must get a pass from your class teacher.

Math Sequence

Mathematics A (M#A, M#B, M#C, M#D) – Prentice Hall  A four term
sequence Math A Regents Course. Each course is a double period class.
M#A begins the sequence in the first term and so on. The Math A course includes logic,algebra, coordinate & analytical geometry, probability, systems of equation, trigonometry of right triangle, statistics, locus and construction.

Mathematics A (M&1, M&2, M&3 or M#1, M#2, M#3)    

A three term sequence Math A Regents Course. The sequence M&1,
M&2 and M&3 is an accelerated program where each course is a single
period class. The sequence M#1, M#2 and M#3 is an accelerated
program with extra support. Each course is a double period class.

Mathematics A (M$A, M$B, M$C & M$D)

A four term sequence Math A Regents Course. Each course is a single period class.M$A begins the sequence in the first term and so on. M$D is given in theLast term and culminates in the Regents Math A Examination. Each class is the prerequisite for the next class. The Math A course includes logic, algebra, coordinate & analytical geometry, probability, systems of equation, trigonometry of right triangle, statistics, locus & construction.

Mathematics B (*M$E, M$F, M$G & M$H- four terms) (**M$4, M$5, M$6- three terms)


 Prerequisite: Passed the Math A Regents Exam *A four term sequence Math B Regents Course. M$E is given in the first term and so on. M$H is given in the last term and culminates in the Regents

Math B Examination.


**A three term sequence Math B Regents Course.
M$4 is given in the first term and so on. M$6 is given in the last term and culminates in the Regents Math B Examination. Each class is the
prerequisite for the next class. The Math B course includes relations and functions, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, trigonometry, complex numbers, transformational geometry, probability, sequences, binomial theorem and statistics.

Intermediate Algebra (MG3 & MG4 or MGS)

An enriched course which contains algebra and geometry including
matrices, determinants, sequences, trigonometry and complex fractions.

Students must have attained a passing score in the Course 1 Regents
Exam or Math A Regents Exam along with the approval of the Assistant
Principal-Mathematics.

Pre-Calculus (MEP1 & MEP2)  

A course for those students planning to take Advanced Placement
Calculus. The courseincludes topics such as sequences, series,
methods of convergence for series, analytic geometry of parametric
equations, polar graphs, Theory of Equations, matrices & limits.
