Long Beach High School Extra Help Schedule
The 21st century takes us into a new era in mathematics education.
Changes in technology have made mathematics an alive and dynamic science
in itself, as well as an integral part of our daily lives. Now, more
than ever before, educating students for life requires that we provide
all students with a strong mathematical background.
All students are offered the Regents sequence of courses, which follow the Common Core Learning Standards.

In September 2017, the New York State Board of Regents adopted the newly
revised English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Standards
implementation of the Next Generation Learning Standards is expected in
September 2020, with new grade 3-8 tests measuring Next Generation
Learning Standards in Spring 2021.
Students are offered elective courses in mathematics as well. Within
the department, more than 300 students are enrolled in Advanced
Placement courses and/or IB courses. Those who do not wish to take
Advanced Placement or IB math courses may choose from Principles of
Geometry, Intermediate Algebra, Advanced Algebra & Statistics, or
Financial Algebra. The high percentage of students taking four or more
years of mathematics is a measure of the success of our program.
