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 ( Full 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.
