## Reflection: Standardized Tests (PARCC/Smarter Balanced) Intro to Trigonometry / What is Similarity? - Section 2: What is Trigonometry? / About this Class

Finally, the bottom corner of the Course Syllabus says "+, a note on Regents Prep...". I am writing from New York, where the annual state high school exams are called the Regents.  Students must pass the Integrated Algebra exam to graduate from high school.  After that, the Geometry and Algebra 2 & Trigonometry exams are optional but required for an "advanced Regents" diploma.  This course is for a mixed-ability group of students who are at different stages in their math Regents passage.  It is designed to help older students who have struggled with the Integrated Algebra exam to get the pieces they need to pass it; this course is also the second semester of a three-semester sequence that will prepare students for the Algebra 2 & Trig exam.  I explain all of this to students to help them get situated.
