This major revision prepares students to succeed on the New York State Math A Regents Exam as it is now given. The book places increased emphasis on mathematical modeling and the use of the graphing calculator. In line with New York State Regents core curriculum, it shows how given problems can be solved in several different ways. The author also includes new Regents question types dealing, for instance, with motion problems and mathematical systems defined by tables. New contextualized word problems further enhance the presentation. The totally rewritten chapter on problem-solving offers students a core set of strategies that apply to a variety of curriculum-related exercises. In addition to subject review, demonstraton examples, and practice exercises with answers, the book includes several complete recent Math A Regents exams with answers.
Unit One: Mathematical Reasoning
Working with Numbers and Variables
Linear Equations and Inequalities
Problem Solving and Logical Reasoning
Unit Two: Geometry
Angles, Lines, and Polygons
Congruent Triangles and Special Quadrilaterals
Unit Three: Algebraic Methods
