What is the Math A Regents? The
New York State Mathematics A Regents Examination is the Math standardized
assessment that all students in New York State must pass in order to graduate
from high school. The test requires students to demonstrate their ability to
apply facts and definitions, solve problems, and show their understanding of
mathematical procedures and problemsolving strategies. The New Regents have
increased emphasis on use of the graphing
calculator. The material
tested falls into seven key categories developed in the NYS Standards for
Education: mathematical reasoning, number and numeration, operations,
modeling/multiple representation, measurement, probability, and
patterns/functions.
When is the Math A Regents offered? The Math A Regents is offered in January, June and August of each year. The next Regents week will be Jan 27  30, 2003.
How is the Math A Regents Test structured?
The New Math A Regents consists of four parts that have to be completed in three hours.
Students are to answer ALL questions, and show ALL work. Part I is the
multiple choice response section, whereas, Parts II, III, and IV are openended response sections where
students must clearly indicate the necessary steps used in arriving at a
conclusion.
 Part I 
(40 points)  20 multiple
choice questions worth 2 pts each
 Part II  (10 points)  5 Open ended question worth 2 pts
each.
 Part III  (15 points)  5 Open ended question worth 3
pts each.
 Part IV  (20 points)  5 Open ended question worth 4 pts
each.
