What is the Math B Regents?
The New York State Mathematics B 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 problem-solving 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 B Regents offered?
The Math B 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 B Regents Test structured?
The New Math B 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 open-ended 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.
