**Content Structure**

Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring gives a topic by topic review of the Algebra II Regents Exam. We review major topics like: *Algebra, Functions, Number and Quantity, and Statistics & Probability.*

After each section teachers will hand out practice questions, review answers, answer any questions and continue to the next topic.

**Course Structure**

Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring’s Algebra II Regents Prep Course runs from 9am-4pm, with a few 5-10 minute breaks, and a 45-minute lunch break. Classes are small and capped at a max of 18 students.

Our classes are taught close to exam dates so that students will retain more information and are designed for review of previously learned concepts with a focus on test-taking strategies and practice problems – we call these “mini-lessons”.

These mini-lessons are followed by questions and further review. Teachers walk around while students are working on the practice problems of each individual concept – which is another opportune time for students to ask individual questions about questions they are working on. We also welcome additional questions during breaks.

Our teachers are there to help you get answers and understand the material, not to “get through” the course.

## What our parents and Children say about us

**Get To Know The ****Algebra II Regents Exam**

- The Algebra II Regents exam is a 3-hour long exam that consists of four parts with a total of 37 questions that all must be answered.
**Part I**consists of 24 multiple-choice questions worth 2 points each (48 total points). They are questions that have four possible answers and some multiple-choice questions require students to complete multiple steps.**Part II**consists of 8 open-ended questions worth 2 points each, questions may involve multiple steps, the application of multiple mathematics skills, and real-world applications. These questions may ask students to explain or justify their solutions and/or show their process of problem solving (16 points).**Part III**consists of 4 constructed-response questions worth 4 points each, questions require students to show their work in completing more extensive problems that may involve multiple tasks and concepts. Students will be asked to make sense of mathematical and real-world problems in order to demonstrate procedural and conceptual understanding (16 points).**Part IV**consists of 1 constructed-response questions worth 6 points. In these questions students will analyze, interpret, and/or create mathematical models of real-world situations to solve multi-step problems that connect multiple major clusters or a major cluster to supporting or additional content (6 points).

- Since scrap paper is not provided or permitted for any part of the exam, you must use the blank spaces in the question booklet as scrap paper. After you figure out the answer to each multiple-choice question in Part I, you must write the numeral that precedes the correct choice in the space provided on the separate tear-off answer sheet for Part I found at the back of the question booklet.
- The answers and the work for the questions in Parts II, III and IV must be written directly in the question booklet in the space provided underneath the questions. All work should be written in pen except the graphs which should be drawn in pencil.
- If you need graph paper, it will be provided in the question booklet.
- Each student must have the exclusive use of a Graphing Calculator for the full duration of the Regents Examination in Algebra II (Common Core). Schools are required to make a graphing calculator (and ruler) available for the exclusive use of each student. No student may use a calculator that is capable of symbol manipulation or that can communicate with other calculators through infrared sensors, nor may a student use operating manuals, instruction or formula cards, or other information concerning the operation of calculators during the test.
- The Algebra II Regents Examination test booklet will include a reference sheet containing the formulas. This formula sheet, however, does not necessarily include all of the formulas that you are expected to know.

### Tips on How “Survive”

### The Algebra II Exam

**Review Previous Tests**- By examining the kind of questions asked on older tests, you'll learn some important information that includes the targeted subject matter as well as level of item difficulty. You can find a number of old Regents Exams along with their answer keys by visiting the official Regents website (http://www.nysedregents.org/).

**Answer A LOT of Practice Questions**- After looking over questions that were written for past Regents Exams, see how well you do on similar items by answering some chemistry practice questions. Your performance on these questions will indicate which topics you need to focus on the most during your prep.

**Use The Calculator**- Learn how to use the calculator and when not to use the calculator. There’s only so much it can do for you – and you must be ready for all concepts that require this useful tool.

**Study, Study, Study!**- Do not overwhelm yourself with trying to learn or go over everything all at once. Take it slow and study a little bit at a time. Always work from the beginning, for example, go over the things that you learned at the beginning of the course or year because those are the things that are not as fresh in your memory.

**Equations – REMEMBER ALL OF THEM!**- The test will have a table of useful equations to help you, but not all are present. Don’t bet on any of them being there, just remember them all.

**Ask for help!**- If there are concepts you do not understand, do not hesitate to ask for help. Consult your teacher during the course, write us an e-mail afterwards, give us a call – we are YOUR resource for further help
