Classes and Workshops


Conquer the Core is an academic program designed to prepare middle and high school students for the New York State Regents Examination.

The spring 2016 workshop dates will be June 4, 5, 11, 12, with two 4-hour sessions offered on each day. Students have the option of dividing their course time into two sessions on separate days or completing both sessions in one day. (Morning sessions will cover Part I of each course; afternoon sessions will cover Part II.) Families interested in registering for more than one course can determine how to divide their time among the eight sessions offered over four dates.
Conquer the Core instructors have extensive experience with Common Core private tutoring, and their instructional approach for these courses will emphasize small-group work and one-on-one feedback.  With two teachers and no more than 10 students per session, students can expect a 5:1 student-teacher ratio.

Available workshops include:

Algebra I (Common Core) Geometry (Common Core)
Living Environment Earth Science

Introduction to Trigonometry is a course taught in conjunction with Precalculus. The course uses Chapters 5-7 of Precalculus: A Graphing Approach by Larson, Hostetler, Edwards as a study guide. While the focus is on the fundamental concepts of trigonometry, it is meant to prepare students for honors precalculus. Topics covered include Angles and Their Measures, Right Angle Trigonometry, Trigonometric Functions of Any Angle, Graphs of Trigonometric Functions, Inverse Trig Functions and Trig Identities and Equations.

This course will be offered in Spring and Summer of 2016


After3: Advanced Pre-Algebra is an advanced pre-algebra course designed to prepare students for the study of algebra. The learning objectives are based on a combination of the seventh grade core math standards as published by the Common Core State Standards Initiative and a pre-algebra course prior to implementation of common core. (Fall 2014 and Spring 2015)

Algebra II covers all fundamental concepts in the second year of algebra, excluding trigonometry.  Topics include Linear Systems and Models, Functions, Relations and Transformations, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions and Quadratic and Polynomial Functions. (Summer 2014 and 2015)

Introduction to Prealgeba is a course meant to introduce students to variables, expressions and solving equations. As a supplement, some exercises have been added for functions and relations.
