Living Evironment

The Living Environment Syllabus has a focus on the life sciences.  The course is typically the high school freshman or sophomore course.  In order to sit for the regents exam the student must complete a series of NY State required labs.

Earth Science

With a focus on geology, meteorology, and other aspects of the physical setting, the Earth Science course is often offered as an 8th or 9th grade class or as an elective alternative to Chemistry or Physics.  As part of the regents exam, students will be required to take a Laboratory Practical where they are required to complete several tasks.

Chemistry

The NYS Chemistry Syllabus also has a focus on the physical setting.  Over the school year students are required to complete 1200 minutes of hands-on lab activities.  The general topics for the class revolve around the interactions between matter and energy and the chemical and physical changes that can be observed.

Physics

The Physics Syllabus is based in non-calculus based physics.  A large part of the curriculum is centered around Newtonian mechanics, with the remainder of the coursework in work, power and energy, waves, electricity, magnetism, modern and nuclear physics.  A 1200 minute hands-on lab requirement also applies to this course.

NYC 6-12 Science Scope and Sequence

The Enhanced NYC Science Scope & Sequence is a revision of an earlier Scope & Sequence published in 2008. The Enhanced NYC Science Scope & Sequence includes the current NYS MST standards that all schools should continue to follow as well as new resources
