# Liberty Partnership Program

New York State’s Liberty Partnerships Programs (LPP) offers comprehensive pre-collegiate/dropout prevention programs and services to youth in urban, rural and suburban communities. Learn America has partnered with LPP Project Lead institutions to provide our STEM resources to the at-risk student population and to work with the local school representatives to provide necessary intervention and assistance towards the success of the student.

Our expert instructional leaders create the right environment for learners as a supplement to traditional classroom instructions. LPP local representatives utilize our pre-populated content to assist and accommodate the varying needs of their students and utilize the assessment engine and other reports to track course progress and provide individualized study paths through a structured online learning environment.

Our Math and Science courses are built to New York State Regents curriculum specifications. AP level courses are constructed in line with the College Board course curriculum.

## High School Courses

This is the second Regents course in the mathematics series for high school students. The course will cover the content and the process strands of the New York State Mathematics Standards. The exam will address the students’ conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and problem solving skills. Graphing Calculators will be required for use by the student. Topics include congruence and similarity of triangles, transformations, properties of triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, regular pyramids, cylinders, cones, spheres, constructions, locus, reasoning and proofs. The course will conclude with the Geometry Regents exam.

This course will cover the material necessary for students to take the Integrated Algebra Regents exam. The Regents exam will address both the content and the process strands of the New York State Mathematics Standards. The exam will address the students’ conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and problem solving skills. Graphing Calculators will be required for use by the student. Topics include linear and quadratic functions, solving equations and inequalities, properties of exponents, radical expressions, polynomials, rational expressions, counting outcomes, and permutations. The course will conclude with the Integrated Algebra Regents exam.

The course emphasizes understanding of broad concepts rather than memorization of science facts. Key Ideas covered include: Mechanics, Energy, Electricity and Magnetism, Waves, and Modern Physics. Historical content, uncertainty in measurement, significant figures and SI units are included in the introduction of the core. In addition the material on the Physics Reference Tables is considered part of the core curriculum and is testable. The course culminates with a Regents exam. Students must successfully complete 1,200 minutes of NY State mandated hands-on laboratory exercises in order to be eligible to sit for the exam. A satisfactory laboratory write-up is the criteria for successful completion of the lab exercise. (LAB REQUIRED)

This course is the capstone course of the three units of credit required for a Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation. This course is a continuation and extension of the Integrated Algebra R and Geometry R courses that preceded it. This series prepares the students for success in Pre-Calculus and AP Statistics and/or AP Calculus. Students will represent and analyze algebraically a variety of problems. Within this course, the number system will be extended to include imaginary and complex numbers. The families of functions to be studied will include polynomial, absolute value, radical, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Problem situations involving direct and indirect variation will be solved. Problems resulting in systems of equations will be solved graphically and algebraically. Data analysis will be extended to include measures of dispersion and the analysis of regression that model functions studied throughout this course. Right triangle trigonometry will be expanded to include the investigation of circular functions. Problem situations requiring the use of trigonometric equations and identities will also be investigated. Graphing Calculators will be required for use by the student. The course will conclude with the Algebra 2 & Trigonometry Regents exam

The AP Statistics course is equivalent to a one-semester, introductory, non-calculus-based college course in statistics. The course introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. There are four themes in the AP Statistics course: exploring data, sampling, and experimentation, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. Students use technology, investigations, problem solving, and writing as they build conceptual understanding.

AP Calculus AB course is devoted to topics in differential and integral calculus. The AP course covers topics in these areas, including concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. This course teaches students concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically and verbally, and to make connections amongst these representations.
