This publication incorporates the topics and concepts of the New York State Education syllabi for mathematics from Pre-K through 12. The first section, "K-8 Mathematics Scope and Sequence," lists the New York City (NYC) mathematics performance objectives for grade levels K-8 sequentially by mathematical topic. The objectives for each module are coded using the NYC coding system. The second section, "Fundamentals of Mathematics," is designed to provide appropriate mathematics experiences for pre-algebra students. These experiences emphasize the development of computational skills, mathematical concepts, and problem-solving techniques. It may be used as the basis for a 1-year course. The complete course is divided into 12 basic units. The last two sections, "Consumer Mathematics (Part 1 and Part 2)" are designed to improve mathematical proficiency and understanding as the student is given practice in relevant problem-solving situations. The purpose of this course is to review, reinforce, and extend concepts learned in the second section. Part 2 contains computer applications for many of the topics contained in Part 1. The lessons involve using electronic spreadsheets and applying them to real-life situations. (YP)
