Are you interested in making an interactive mathematical educational website that will help local and New York State (NYS) students have an equitable accessibility to practice for high stakes standardized exams? Consider this project for a chance to revolutionize NYS math exam preparation and shape a better future for equitable learning.
This project is aimed at making previous iterations of mathematics New York State Regents Examinations accessible through an interactive website. NYSRE are based on the Common Core Standards; each question to have existed in these exams is attached to a standard, month and year. Giving students the opportunity to sort by these criteria will allow students the opportunity to practice with proper repetition. To support English Language Learners, machine learning could be used to recreate English-language questions in lesser spoken languages that the NYSRE are not offered such as Swahili, Bengali etc.
Making exam practice more accessible allows students an opportunity to pass these exams on their first try, but also gain access to higher level math courses in high school.
This project will produce a functioning website that educators and students will utilize.
Future research with this website will show higher passing rates on the Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2 New York State Regents Examinations.

Once you begin the digital badge series, you will have access to all the necessary activities and instructions. Your mentor has indicated they would like you to also complete the specific preparation activities below. Please reference this when you get to Step 2 of the Preparation Phase.
Become familiar with www.jmap.org, IXL.com and DeltaMath.com.
JMAP is a database for every math exam question to ever exist in the Regents exam.
IXL and DeltaMath is what the project is aiming for, but only with what JMAP provides.
