For each week, you’ll find content to cover via the eMath online math book – this is one that math teachers in NYS recommend for Common Core Regents preparation, and it’s easy to follow along and do the practice problems as you go. You’ll probably want to print this out each week. Once you click on eMath, the first link on the list will give you the whole unit, but sometimes this doesn’t load, so if that happens, you can download/print the lessons individually.
You’ll also find a link to a list of related Khan Academy videos. Use these to reinforce what you learned via eMath, but do understand that Khan Academy material actually gets into Algebra 2, so there will be topics there that don’t relate to what you’re doing. I’d recommend looking for the topics you learned about in eMath and watching those videos to reinforce.
And then there are links to NROS units – this is an online course, and the videos are really, really good. They’re well produced & clear. This whole thing might make a great review if you don’t end up using it all during the weekly lessons. Or you might substitute this for the Khan Academy videos- it’s not quite as dry – but you can decide that later on.

Getting Ready for the Regents: Take a look at this – it’s the guide from NYS to help algebra teachers know what kinds of things will be on the exam. Look at the charts, and if you see something that makes you nervous, search for that topic at Khan Academy.
August 9-12 – Review
I will add practice test links here when we get closer – but all of the videos above – especially any that you skipped over during the units – will be great review material, too.
