Some NYS School Math Fast Facts Some NYS School Math Fast Facts NYS is home to some the largest school districts (New York City School  District), smallest school districts (Clymer Central School District), and the  richest (the Hamptons). It’s called the Empire state for a reason.  Driving time from Clymer to the  Hamptons is approximately the same as it is from Clymer to Columbia, SC  or from Clymer to Knoxville, TN. Since the 1950s, all school districts in NYS have been united by a common  high school mathematics curriculum.   Since the 1920s, common assessments (Regents Exams) have been a  staple of the secondary school exam. An Integrated Mathematics Curriculum at the high school level was first  piloted 30 years ago.  Although significant revisions have been made to the  curriculum on at least two occasions, Integrated Mathematics remains firmly  in place in NYS.
