​​Apprenticeship & ​​Workplace Mathematics 10

This course i​s designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for en​try into the majority of trades and for direct entry into the work force. Topics include algebra, geometry, measurement, number, statis​tics and probability. Successful completion of Apprenticeship and Workplace Mathematics 10 will lead into Apprenticeship and Workplace Mathematics 11 and Apprenticeship and Workplace Mathematics 12 only.

Foundations of Mathematics and 

Pre-Calculus 10 Prep

This course is designed as a pre-requisite to Foundations of mathematics and Pre-Calculus 10.  The semester will focus on skill-building and making connections to better enable students to find success in a curriculum-heavy, fast-paced Math 10 classroom.Students enrolled in this course are required to follow up with Foundations of mathematics and Pre-Calculus 10 in their next semester. Topics include: study skills, formula manipulation, basic algebra and geometry .

Foundations of Mathematics and 

Pre-Calculus 10

Year-Long

This course is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for post-secondary studies. The grade 10 year will set a basis for deciding whether to pursue exclusively the theoretical Pre-Calculus stream or the more applied Foundations stream.  This is a "year-long" course that will encompass both the standard Math curriculum as well as some learning strategies and study habit techniques.  Students who require a bit of extra processing time, or those who struggle to "keep-up" with the academic course load should consider this Math 10 option. Students who are thinking of entering a mathematically dependent field (Mathematics, Computer Studies, Engineering, Sciences, etc.) may want to choose both streams in grade 11. Topics include: study skills, measurement, coordinate geometry, algebra and trigonometry.

​Apprenticeship & Workplace Mathematics 11

This course is strongly recommended for students who are planning on entering the workforce directly after high school, or who are planning on pursuing a career in the trades industries. Topics covered may include reasoning, rates of change, measurement, and statistics. Students who successfully master the learning outcomes of this course may continue on to Apprentice and Workplace Mathematics 12.

 


 

Foundations of Mathematics 11

This course is strongly recommended for students who are planning on pursuing post-secondary studies in the arts or the humanities. Topics studied may include logic and reasoning, functions, geometry, and statistics. Students who successfully master the learning outcomes of this course may continue on to Foundations of Mathematics 12. Students who are planning on pursuing post-secondary studies in math or sciences should take Pre-calculus 11.​

​Pre-Calculus 11 

This course is strongly recommended for students who are planning on pursuing post-secondary studies in math or sciences.Topics covered may include relations and functions, trigonometry, polynomial functions, and graphing. Students who successfully master the learning outcomes of this course may continue on to Pre-calculus 12. Students who are planning on pursuing post-secondary studies in the arts or the humanities should take Foundations of Mathematics 11. Students with less than 60% should consult with their teacher before choosing this course.​
 

 

​Foundations of Mathematics 12

This course involves the study of puzzles, compound interest and investment portfolios, set theory, probability, polynomial ​exponential logarithmic, sinusoidal functions, and current events in math. This is a course for students who do not need to study Calculus in a post-secondary institution. 
 

Pre-Calculus 12 

This course includes the following topics:
combinatorics, binomial expansion, composite functions, transformations of graphs, exponential and logarithmic functions, polynomial factoring, radical and rational functions, trigonometry, equations and identities. This is a course for students who will study Calculus in a post-secondary institution.

 

Calculus 12

Calculus 12 is an optional course offered to those students who are concurrently taking Mathematics 12. This is a course for students going on to university or college so that they will be able to “continue on” with the mathematics required in many programs rather than having to take a “catch up” course to begin their studies. 
Calculus studies the mathematics involving “rate of change” how one variable changes in relationship to another. The major topics covered are: limits, differentiation, functions and their graphs, extreme value functions, trigonometric functions, logarithmic and exponential functions, integration, and applications of differentiation.
