Mathematics

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The mathematics program is designed to provide pre-requisite knowledge, skills, and critical-thinking skills for specific post-secondary programs or direct entry into the workforce. Students should choose courses required for admission to their desired post-secondary program and also be aware of the grade entrance requirements for that program.
The Grade 9 Mathematics course is a required course for all Grade 9 students. Students that are struggling in Mathematics may be eligible for alternative programming and should contact a guidance counselor. A scientific calculator is required for this course.
Essential Mathematics: This program is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills for entry into the majority of trades, and for direct entry into the workforce.
Applied Mathematics: This program is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for post-secondary studies in programs that do not require the study of theoretical calculus.
Pre-Calculus Mathematics: This program is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for entry into post-secondary programs that require the study of theoretical calculus.

COURSES

MATHEMATICS 10F | MATR1F – 1 CREDIT

Math 10F is a compulsory course for all Grade 9 students. A main goal of the course is to enable students to reason and communicate mathematically with confidence. It includes such topics as Mathematical Reasoning, Statistics, Polynomials, Spatial Geometry/Transformations, Linear Relations, Powers and Exponents, and Trigonometry. (A scientific calculator is required.)

ESSENTIAL MATHEMATICS 20S | ESMR2S – 1 CREDIT

Essential Mathematics 20S involves applications to practical problems from business and consumer mathematics. This course is intended for students whose post-secondary studies do not require math as a pre-requisite. The topics include: Analysis of Games and Numbers, Personal Finance, Measurement, 2-D Geometry, Trigonometry, Consumer Decisions, Transformations and Angle Construction. (A scientific calculator is required.)

INTRODUCTION TO APPLIED AND PRE-CALCULUS MATHEMATICS 20S | IAPR2S – 1 CREDIT

Introduction to Applied and Pre-Calculus Mathematics is the prerequisite for Applied 30S and Pre-Calculus 30S. This course is intended for students who are considering post-secondary studies that require math as a pre-requisite. It emphasizes independent thinking and the development of strong problem solving and analysis skills. Topics include rational and irrational numbers, powers of integers, linear measurements, proportional reasoning, linear relations and functional notation. (A scientific calculator is required.)

APPLIED MATHEMATICS 30S | APMR3S – 1 CREDIT

Applied Math 30S places emphasis on critical thinking and analysis of data using technology. The topics include: Measurement, Geometry/Trigonometry, Logical Reasoning, Statistics, Relations and Functions, Mathematics Research Project. Successful completion of Grade 10 Introduction to Applied and Pre-Calculus is strongly recommended as a prerequisite.  (A TI-83/84 graphing calculator is required.)

ESSENTIAL MATHEMATICS 30S | ESMR3S – 1 CREDIT

Essential Math 30S involves applications to practical problems from business and consumer mathematics. The topics include: Analysis of Games and Numbers, Interest and Credit, 3-D Geometry, Statistics, Managing Money, Relations and Patterns, Trigonometry, and Design Modeling. Successful completion of a Grade 10 Mathematics course is a pre-requisite for the Grade 11 Essentials mathematics course. (A scientific calculator is required.)

PRE-CALCULUS MATHEMATICS 30S | PCMR3S – 1 CREDIT

Pre-Calculus Math 30S places emphasis on theoretical problem solving and independent thinking. The topics include: Algebra and Number Sense, Trigonometry, Relations and Functions.  It is highly recommended that students have achieved a minimum or 70% in IAPR2S. (A scientific calculator is required.)

ENRICHED PRE-CALCULUS MATHEMATICS 30S | PCME3S - 1 CREDIT

Students will be challenged and accelerated in the Grade 11 Pre-Calculus program as they prepare to enter into the Advanced Placement Calculus course in their grade 12 year. It is highly recommended students have achieved a minimum of 80% in their IAPR2S course. Students should register for the Gr. 11 Enriched class semester 1, and the Gr. 12 Enriched class semester 2, so they will be finished by their gr. 12 year when they will take the Advanced Placement Calculus course. (A scientific calculator is required.)

APPLIED MATHEMATICS 40S | APMR4S - 1 CREDIT

Applied Math 40S places emphasis on critical thinking and analysis of data using technology. The topics include: Financial Mathematics (Investing, Borrowing), Logical Reasoning, Probability, Relations and Functions, Design and Measurement, Mathematics Research Project. Successful completion of Grade 11 Applied or Grade 11 Pre-Calculus Mathematics is strongly recommended as a pre-requisite.  (A TI-83/84 graphing calculator is required.)

ESSENTIAL MATHEMATICS 40S | ESMR4S – 1 CREDIT

Essential Math 40S involves applications to practical problems from business and consumer mathematics. The topics include: Analysis of Games and Numbers, Vehicle Finance, Statistics, Precision Measurement, Career Life, Home Finance, Geometry and Trigonometry, Business Finance, Probability. Successful completion of a Grade 11 Mathematics course is a pre-requisite for the Essential Mathematics course.  (A scientific calculator is required.)

PRE-CALCULUS MATHEMATICS 40S | PCMR4S – 1 CREDIT

Pre-Calculus Math 40S places emphasis on theoretical problem solving and independent thinking. The topics include: Trigonometry, Permutations, Combinations and Binomial Theorem, Relations and Functions. It is highly recommended that students have achieved a minimum of 70% in Grade 11 Pre-calculus.  (A scientific calculator is required.)

ENRICHED PRE-CALCULUS MATHEMATICS 40S | PCME4S - 1 CREDIT

Students will be in their grade 11 year and will be challenged and accelerated in the Grade 12 Pre-Calculus program as they prepare to enter into the Advanced Placement Calculus course in their grade 12 year. It is highly recommended that students achieve a minimum of 80% in the previous enriched course to continue in the enriched program.  (A scientific calculator is required.)

ADVANCED MATHETICS – ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) CALCULUS | CALR4S – 1 CREDIT

AP Calculus provides an opportunity to pursue college-level studies in high school and a first year university credit (based on receiving 4 out of 5 on the AP Exam). The course covers differential and integral calculus topics. It is highly recommended that students will have completed the Enriched Pre-Calculus courses in their grade 11 year. The course runs for one and one-half semesters (September to mid-May).. (A TI-83 graphing calculator is required for this course.
