Mathematics

All high school mathematics courses have a focus on problem solving and spend more time on answering the “why” along with the “how” of mathematical concepts. 
 

Grade 10

Introduction to Applied and Pre-Calculus Mathematics 20S (IAPR2S): This course is intended for students considering post-secondary studies that require math as a pre-requisite. This course blends contextual and algebraic mathematics by engaging students in experiments and activities that include the use of technology, problem solving, mental mathematics, and theoretical mathematics. Topics include Linear Modeling, Number Sense, Measurement, Linear Functions, Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Trigonometry, and applications of Linear Functions. 1 Credit
Essential Mathematics 20S (ESMR2S): This course is intended for students whose post-secondary planning does not include a focus on mathematics and science related fields. This course emphasizes consumer applications, problem solving, decision making and spatial sense. Students are expected to work both individually and in small groups on mathematical concepts and skills encountered in everyday life in a technological society. Unit topics include analysis of games and numbers, personal finance, measurement, 2-D geometry, trigonometry, consumer decisions, transformations and angle construction. This course is intended for students whose post-secondary planning does not include a focus on mathematics and science related fields. 1 Credit
 
Math Skills Course (TAHR1F): This course is designed for students that have gaps in their mathematical understandings as they transition from junior high to high school mathematics. Topics include learning to learn, estimation and mental math, problem solving, fractions and decimals, calculating and estimating with percent with geometry, consumer decisions, etc.. 1/2 Credit
 

Grade 11

Applied Mathematics 30S (APMR2S): This course is intended for students considering post-secondary studies that do not require a study of theoretical calculus. The course promotes the learning of numerical and geometrical problem-solving techniques as they relate to the world around us. Technology like graphing calculators, spreadsheets, or other computer software will be used by students as an integral part of both learning and assessment in this course. Successful completion of Grade 10 Introduction to Applied and Pre-calculus Mathematics is strongly recommended as a prerequisite. 1 Credit
 
Essential Mathematics 30S (ESMR3S): This course is intended for students whose post-secondary planning does not include a focus on mathematics and science-related fields. (This course builds on the concepts taught in Essential Math 20S.) Unit topics include analysis of games and numbers, interest and credit, 3-D geometry, statistics, managing money, relations and patterns,
trigonometry, and design modelling. 1 Credit
 
Pre-calculus Mathematics 30S (PCMR3S): This course is designed for students who intend to study calculus and related mathematics as part of their post-secondary education. The course builds on the topics studied in Grade 10 Introduction to Applied and Pre-calculus Mathematics and provides background
knowledge and skills for Grade 12 Pre-calculus Mathematics. The topics include study of quadratic functions and equations, rational functions, trigonometry, radicals, inequalities, sequences, and systems of equations. It is highly recommended that students have achieved a minimum of 65% in IAPR2S. 1 Credit
 
Enriched Pre-Calculus Mathematics 20S, 30S, and 40S (PCME2S, PCME3S, & PCME4S): Students will be challenged and accelerated in their mathematics programs as they plan to enter into Advanced Placement Calculus in their grade 12 year. Students must have completed the previous grade level work
with a minimum of 70% to proceed in the program. 1 Credit
 

Grade 12

Grade 12 Pre-calculus Mathematics 40S: (PCMR4S): This course is designed for students who intend to study calculus and related mathematics as part of their postsecondary education. The course builds on the topics studied in Grade 11 Pre-calculus Mathematics. The topics include the study of transformations of functions, trigonometric functions, permutations and combinations, binomial theorem, polynomial functions, exponents and logarithms, and radical and rationals. It is highly recommended that students have achieved a minimum
of 65% in Grade 11 Pre-calculus Mathematics. 1 Credit
 
Grade 12 Applied Mathematics 40S (APMR4S): This course is intended for students considering post-secondary studies that do not require a study of theoretical calculus. The course promotes the learning of numerical and geometrical problem-solving techniques as they relate to the world around us.
This course includes the topics: Financial Mathematics, Logical Reasoning, Probability, Relations and Functions, and Design and Measurement. Additionally, students will complete a Mathematics Research Project. Successful completion of Grade 11 Applied or Grade 11 Pre-calculus Mathematics is strongly recommended as a prerequisite. 1 Credit
 
Grade 12 Essential Mathematics 40S (ESMR4S): This course is intended for students whose post-secondary planning does not include a focus on mathematics and science-related fields. Unit topics include analysis of games and numbers, vehicle finance, home finance, statistics, geometry and trigonometry, precision measurement, business finance, career life project, and probability. 1 Credit
 
Calculus 45S (CALR4S):  The prime objective of this half credit course is to introduce students to areas of mathematics which will be studied in depth in post-secondary programs. The course focuses on the concept of limits, derivative of a function, applications of derivatives, and integration. 1/2 Credit
