Math

Grade 9

The aim of our Grade 9 math program is to prepare students to use math confidently to solve problems, communicate and reason mathematically, appreciate and value math, commit to lifelong learning and become mathematically literate adults, using their skills to contribute to society.

High School

Students entering senior high school choose programs based on how well they achieved in Grade 9 math, their interests, career aspirations and post-secondary choices. Students generally follow one stream taking the pre-requisite courses although certain transfers are permitted.

Math 10-C

The revised Grades 10-12 Mathematics Program includes a new option for students entering Grade 10. Mathematics 10C – the ‘C’ stands for ‘combined’ – is the starting point for both the Mathematics-1 and Mathematics-2 course sequences. Students who aren’t sure which course sequence they want to follow right out of junior high can take Mathematics 10C and then choose which path they want to take, either Mathematics 20-1 or Mathematics 20-2, in Grade 11. It allows students more time, and more resources, before they have to make a decision about which course sequence to pursue. And it is designed to provide the student opportunities to switch sequences based on changes in his or her education and career goals.

Math 20-1 (5 credits)

This course sequence is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical thinking skills identified for entry into postsecondary programs that require the study of calculus. Topics include algebra and number; measurement; relations and functions; trigonometry; and permutations, combinations and binomial theorem.

Math 20-2 (5 credits)

This course sequence is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and criticalthinking skills identified for post-secondary studies in programs that do not require the study of calculus. Topics include geometry, measurement, number and logic, logical reasoning, relations and functions, statistics, and probability.

Math 20-3 (5 credits)  

This course sequence is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and criticalthinking skills identified for entry into the majority of trades and for direct entry into the work force. Topics include algebra, geometry, measurement, number, statistics and probability.

Math 30-1 (5 credits)

This course sequence is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical thinking skills identified for entry into postsecondary programs that require the study of calculus. Topics include algebra and number; measurement; relations and functions; trigonometry; and permutations, combinations and binomial theorem.

Math 30-2 (5 credits)

This course sequence is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and criticalthinking skills identified for post-secondary studies in programs that do not require the study of calculus. Topics include geometry, measurement, number and logic, logical reasoning, relations and functions, statistics, and probability.

Math 30-3 (5 credits)

This course sequence is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and criticalthinking skills identified for entry into the majority of trades and for direct entry into the work force. Topics include algebra, geometry, measurement, number, statistics and probability.

Math 31 (5 credits)

This is a highly advanced course for students entering post-secondary programs that recommend or stipulate calculus as an entrance requirement. Students must take Math 30-1  before taking this course. The curriculum includes precalculus and limits, derivatives and derivative theorems, applications of derivatives and integrals, integral theorems and integral applications.
