Math is more than memorizing formulas and doing calculations. Math involves:

  • Highly practical and hands-on problems and skills
  • Rich problem-solving activities in collaboration with your peers
  • Some problems that will stretch your understanding to the abstract and theoretical
  • Using technology to develop, demonstrate and communicate your mathematical understandings

Mathematics 9

This course covers the major strands of math from the Alberta curriculum. Students are introduced to the mathematics topics of numbers, algebra, trigonometry, geometry, transformations and probability. There is a Provincial Achievement Test for all students at the end of June of their grade nine year.

Math 10C (5 credits)

This course has been designed to facilitate a smoother transition between Grade 9 and 10 Mathematics. Students will have one course of high school math before deciding whether to register in Math 20-1 or Math 20-2. Guidance will be provided to students about which sequence to select depending on their grades and their post-secondary plans. Topics covered in this course are number and powers, algebra and polynomials, measurement and trigonometry.

Math 20-1 “Precalculus” (5 credits)

Prerequisite: Math 10C with a recommended mark of 70%. This course sequence 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 calculus. Topics include algebra and number; measurement; relations and functions, and trigonometry.

Math 20-2 “Foundations of Mathematics” (5 credits)

Prerequisite: Math 10C. This course sequence 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 calculus. Topics include geometry, measurement, number and logic, logical reasoning, relations and functions, statistics, and probability.

Math 30-1 “Pre-Calculus” (5 credits)

Prerequisite: MATH 20-1 with a recommended mark above 70%. 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 relations and functions, permutations and combinations, binomial theorem and trigonometry.

Math 30-2 “Foundations of Mathematics” (5 Credits)

Prerequisite: Math 20-1 or Math 20-2. This course sequence 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 calculus. Topics include Logical Reasoning, Relations and Functions and Probability.

Mathematics 31 – (5 credits)

Pre-requisite: MATH 30-1 with a recommended mark above 80%. This is a first course in Calculus. It is designed for highly motivated students who have a strong interest in mathematics or want to explore courses requiring calculus at university, technical institute or at the college level. Students interested in engineering, physical sciences, or medical sciences should consider taking Math 31.
