Senior high 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

Senior High Math: Course Sequences

: 5 credits per course

Prerequisites: 50% minimum is required to progress to the next level in a sequence 

Course Outlines: Course outlines are located within the Introductory Module of each D2L course and contain specific information related to learner outcomes, assessment and weightings.  

Course Sequence Considerations

  • Minimum math requirement for a High School Diploma is the successful completion of either Math 20-1, 20-2, or 20-3.
  • Minimum math requirement for a Certificate of High School Achievement is the successful completion of Math 10-3 (or K&E Math 20-4, which is not offered at CBe-learn)
  • Students who have not taken a math course for more than four years should repeat the course that is most equivalent to their last math course

"-1" Math Course Sequence (plus Math 31)

Math 10C

  • Prerequisite: pass Grade 9 Math 
  • involves topics such as measurement, powers, irrational numbers, functions and relations, and trigonometry
  • focuses on algebraic skills and reasoning
  • provides several choices afterwards for 20-level courses

Math 20-1 and 30-1

  • investigate the relationships between relations and functions, and engage in trigonometric topics
  • develop abstract reasoning and visualization in a problem-solving environment
  • prepares you for post-secondary (institutions vary, be sure to check their websites)
  • in Math 30-1, you write a provincial Diploma Exam worth 30% of your final grade

Math 31

  • Prerequisite: Math 30-1 is a prerequisite or corequiste to Math 31. Generally, students take Math 30-1 first, followed by Math 31, but the two courses can be taken concurrently.
  • introduces skills and topics in calculus
  • focuses on the limit of a function and looks at the relationship between differentiation and integration

"-2" Math Course Sequence  

Math 10C (same as above)

Math 20-2 and 30-2

  • focus on investigation into logical reasoning, relations and functions, and trigonometry
  • develop problem-solving, reasoning and communication in many ways, including a self-selected research project on a topic of interest
  • prepares you for a post-secondary program that does not require calculus (entrance requirements for post-secondary institutions vary; be sure to check their websites)
  • in Math 30-2, you write a provincial Diploma Exam worth 30% of your final grade

"-3" Math Course Sequence  

Math 10-3, 20-3, 30-3

  • engage in measurement skills, geometry, personal and business finances, and statistics and probability
  • emphasize practical math found in day-to-day activities
  • prepare you for entry into some apprenticeship programs, trades or the workforce after high school completion
  • New (Fall 2021): We are now offering Math 30-3
