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

Congratulations to the Lord Beaverbrook High School Jazz Band and Dr. E.W. Coffin School Grade 4, Room 5. They are finalists in the CBC Canadian Music Class Challenge. Check out their submissions! #WeAreCBE

RT @ZooSchoolyyc: How do we teach the value and importance of our connection to all living things? Maybe by getting to know our local neighbours? This is a concept our Chris Akkermann students are just beginning to understand. Have you spotted this local winter bird?

RT @kinggeorgecbe: Le défi du flocon de neige a commencé! Comment est-ce que tous les élèves dans chaque classe vont créer un flocon de neige qui est aussi grand que Mme Shafina ou Mme Renée, en utilisant seulement le papier, les ciseaux et la laine? @CBELanguages #WeAreCBE

RT @KeelerSchool: Grade 6 students created pictograph rocks using symbols and colours to communicate their connections to the land. #WeAreCBE #Keeler

Check out this story about the @twowheelview 10-week Earn-A-Bike program at Crescent Heights High School. Students receive a refurbished bicycle, helmet and basic tools to maintain their new ride. #WeAreCBE
