The main goals of mathematics education are to prepare you to:

 solve problems
 communicate and reason mathematically
 make connections between mathematics and its applications
 become mathematically literate
 appreciate and value mathematics
 make informed decisions as contributors to society

Credits: The following Math courses are 5 credits.

 50% minimum is required to progress to the next level in a sequence
 Learn more | see Appendix B for details about transfers between course sequences

Diploma Path | -1 and -2 Course Sequences

Math 10C
 involves topics such as measurement, powers, irrational numbers, functions and
relations, and trigonometry
 focuses on algebraic skills and reasoning
 provides several choices after you successfully complete it and move to 20-level

Math 20-1, 30-1
 investigate the relationships between relations and functions, and engage in
trigonometric topics
 develop abstract reasoning and visualization in a problem-solving environment
 prepare you for a entrance requirements for post-secondary institutions vary; be sure to
check their websites

Math 20-2, 30-2
 focus on investigation into logical reasoning, relations and functions, and trigonometry
 develop problem-solving, reasoning and communication in many ways, including a selfselected research project on a topic of interest
 prepare for a post-secondary program that does not require calculus (entrance
requirements for post-secondary institutions vary; be sure to check their websites)

Post-secondary Path | Requiring Calculus

Math 31
 prerequisite or co-requisite: Math 30-1
 introduces skills and topics in calculus
 investigates a variety of topics; focuses on the limit of a function and looks at the
relationship between differentiation and integration

Diploma Path | -3 at the 20-level or higher
Certificate of High School Achievement Path | -3 at the 10-level

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

Certificate of High School Achievement Path | -4 Course Sequence

Math 10-4, 20-4

 engage in measurement skills, number concepts and probability as they would be used
in the workplace
 develop problem-solving and reasoning skills in a team environment
 prepare you for the workplace or further training that may not involve post-secondary
Important | written consent and a learning plan are required to register in each -4
Knowledge and Employability (K&E) course
