Math

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


Courses in Mathematics are offered with instruction in English, French (F) and Spanish (S) where enrollment warrants. Note: Five credits at the 20 level are required to obtain an Alberta High School Diploma. Students may fulfill this requirement with 20-1, 20-2, or 20-3. Both Mathematics 30-1 and Mathematics 30-2 are diploma examination courses.

To register for Mathematics 10C, a student must have demonstrated Basic, Good or Excellent Achievement in Mathematics 9. For a student who did not meet grade 9 level expectations in Mathematics, the course options are Math 10-3 or Math 10-4. Mathematics 10C is the starting point for the –1 and –2 course sequences (see diagram above).

Pre-Calculus (-1 Course Sequence)

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 (for example: Engineering, Mathematics, Science and Business).

Fundamentals of Mathematics (-2 Course Sequence)

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 (for example: Arts program, Civil Engineering Technology and Medical Technologies). This sequence is designed to fulfill the needs of most students.

Workplace and Apprenticeship (-3 Course Sequence)

This course sequence is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for entry into the majority of trades or directly into the work force.

Knowledge and Employability (-4 Course Sequence)

This course sequence is designed to develop basic mathematical knowledge and skills necessary for everyday life and work situations.

Advanced Placement (AP) Mathematics

The Advanced Placement Program in Mathematics is designed for motivated students who wish to pursue mathematics at a level that will take them beyond high school. The regular Math 10C, 20-1, 30-1 and 31 topics are covered on an accelerated basis and then enriched to increase the students’ depth of understanding. See diagram above for typical and possible progressions in the event that the student’s post- secondary goals change.

+12,000 Indigenous peoples volunteered to fight shoulder to shoulder with Canadians. FNMI enlisted despite not being eligible for conscription because they were not recognized as Canadian citizens and did not have the right to vote until 1960. Today we remember. https://t.co/4SGXDymNX2
