Taking Math This Year? Students require a T1-83 Plus calculator for all Math Pure and Math Applied courses. Because of the amount of graphing and formula information that is downloaded into the student calculator and because of the instruction required to use a graphing calculator correctly it is an absolute necessity that your student has the correct calculator. These calculators usually go on sale toward the end of August at stores like London Drugs or Staples for around $125.00 – please watch the flyers. If that price is too steep we do have calculators your student can rent from us. The rent is $50.00 per calculator per Quarter. When the calculator is returned in good condition at the end of the Quarter, $25.00 will be refunded. Calculators can only be rented for Math classes.

Course Sequences

“1” Course Sequence is for students who plan to enter post-secondary programs such as engineering, mathematics, sciences, some business studies, or other programs that require advanced math skills. The sequence is a co-requisite for Mathematics 31 and may be required for post-secondary calculus courses.

This course 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 algebra and number sense; measurement; relations and functions; trigonometry; and permutations, combinations, and the binomial theorem.

“2” Course Sequence is for students wishing to study at the post-secondary level in diverse fields, including arts programs, civil engineering technology, medical technologies, and some apprenticeship programs. This path will fulfill most students' needs. Mathematics-2 is designed with a great deal of flexibility, so that the student can switch sequences in Grade 11 or Grade 12 if his or her interests change.

This course sequence is designed to provide students with 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 sense and logic; logical reasoning; relations and functions; statistics and probability.

“3” Course Sequence is for students who want to apprentice to a trade or enter the workforce directly after high school.

This course sequence is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical thinking skills identified for entry into the majority of trades and for direct entry into the work force. Topics include algebra; geometry; measurement; number sense; statistics and probability.

The content covered for this course is: absolute value, radical, quadratic, and rational functions and equations, trigonometry of angles in standard position, sine law, cosine law, polynomial factoring, systems of equations, quadratic inequalities, reciprocal functions, and arithmetic and geometric sequences and series.

Recommended prerequisite: 65% or higher in Math 10C
Students that score 65% or higher in Math 20-1 may continue in the "-1" stream,
students with a mark between 50 and 65% will be recommended to the "-2 stream",
and students that get a mark less than 50% will move to  the "-3" stream.

Math 20-2 (5 Credits)
The content covered in this course is: properties of angles in triangles, cosine law, sine law, inductive and deductive reasoning, radical expressions and equations, normal distribution, confidence intervals, quadratic functions, and a mathematics research project.

Prerequisite: At least 50% in Math 10C.Students that get a mark over 50% may continue on in the "-2" stream, and students that get a mark less than 50% will move to the "-3" stream.

Math 20-3 (5 Credits)
The content covered in this course is: surface area, volume and capacity, trigonometry involving more than one triangle, problems involving scale, representations of 2-D and 3-D objects, puzzles that involve numerical

reasoning, personal budget, compound interest, financial institution services, credit card and loans, slope, proportional reasoning, bar graphs, histograms, and line and circle Graphs

Prerequisite: At least 50% in Math 10-3.


Math 30-1 (5 Credits)
Math 30-1 includes the study of exponents and logarithms, trigonometry, relations and functions, permutations, combinations, and the binomial theorem. Students must write a Provincial Diploma exam worth 50% of their grade to complete this course. The format of this exam has now changed and will include only multiple choice and numerical response type questions.

Recommended Prerequisite: 65% in Math 20-1 or Math 30-2.

Math 30-2 (5 Credits)
Math 30-2 includes the study of logical reasoning, probability, relations and functions.  Students must write a Provincial Diploma exam worth 50% of their grade to complete this course. The format of this exam has now changed and will include only multiple choice and numerical response type questions.

Recommended  Prerequisite: 50% in Math 20-2.  Students that get a mark of 50-64% in Math 20-1 should be in this course as well.

Math 31 - Calculus (5 Credits)
This course is designed to introduce you to the mathematical methods of calculus. The course acts as a link between the outcomes of the Mathematics 10-20-30 program and the requirements of the mathematics encountered in post-secondary programs. The course builds on existing skills in working with functions and expands this knowledge to include a study of limits in preparation for a study of differential and integral calculus. The methods of calculus are applied to problems encountered in the areas of science, engineering, business, mathematics and many other fields.
