Progression Through Mathematics Course Sequence
Mathematics 15 is for students who have failed Math 9 and need a prerequisite for Math 10C or have passed Math 9 with a mark between 50-65%, thus still struggling with major math concepts. (This course does not count towards the required 10 math credits; however, it does count towards the 100 credits required for high school graduation.)
Mathematics 10C is a program designed to provide students with mathematical understanding and critical thinking skills. This program is based on a problem-solving approach that incorporates the mathematical processes, developing a conceptual and procedural understanding of mathematics. Emphasis is placed on developing spatial sense, proportional reasoning, algebraic and graphical reasoning. Students will study numbers (rational and irrational) and number patterns, linear relations and functions, polynomials, operations and exponents. Technology will be used as one of a variety of approaches and tools for creating mathematical understanding.
The content of this course is the same as Mathematics 10C. This course is only available to Extended French Program students.
Mathematics 10 AP
This program is designed for students wishing to write the Advanced Placement Examination in their grade 12 year. Students registering for the AP program should be highly motivated, and have an interest and aptitude in mathematics. The course covers all of the objectives of Mathematics 10C, as outlined by Alberta Learning, with some topics covered in greater depth. The primary technological tool used is the graphing calculator.
Mathématiques 10 AP
The content of this course is the same as Mathematics 10 AP. This course is only available to Extended French Program students.
Students choosing 10-3 follow the 20-3 and 30-3 course sequence through grade 11 and grade 12. This course sequence is ideal for students entering trades or the workforce immediately after high school. Students will study spatial sense through direct and indirect measurement, number sense and critical thinking skills and algebraic reasoning.
This course is recommended for students who have successfully completed Mathematics 10C, and is designed for those who are planning to enter post-secondary programs such as engineering, mathematics, sciences, some business studies, or other programs that require advanced math skills.
Mathematics 20-1 AP
This course is intended for highly motivated and capable students. This course is similar to the Mathematics 20-1, but topics will be covered in more depth. The accelerated pace of the course will allow for the study of pre-calculus material such as interval theory and limits. Graphing calculators will be used to solve problems and develop concepts.
The content of this course is the same as Mathematics 20-1. This course is only available to Extended French Program students.
This course is designed for the student who has successfully completed Mathematics 10C and wishes to study at the post-secondary level in diverse fields, including arts programs, civil engineering technology, medical technologies, and some apprenticeship programs. The sequence of Mathematics 20-2 and 30-2 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. Mathematics 20-2 includes topics such as relations, functions and equations, probability, statistics, and trigonometry.
This course is recommended for students who have successfully completed Mathematics 10-3 and want to apprentice to a trade or enter the workforce directly after high school. The sequence of Mathematics 20-3 and 30-3 is designed to meet the entrance requirements for apprentices in most trade programs, specifically levels one to three. Mathematics 20-3 includes topics such as finance, geometry, measurement, and trigonometry.
This course is for those students wishing to enter post-secondary programs such as engineering or programs that require advanced math skills. This program includes the topics permutations and combinations, relations and functions, transformations and trigonometry.
The content of the course is the same as Mathematics 30-1. This course is only available to Extended French Program students.
This course is recommended for those students wishing to study at the post-secondary level in diverse fields. This path will fulfill most students’ needs and is designed with a great deal of flexibility. Students can switch sequences in grade 11 or 12 if their interests change. This program includes the topics logical reasoning, relations, functions and equations, probability.
This course is intended for students who are intending to pursue post-secondary studies in a university or college in a mathematics intensive program. Mathematics 31 is the study of calculus. Topics studied include derivatives, integral calculus, volumes of solids, calculus of exponential and logarithmic functions and applications of derivatives.
Math 30-1 AP/Math 31 AP
This course is intended for highly motivated and capable students who are intending to pursue post- secondary studies in a mathematics intensive program. The contents of Math 30-1 will be taught over two semesters. The accelerated pace of the course will allow for the study of supplementary material.
Math 31 AP varies significantly from Math 31. The application of derivatives and integrals is studied in more depth. The pre-calculus component, introduced in Math 20-1 AP, is continued with limits, asymptotic and unbounded behaviour, and continuity as a property of functions. The Math 31 AP exam will be written in May, and the Math 30-1 diploma exam will be written in June.
