Course Progression Map
Who should take the Mathematics-1 course sequence?
Mathematics-1 is designed for students who plan to apply for post-secondary programs that require calculus skills.
If you want to enter a post-secondary program such as engineering, mathematics, sciences, some business studies, or other programs that require advanced math skills, you should take Mathematics-1.
Mathematics-1 includes topics such as permutations and combinations, relations and functions, sequences and series, and trigonometry.
Mathematics 30-1 is a co-requisite for Mathematics 31 and may be required for post-secondary calculus courses.
Who should take the Mathematics-2 course sequence?
Mathematics-2 is designed for students who want to attend a university, college, or technical institute after high school, but do not need calculus skills.
If you want to study at the post-secondary level in fields such as arts programs, civil engineering technology, medical technologies, or some apprenticeship programs, you should take Mathematics-2. This sequence will fulfill most high-school students’ needs.
Mathematics-2 includes topics such as relations, functions and equations, probability, statistics, and trigonometry.
Who should take the Mathematics-3 course sequence?
Mathematics-3 is designed for students who want to learn the mathematics needed to enter most trades or want to enter the workforce after high school.
Mathematics-3 includes topics such as finance, geometry, measurement, and trigonometry.
Most apprenticeship training programs in Alberta will recommend students successfully complete Mathematics 30-3. However, a small number of apprenticeship training programs may require students to complete the -2 course sequence in order to meet the mathematics entrance level competencies for those trades. Further information regarding apprenticeships can be found at http://www.albertacanada.com/opportunity/work/credentials-regulated-trades.aspx
NOTE: No matter the course sequence you choose you should always check the most up-to-date information on post-secondary mathematics entrance requirements, which is available on the Alberta Learning Information Service (ALIS) website and directly from the institutions themselves.
