**Mathematics**

**Mathematics 9** – All students in Grade 9 must take this required course. Topics covered in this course include problem solving with integers and order of operations, exponents, linear equations and relations, proportional reasoning, algebra, statistics in society and financial literacy. Emphasis of the course is to develop computational fluency through applied problem solving, and to develop mathematical skills of reasoning and analyzing, understanding and solving, communicating and representing, then connecting and reflecting. Students will connect the MYP (Middle Year Program) Approaches to Learning to their learning in this course.

**Workplace Mathematics Pathways Grades 10 & 11
**This pathway 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 rate of change, creating and interpreting graphs, metric and imperial measurement and conversions, 3D objects, statistics and probability, financial literacy and trigonometry.

**Foundations of Mathematics Grades Pathways 11 & 12
**This pathway is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for postsecondary studies in programs that do not require the study of theoretical calculus. Topics include financial mathematics, geometry, measurement, number, logical reasoning, relations and functions, statistics and probability.

**Pre-calculus Grades 11 & 12 Pathways
**This pathway 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 theoretical calculus. Topics include algebra and number, measurement, relations and functions, trigonometry, and permutations, combinations and binomial theorem.

**Mathematics 10** – Mathematics 10 is a graduation requirement. All students in Grade 10 must take **one** of the following Grade 10 required mathematics courses:

**Workplace Math 10** – Topics covered in this course are algebra, geometry, measurement, number, financial literacy, and trigonometry.

**Foundations of Math & Pre-Calculus 10** – Topics covered in this course are algebra, number, geometry, measurement, relations and functions, trigonometry and logical thinking, and financial literacy.

**Mathematics 11** – Mathematics 11 is a graduation requirement. All students in Grade 11 must take at least **one** of the following Grade 11 required mathematics courses:

**Workplace Math 11** – Prerequisite: Apprenticeship and Workplace Mathematics 10 or Foundations of Mathematics and Pre-Calculus 10. This course is designed for students intending to enter into the majority of trades and for direct entry into the work force. Topics include algebra, geometry, measurement, number, and statistics.

**Foundations of Mathematics 11** – Prerequisite: Foundations of Mathematics and Pre-Calculus 10 recommended. This is an academic course that expands on some of the topics studied in Foundations and Pre-Calculus Math 10. Topics: Systems of equations and quadratic functions, logical reasoning, statistics, spatial and angle geometry, and financial literacy. This course is for students intending to study social sciences such as sociology, psychology, education, fine arts, political sciences, criminology, geography, languages, or history. Check with your counselor to see if this course will meet your post secondary entrance requirements.

**Pre-Calculus 11** – Prerequisite: Foundations of Mathematics and Pre-Calculus 10 recommended. This is an academic course that expands on some of the topics studied in Foundations and Pre-Calculus Math 10. Topics include algebra and numbers, trigonometry, relations and functions, and financial literacy. This course is for students intending to study empirical sciences such as chemistry, biology, computer sciences, business, mathematics, or engineering. Check with your counselor to see if this course will meet your post secondary entrance requirements.

**Mathematics 12** – The following courses are prerequisite courses for many post secondary programs. Please check program entrance requirements for your chosen institution and programme.

**Foundations of Mathematics 12** – Prerequisite: Foundations of Mathematics 11 recommended. This is an academic course that expands on some of the topics studied in Foundations Math 11. Topics: Conics,fractals, functions and relations, regression analysis, combinatorics, probability, and financial literacy. This course is for students intending to study social sciences such as sociology, psychology, education, fine arts, political sciences, criminology, geography, languages, or history. Check with your counselor to see if this course will meet your post secondary entrance requirements.

**Pre-Calculus 12** – Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus Mathematics 11 is recommended. Topics covered are trigonometry, quadratic relations, exponential and logarithmic functions, polynomial sequence and series, permutations, combinations and statistics. This course is designed for students strong in Mathematics and is required for several university programs such as chemistry, biology, computer sciences, business, mathematics, or engineering. Check with your counselor to see if this course will meet your post secondary entrance requirements. Use of a graphing calculator is required.

**Calculus 12** – Prerequisite: This is a course for students who have completed or are enrolled in Pre-Calculus Mathematics 12 or IB Mathematics SL and would like an introductory course in Calculus. This course is designed for secondary students and should serve as a bridge to the calculus courses required in first year university.
