Mathematics

MATHEMATICS 10-3 (5 Credits)

This course is designed for students that will enter apprenticeship programs and the workforce.  Topics include finance, geometry, measurements and trigonometry. Some topics from junior high mathematics will be covered to improve the skill level of students.

MATHEMATICS 10C (Common) (5 Credits)

Math 10C emphasizes the application of mathematics and the testing of mathematical hypotheses.  In this course there is a focus on numerical and geometric approaches to solve problems.  In 10C, algebra is taught where needed.  The technology required for Math 10C consists of computers and spreadsheet programs (graphing calculators are required for this course). Students must pass grade 9 Mathematics to enter 10C. 

MATHEMATICS 10C - Pre-AP (5 Credits)

The Math 10C Pre-AP course is designed for those students who plan to take Math 20AP (Advanced Placement Program). This course covers all Math 10C topics at an accelerated rate as well as other topics that a Math 10C student would not see until the grade 11 course.

MATHEMATICS 20-3 (5 Credits)

A continuation of Mathematics 10-3, this course completes the mathematics requirements for an Alberta High School Diploma. The topics include surface area and volume, scale drawings, personal finance, slope as a rate of change, analyzing graphs and proportional reasoning.

 MATHEMATICS 20-2 (5 Credits)

This course is a continuation of Math 10C.  Like Math 10C, the application of mathematics is emphasized and technology is focused on.  This sequence of courses is designed for students interested in a variety of programs at some universities, colleges and technical institutes, including some apprenticeship programs, i.e.: Art programs, civil engineering technology, medical technologies, etc. This sequence is designed to fit the needs of most students.  Topics include proportional reasoning, geometry and trigonometry, logical reasoning, statistics and quadratic functions and equations.

MATHEMATICS 20-1 (5 Credits)

This course is a continuation of Math 10C and is recommended for students who experienced a high degree of success in Math 10C.   Like Math 10C, Math 20-1 emphasizes mathematical theory and focuses on algebra.  This course sequence is recommended for students that will seek entrance into post-secondary programs at universities, colleges and technical schools that require further study of mathematics; i.e., Engineering, Mathematics, Sciences, Business.  This sequence is a co-requisite for Math 31 (Calculus).  Topics include operations and equations involving radical and rational expressions, arithmetic and geometric sequences and series, sine and cosine laws, quadratic functions, equations and inequalities, absolute value and reciprocal functions.

MATHEMATICS 20-1 AP (5 Credits)

This course is a continuation of Math 10C Pre- AP and is recommended for students who experienced a high degree of success in Math 10C Pre - AP. Like Math 10C Pre-AP, Math 20-1 AP emphasizes mathematical theory and focuses on algebra. This course sequence is recommended for students that will seek entrance into post-secondary programs at universities, colleges and technical schools that require further study of mathematics; i.e., Engineering, Mathematics, Sciences, Business. This sequence is a co-requisite for Math 31 (Calculus). Topics include operations and equations involving radical and rational expressions, arithmetic and geometric sequences and series, sine and cosine laws, quadratic functions, equations and inequalities, absolute value and reciprocal functions.

MATHEMATICS LEARNING STRATEGIES (3 Credits)

Math Learning Strategies is a three-credit courses offered at the 10, 20 and 30 level Math courses.  Students who want additional time and extra-help to master course objectives are encouraged to enroll in this class.  Students will take this class in the same semester as they take the applicable math course.  It is offered every second day, and is always offered alternating with another 3 credit course.

MATHEMATICS 30 - 3 (5 Credits)

A continuation of Math 20-3 and includes topics such as Finance, Coordinate Geometry, Measurement, Trigonometry, and Statistics. There is NO diploma exam written at the end of this course.

MATHEMATICS 30 - 2 (5 Credits)

This course is a continuation of Math 20-2 and is recommended for students who experienced a high level of success in Math 30-2.   This course emphasizes mathematical theory in topics such as Measurement, Geometry, Number and Logic, Statistics, and Relations and Functions.  It also expects students to communicate their solutions in many ways.  Problems are both routine and non-routine.   Pre-requisite courses are Math 20-2 or Math 20-1.  A diploma exam is written at the end of this course. 

MATHEMATICS 30 - 1 (5 Credits)

This course is a continuation of Math 20 -1 and is recommended for students who experienced a high level of success in Math 20-1. This course emphasizes mathematical theory in topics such as Functions and Relations, Logarithmic and Trigonometric Functions, and Permutations/Combinations. It also expects students to communicate their solutions in many ways. Problems are both routine and non-routine. Pre-requisite courses are Math 30-1. This course moves very quickly and consistently requires high-level thinking. A diploma exam is written at the end of this course.

MATHEMATICS 30 - 1 AP (5 Credits)

This course is a continuation of Math 20 - 1 AP that also covers all the components for the Math 30 - 1 Alberta Curriculum.   Upon completion of the course work, students will write the Mathematics 30 - 1 diploma exam.

MATHEMATICS 31 (5 Credits)

This course is strongly recommended for students who plan to take university calculus.  Students are introduced to calculus.  The course is especially designed for students wishing to study in pure science, mathematics, business or engineering at university.  There is no diploma exam for this course.

MATHEMATICS 31 AP (5 Credits)

This course is the final stage of the AP mathematics program.  Upon completion of this course, students will write the AP mathematics exam.  Topics include: differential calculus, integral calculus, vectors and matrices.  There is no diploma exam for this course.
