The high school Mathematics program is designed to prepare you to solve problems, communicate and reason mathematically, make connections between mathematics and its applications, appreciate and value mathematics, and make informed decisions as a contributor to society. When it comes to math, it’s important to choose courses appropriate to your abilities, interests and future goals. Your previous math marks will also help to indicate which courses are most appropriate for you.
There are three main course sequences in Mathematics:
Mathematics 10C (Common) This course is the starting point for both -1 and -2 course sequences, and will prepare you for entry into post secondary programs that may require math. You must have 55% in Grade 9 Math to enter this course.
Mathematics 20-1 and 30-1 prepare you for entry into post secondary programs that require the study of calculus. Topics include algebra, measurement, relations and functions, trigonometry, permutations, combinations and binomial theorem.
Mathematics 20-2 and 30-2 prepare you for post secondary studies in programs that do not require the study of calculus. Topics include geometry, measurement, number and logic, logical reasoning, relations and functions, statistics, and probability.
Mathematics 10-3, 20-3 and 30-3 prepare you for entry into the majority of trades and for direct entry into the work force. Topics include algebra, geometry, measurement, number, statistics and probability.
Mathematics 31 is an advanced mathematics course that prepares you for post secondary programs that recommend or require calculus as an entrance requirement. If you’re considering Math 31, you’ll need to take Mathematics 30-1.
