Bridging Math 9 (not a credit class)
This is a grade 10 non-credit class that students enter when they are not working at their current grade level in math. If a student is struggling in the regular math program they will be placed in Bridging math to fill in any gaps that they may have. Once they have filled in those gaps they are ready to go back into the regular math programs. Students can spend anywhere from one term to four terms in the program. Once a student is finished Bridging math they are able to take Math 11 or 21, foundations, or workplace math.
Mathematics 11 is a modified course designed for theme-based instruction, which should enable students to broaden their understanding of mathematics as it is applied in important areas of day-to-day living. In this course, emphasis is placed on making informed decisions about finances, home design and maintenance, personal recreation and wellness, and travel and transportation. All mathematics relate to the themes: Earning and Spending Money, Home, Recreation and Wellness, and Travel and Transportation.
This is an individual self-paced program, however, students should be working, learning, and mastering mathematics during class.
Prerequisite: Math 11
Recommended Prerequisite: Mathematics 11, Foundations and Pre-Calculus 10, and/or Workplace and Apprenticeship 10
This course is designed for theme-based instruction, which enables students to broaden their understanding of mathematics as it is applied in important areas of day to day living. The goal of Math 21 is that it provides students an opportunity to explore mathematics in their lives and transfer meaningful skills and knowledge.
In this course, all mathematics relates to the themes: Earning and Spending Money (finances), Home (home design and maintenance), Recreation and Personal Wellness, and Travel and Transportation. There are nine Modules that need to be completed to receive the credit.
Prerequisite: Math 9
This is one of two math courses at the Grade 10 level. Foundations and Pre-calculus Mathematics is the math class you need if you would like to continue in either Foundation Mathematics 20 or Pre-calculus 20 pathway. Topics covered include measurement, trigonometric ratios, polynomials, roots, powers, relations, linear functions and systems of linear equations.
Workplace and Apprenticeship Math 10
Prerequisite: Math 9
This is one of two math courses at the Grade 10 level. Workplace and Apprenticeship Math, often called Trades Math, explores math concepts geared towards the trades and workplace. Consumer math and trades geometry make up most of the course content.
Foundations Math 20
Prerequisite: Foundations Math 10
Foundations of Mathematics 20 course is based upon the students’ prior learning and continues to develop their number sense, spatial sense, logical thinking, and understanding of mathematics as a human endeavour. The learning experience prepares students to be confident, flexible, and capable with their mathematical knowledge in new contexts. The outcomes in this course are the prerequisite outcomes for the Foundations of Mathematics 30 course. In this course students will learn inductive and deductive reasoning skills, proportional reasoning, cosine and sine laws, statistical analysis, and hone their algebra skills with linear inequalities and quadratic functions.
Prerequisite: Foundations Math 10
Pre-Calculus 20: Topics covered: Absolute value, radicals, trigonometry, rational expressions & equations, factoring, quadratic functions, quadratic equations, inequalities, reciprocal functions, sequences and series.
Workplace and Apprenticeship Math 20
Prerequisite: Workplace and Apprenticeship Math 10
This class covers the needs of students intending to pursue careers in the trades and general workplace. This course is pre-requisite to Workplace and Apprenticeship Mathematics 30. In order to take Workplace and Apprenticeship Mathematics 20, students The Workplace and Apprenticeship pathway meets the must have passed Workplace and Apprenticeship Mathematics 10.
Foundations Math 30
Prerequisite: Foundations Math 20
Foundations of Math 30 represents the ways of thinking or behaving like a mathematics discipline area expert in those fields of study or areas of work. The mathematical knowledge and skills acquired through this course will be useful to students in many applications throughout their lives in both work and non-work settings. In this course students will: learn financial borrowing and investing fundamentals, enhance their inductive and deductive reasoning skills, be introduced to set theory and its applications, work with probability and odds, work with permutations and combinations, and hone their mathematical skills using higher order polynomials, logarithms, trig functions, exponential functions and their regressions.
Pre-Calculus Math 30
Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus Math 20
Pre-Calculus 30: Topics covered: The unit circle, trigonometric functions, trigonometric equations and identities, logarithmic and exponential functions and equations, counting principles, transformations and composition of functions, radical functions, rational function and polynomial functions.
Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus Math 30
Calculus 30 is an elective course designed to not only prepare students for further mathematical studies, but also to provide a sense of integration and interrelatedness
between prior mathematical and scientific learnings while expanding the students’ understandings into new mathematical concepts. This curriculum has been developed in response to an articulated need from the schools and school divisions in Saskatchewan and is an essential tool in preparing students for post-secondary calculus courses.
Workplace Apprenticeship Math 30
Prerequisite: Workplace and Apprenticeship Math 20
Students use their prior learning as they continue to develop their mathematical skills. Topics covered include limits to measurement, properties of geometric figures, transformations, sine and cosine laws, linear relations, statistics, probability and odds, and a look at the cost of borrowing money. Projects and hands on experiences are also at the core of this class.
