well-rounded student in today’s ever-changing society. At FRC,

math

programs focus on the essential skills necessary to ensure success at the

next level of math. Students are

given opportunities to assess their own

level of achievement with each of these

skills and will be expected to

continuously practice and demonstrate their

proficiency in these topics.

This

remedial Mathematics 10F is a

prerequisite to Grade 10 mathematics courses. It

is only available to

students who have previously completed the course but

failed to earn their

Grade 9 Math credit.

__Choosing__

a Program for Grade 10a Program for Grade 10

Both

courses at the grade 10 level are designed to provide students with the

mathematical understandings, rigour, and critical-thinking skills that have been

identified for specific post-secondary programs of study and for direct entry

into the workforce.

In

making your decision please consider the following:

a) How successful was the student in Grade 9 Math? Was his/her mark an accurate reflection of ability and effort? If the mark was between:

i) 50% and 65% - consider

Essential Mathematics

ii) Over 65% - consider

Introduction to Applied and Pre-Calculus Mathematic

b) What are the student’s educational plans after graduation

c) How hard is the student prepared to work?

__Essential__

Math 20S (MES 20S)Math 20S (MES 20S)

Essential Math is intended to help students become “informed”

consumers and will provide students with the necessary skills. This course

prepares students by teaching them number sense, consumer problem-solving and

decision-making. Course strands

include: personal finance,

trigonometry, measurement, consumer decisions, angle construction and

transformations. Upon successful completion of this course, students will enrol

in Essential Math 30S. (Prerequisite:

MATH10F)

__Introduction__

to Applied and Pre-Calculus Math 20S (MIAP 20S)to Applied and Pre-Calculus Math 20S (MIAP 20S)

This course is intended for students who have achieved a minimum

mark of 65% in grade 9 math and are interested in pursuing post-secondary

studies that could include the study of theoretical

calculus.

Problem solving activities, mental mathematics exercises and

cumulative testing are featured in this course. In addition, students will require a

scientific calculator with graphing functions.

Upon completion of this course, students will then choose to

continue studying in one of two specialized streams of math: Pre-Calculus 30S

(for students that intend to pursue post-secondary studies that require the

study of theoretical calculus) or Applied 30S. (Prerequisite:

MATH 10F)

**Pre-Calculus**

Math 30S (MPC 30S)Math 30S (MPC 30S)

Pre-Calculus Mathematics (30S) is designed for students who

earned a minimum mark of 65% in MIAP20S and intend to study calculus and related

mathematics as part of post-secondary education. It builds on the topics studied

in Grade 10 Introduction to Applied and Pre-Calculus Mathematics and provides

background knowledge and skills for Grade 12 Pre-Calculus Mathematics. The

course provides a high-level study of theoretical mathematics with an emphasis

on problem solving and mental mathematics. The topics include the study of

algebra, quadratic functions, reciprocal functions, and trigonometry.

(Prerequisite:

MIAP20S)

__Applied__

Math 30S (MAP 30S)

Math 30S (MAP 30S)

Applied

Mathematics (30S) is intended for students

considering

post-secondary studies that do not require a

study

of theoretical calculus. It is context driven and

promotes

the learning of numerical and geometrical

problem-solving

techniques as they relate to the world

around

us. It builds upon the foundation knowledge and

skills

from Grade 10 Introduction to Applied and Pre-Calculus Mathematics and builds a

foundation for Grade 12 Applied Mathematics.

The

course includes the

following

topics: measurement, geometry, logical reasoning,

statistics,

and relations and functions. (Prerequisite: MIAP20S)

__Essential__

Math 30S (MES 30S)Math 30S (MES 30S)

This course is intended for students whose post-secondary

planning does not include a focus on mathematics and science-related fields.

Essential Mathematics is a course consisting of strands which emphasize consumer

applications, problem solving, decision making, and spatial sense. This course

builds on the knowledge and skills of Grade 10 Essential Mathematics and

provides a foundation for the topics studied in Grade 12 Essential

Mathematics. (Prerequisite:

MES20S/MIAP20S)

__Pre-Calculus__

Math 40S (MPC 40S)Math 40S (MPC 40S)

Grade

12 Pre-calculus Mathematics (40S) is intended for students who intend to study

calculus and related mathematics as part of a post-secondary education and have

earned at least 65% in Pre-calculus 30S. It builds on the topics studied in

Grade 11 Pre-calculus Mathematics and provides background knowledge and skills

for the study of calculus in post-secondary

institutions.

The

course comprises a high level of theoretical mathematics with an emphasis on

problem solving and mental mathematics. The topics include study of

transformations of functions, trigonometric functions, exponential functions,

logarithmic functions, polynomial functions, radical functions, rational

functions and the binomial theorem.

__Applied__

Math 40S (MAP 40S)Math 40S (MAP 40S)

Grade

12 Applied Mathematics (40S) is intended for students considering post-secondary

studies that do not require a study of theoretical calculus. It is context

driven and promotes the learning of numerical and geometrical problem, solving

techniques as they relate to the world around us.

The

course includes the following topics: Financial Mathematics, Logical Reasoning,

Probability, Relations and Functions, and Design Measurement. Additionally,

students will complete a Mathematics Research

Project.

__Essential__

Grade

12 Essential Mathematics (40S) is intended for those students whose

post-secondary planning does not include a focus on mathematics and science

related fields. Grade 12 Essential Mathematics (40S) is a course which

emphasizes consumer applications, problem solving, decision making and spatial

sense.

__Calculus__

45S (MCI 45S)45S (MCI 45S)

Calculus

is a branch of mathematics that allows students to further develop their skills

in algebra and the properties of functions and to apply the tools of calculus to

solving practical problems. Any

student intending to study Calculus at the university level should enrol in this course. It is recommended that

students complete Pre-Calculus 40S before taking Calculus 45S or take

Pre-Calculus 40S concurrently. (Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus

30S)
