Mathematics

The mathematics program at École Camrose Composite High School provides all students with a strong foundation of knowledge, processes and problem solving strategies. Many post-secondary programs have minimum mathematics requirements. Math 30-2 is currently being accepted for admission to several post-secondary institutions for programs that do not have mathematics intensive requirements. ​

Which Math is Best for You?

Students going into Grade 10:

To achieve success in a Mathematics course it is very important to have the appropriate foundation. The Mathematics Department has agreed to make the following recommendations:

1.        Only those students having a mark greater than 50% in Math 9 should attempt Math 10-C

2.       Students receiving a mark less than 50% in Math 9 register in Math 10-3.

4. Students that have completed Modified Math 9 should register in Math 10-3.

 

 

MATHEMATICS 10-C

(5 creditsCourse request 131

This course is intended for those students planning to complete Math 30-1 for post secondary programs with an emphasis in math and science; or Math 30-2 students attending post secondary programs or technical schools after high school. Topics include measurement, trigonometry, polynomials, systems of equations and other algebraic topics.

Recommended Mathematics 9 mark of at least 50%.

 

 

MATHEMATICS 10-3

(5 creditsCourse request 132

This course focuses on basic mathematical understandings.  Emphasis is on improvement in basic skill levels.  Subjects studied are ratio and proportion, geometry, measurement, statistics and probability, algebra, and graphing.  Applications to practical circumstances are a priority.

Recommended Mathematics 9 mark less than 50% or student of modified Mathematics 9 program

Mathematics -1if I want to study mathematics or sciences at a university, college, or technical institute and go on to a related career.-is for students who plan to enter post-secondary programs such as engineering, mathematics, sciences, some business studies, or other programs that require advanced math skills. The sequence is a co-requisite for mathematics 31 and may be required for post-secondary calculus courses.-includes topics such as permutations and combinations, relations and functions, sequences and series, and trigonometry.

Mathematics -2 – if I want to attend a university or college, or technical institute after high school, but do not need calculus skills. – is for students wishing to study at the post-secondary level in diverse fields, including arts programs, civil engineering technology, medical technologies, and some apprenticeship programs. This path will fulfill most students’ needs.-is designed with a great deal of flexibility, so that the student can switch sequences in Grade 11 or Grade 12 if his or her interests change.-  includes topics such as relations, functions and equations, probability, statistics, and trigonometry.

Mathematics -3 – if I am interested in learning the mathematics needed to enter most trades or if I want to enter the workforce after high school. – is for students who want to apprentice to a trade or enter the workforce directly after high school. It is designed to meet the entrance requirements of apprentices in most trades programs, specifically levels one to three.– includes topics such as finance, geometry, measurement, and trigonometry.
