Mathematics 8 (MMA- -08)
This course should be viewed as a richer extension of Mathematics 7. The emphasis is on multiplicative reasoning applied to mathematical objects encountered in elementary mathematics, such as integers and fractions. Ratio and rates, surface areas and volumes, and linear relations are among the key concepts explored in this course.
Mathematics 8 (MMA- -08POD)
This course is intended for students who need a thorough review of foundational concepts, and a good grounding in the fundamentals of Mathematics 8. In most cases students would have been recommended by their elementary school teacher. Successful students will move on to Mathematics 9, upon recommendation of the teacher, or to Math 9 POD.
Mathematics 9 (MMA- -09)
Reasoning and foundational algebraic concepts (linear equations) are the focus in this course. Students will explore notions such as inequality and non-linear growth, and learn deductive reasoning skills in the context of circle geometry.
Mathematics 9 POD (MMA- -09POD)
This course has its content selected and organized for the continuing learner who is weak in basic skills. It continues to extend the development of basic skills learned in previous courses. Successful students may move on to Foundations Math 10/Pre-Calculus Math 10 upon recommendation of the teacher. In most cases, students will move on to Apprenticeship and Workplace Math 10 the following year.
Apprenticeship & Workplace Math 10 (MAWM-10)
This course is intended for students who do not need abstract algebraic skills for their future studies including students who plan to enter college programs such as those offered by BCIT or Langara. The focus will be on re-enforcement of fundamental reasoning skills in the contexts of income and currency exchange, basic trigonometry, analysis of games and puzzles, and manipulation of formulas.
Foundations & Pre-Calculus Math 10 (MFMP-10)
This course is intended for students who have demonstrated mastery of Mathematics 8 and Mathematics 9. The level of abstraction in this course is a quantum leap up from earlier years. The building blocks of calculus – functions, slope, and polynomial algebra – are at the core of this course. Students completing this course will have three options for the following year.
