**MATHEMATICS 9** **MMA--09**

Prerequisite: Math 8

Leads to: Apprenticeship & Workplace Math 10 or Foundations of Math & Pre-Calculus 10

The course builds on Mathematics 8 in the areas of Number, Patterns and Relations, Shape and Space, and Statistics and Probability. Special attention is paid to the arithmetic of rational numbers and exponents. Algebra continues with linear equations and inequalities and an introduction to polynomials. Students also study some circle geometry, further properties of 3D objects, symmetry, and collection and analysis of data.

**MATHEMATICS 9 MINI** **MMA--09MIN**

Prerequisite: Math 8 MINI

Leads to: Foundations of Math & Pre-Calculus 10E (Enriched)

This course is open to students in the Mini School Program at Templeton. The course builds on Mathematics 8 in the areas of Number, Patterns and Relations, Shape and Space, and Statistics and Probability. Special attention is paid to the arithmetic of rational numbers and exponents. Algebra continues with linear equations and inequalities and an introduction to polynomials. Students also study some circle geometry, further properties of 3D objects, symmetry, and collection and analysis of data.

**APPRENTICESHIP & WORKPLACE MATHEMATICS 10 MAWM-10**

Prerequisite: Math 9 or Math 9A

Leads to: Apprenticeship & Workplace Math 11 or Foundations of Math & Pre-Calculus 10 with teacher recommendation

The Apprenticeship and Workplace Mathematics pathway is considered less challenging than the Foundations of Mathematics and Pre-Calculus pathways. The mathematics is useful and much of it is appealing. The course includes practical topics such as unit pricing, income, and SI and Imperial units. In addition, it includes the algebra of formula manipulation, spatial puzzles and games, Pythagoras’ Theorem, and similarity of shapes. Usually a student would continue with Apprenticeship and Workplace Math 11, although Foundations of Math and Pre-Calculus 10 is possible with a strong teacher recommendation. This course is Ministry-examinable.

**FOUNDATIONS OF MATHEMATICS & PRE-CALCULUS 10** **MFMP-10**

Prerequisite: Math 9 or Math 9 Challenge or Math 9 Adapted with teacher recommendation

Leads to: Apprenticeship & Workplace Math 10 or Apprenticeship & Workplace Math 11, Foundations of Math & Pre-Calculus 10, or Pre-Calculus 11, all dependent on teacher recommendation

At the Grade 10 level, the major area of study is algebra and number theory, including radical expressions, irrational numbers, trinomials, and polynomials. There is also some measurement theory. Depending on a student’s ability and mastery of the topics, the teacher may recommend continuation with Foundations of Math 11 or Pre-Calculus 11 (or both), or Apprenticeship and Workplace Math. This course is Ministry-examinable.

**FOUNDATIONS OF MATHEMATICS & PRE-CALCULUS 10** **MFMP-10E (Enriched) MFMP-10E**

Prerequisite: Math 9 MINI or Math 9 with teacher recommendation

Leads to: Pre-Calculus 11

This course is recommended for students who completed Math 9 Mini or students who completed Math 9 with teacher recommendation. At the Grade 10 level, the major area of study is algebra and number theory, including radical expressions, irrational numbers, trinomials, and polynomials. There is also some measurement theory. Some mathematical topics will be explored in greater depth. This course is Ministry-examinable.

**APPRENTICESHIP & WORKPLACE MATHEMATICS 11 MAWM-11**

Prerequisite: Apprenticeship & Workplace Math 10 or Foundations of Math & Pre-Calculus 10

This course is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for entry into the majority of trades, via a technical college or a trade school, and for direct entry into the workforce. Topics studied include measurement, financial concepts, geometry, and trigonometry. This course gives students the graduation requirement in mathematics.

**PRE-CALCULUS 11** **MPREC11**

Prerequisite: Foundations of Math & Pre-Calculus 10. It is recommended that students have obtained at least a “B” grade from MFMP--10. Students who obtain less than a “B” grade from MFMP--10 are recommended to take Apprenticeship & Workplace Math 11.

This course is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for entry into post-secondary studies in programs that require the study of theoretical calculus. Typically, a student would be planning to enter a college or university in a mathematics, science, engineering, medicine, or commerce program. The main areas of study are mathematical functions and sequences and trigonometry. This course gives students the graduation requirement in mathematics. Because there is not a large overlap between this course and Foundations of Mathematics 11, some students may wish to take both courses.

**PRE-CALCULUS 12** **MPREC12**

Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus 11. It is recommended that students have obtained at least a C grade from Pre-Calculus 11. Foundations of Math 11 is not a sufficient prerequisite for this course.

This course is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for entry into post-secondary studies in programs that require the study of theoretical calculus. Typically, a student would be planning to enter a college or university in a mathematics, science, engineering, medicine, or commerce program. Topics studied include functions and relations, trigonometry, combinatorics, and the binomial theorem. For non-technical post-secondary studies, Pre-Calculus 11 may be a sufficient prerequisite, and students should check with their counsellors in individual cases.

**CALCULUS 12** **MCALC12**

Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus 11 and Co-Requisite/Pre-Requisite: Pre-Calculus 12

Calculus is one of the greatest products of the human intellect. The discovery of calculus made our technological society possible. It is not surprising that calculus courses are required for most university and college academic programs. A major goal of the Calculus 12 course is to prepare students to succeed in these courses at university or college. However, we hope that students will find calculus interesting and inspiring for its own sake. We will cover all the foundational topics in differential and integral calculus. There is no provincial exam, but students should be prepared to work hard to make the most of this course. An A or at least a high B in Pre-Calculus 11 should be regarded as a prerequisite. Students should either have completed Pre-Calculus 12 or be studying Pre-Calculus 12 concurrently with Calculus 12.

**ADVANCED PLACEMENT CALCULUS AB ACAL-12**

Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus 11 and Co-Requisite/Pre-Requisite: Pre-Calculus 12

All of the topics studied in Calculus 12 are covered plus some additional topics necessary for the AP Calculus AB curriculum. Students will be expected to take the AP Calculus AB exam in May. Success in this exam is counted as a calculus credit by most universities or colleges, meaning that students need not take the first calculus course at university or college. The Templeton course has been audited and approved by the College Board, the organization responsible for the Advanced Placement program. AP Calculus is challenging. It is recommended that students should either have completed Pre-Calculus 12 *or* obtained an A in Pre-Calculus 11 and be studying Pre-Calculus 12 concurrently with AP Calculus.
