Mathematics is the science and study of quantity, structure, space and change. Mathematicians seek out patterns, formulate new conjectures and establish truth through measurement and application of tested equations.

This course is for those students who need to review basic concepts in math. Students may choose the units which they feel they need to work on. Initial units include place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers. Further units explore fractions, decimals, area & volume, metric conversions, angles, and statistics. Students are encouraged to answer the questions without the use of a calculator. There is no textbook as each unit is a handout.
This course is designed for students who plan to take either Foundations of Math 11 or Pre-Calculus 11, but whose math background is not strong enough to enable them to proceed directly to those courses. It provides a “bridge” to enable students to obtain the prerequisite skills necessary for success in Foundations of Math 11 or Pre-Calculus 11. Topics covered include metric and imperial measurement, basic trigonometry, factoring, radicals, rational numbers, and polynomials. Students will need a scientific calculator (preferably a Sharp brand) which they will learn to use extensively while working with integers, fractions, exponents, and roots.
This is a very practical math course that involves concepts students will use in everyday life. Some of these concepts include managing money, borrowing & investing, measurement, slope & proportion, owning & operating a vehicle, graphing, and basic trigonometry. Students will use a scientific calculator extensively as a tool to help solve mathematical problems. There is no textbook as each unit is a handout.
This course is not quite as abstract as Pre-Calculus 11 but is still quite challenging. It explores topics such as deductive and inductive reasoning, properties of angles & triangles, trigonometry, statistics, linear inequalities, quadratic functions, and proportions. Part of the course involves learning how to use some of the functions of a graphing calculator. Students will need the textbook Foundations of Mathematics 11 (Nelson) as well as a graphing calculator. These can both be borrowed from our school for a deposit of $100, which is refundable if both are returned in good condition.
This is a challenging math course that deals with abstract concepts, which are often used to solve real-life problems. Topics include Sequences & Series, Trigonometry, Quadratics, Radicals, Rational Expressions, Absolute Value, Systems of Equations, and Inequalities. Students will need the textbook Pre-Calculus 11 (McGraw-Hill Ryerson) as well as a graphing calculator. These can both be borrowed from our school for a deposit of $100, which is refundable if both are returned in good condition.
An introductory course in accounting, this course is suitable for all students, and is especially good for those interested in running their own business. Students interested in accounting or business management as a career are strongly advised to take this course. The course covers accounting theory, the journal through worksheets and specific business applications.
** Note: This course meets the math requirements for an Adult Graduation Diploma only.
