Grade 10 Intro to Applied and Pre-Calculus
Be sure to get on Edsby for updates on marks, course materials, class communication, and parent communication.
Here is a detailed course outline for this course.
Grade 12 Applied Math is a very practical course that focuses on making connections with real life situations and examples. Our 3 main topics for the year are finance, probability and functions (using the graphing calculator). Applied Math is a University entrance course for students that do not need to take Calculus. All students take a provincial exam in June.
In Grade 11, Applied Math branches off from Pre-Calculus into it's own course. We focus on making math connections with life, which means we do a lot of real-life context problem solving. If you want to take a University entrance math course that is not heading in the direction of Calculus in University, this is the course for you.
Grade 10 Introduction to Applied and Pre-Calculus builds a foundation for both of the respective Grade 11 math courses. Applied Math focuses on real-world, context-based problem solving. Pre-Calculus is highly driven by equation solving, graphing and theoretical thinking. This Grade 10 course will be a balance of these two.
Grade 8 Science is an exciting class where we will be exploring topics such as cells, light, fluids and water systems. I'm looking forward to doing science with you this year!
