Foundations of Math and Pre-Calculus 10
Credits: 4
Prerequisite: Math 9 (a minimum grade of C in Math 9 is recommended)

This is a academic math course that requires a very sincere work commitment and a solid background in Math 9. Students will spend much of their time developing their understanding of algebraic/symbolic manipulation and some of the more sophisticated generalizations of theoretical mathematics. The curriculum builds on knowledge and skill developed in Math 9. Topics in Foundations of Math and Pre-Calclulus 10 focus on number systems, exponents, polynomials, factoring, rational expressions and equations, relations and functions, measurement, and finances.

This is the only Math 10 course that keeps all post secondary options open.


This provincially examinable math course is intended for those students who are not pursuing a technical, science, or calculus based post graduation path, and who do not mind closing some possible doors in their post graduate career. This pathway is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for entry into the majority of trades and for direct entry into the work force.

Topics include algebra, geometry, measurement, number, statistics and probability and problem solving skills that utilize these skills in everyday applications (e.g. home finance, applied skills, transportation, measurement, data analysis, etc.). AWM 10 leads to AWM 11, which is acceptable as grade 11 math, needed for high school graduation.

Note: This is a provincially examinable course.
