MathWorks 11 was developed to address the outcomes and philosophy of the Apprenticeship and Workplace Mathematics Grade 11 course. The Workplace and Apprenticeship Mathematics pathway was designed for students who may want to pursue post-secondary studies in trades,
certified occupations, or direct entry into the workforce. Consequently, MathWorks 11 delivers the curriculum outcomes through projects, activities, and problems set in real-world contexts, enabling students to make connections between school mathematics and the workplace.

Units covered are Slope and Rate of Change, Graphical Representations, Surface Area, Volume, and Capacity, Trigonometry, Scale Representations, Financial Services, and Budgets.

Prerequisite: 2 courses in English 10

CHEK ABC English courses in Grades 10, 11 and 12 are courses developed by CHEK ABC professional teaching staff. Teachers trained as specialists in English have developed these English courses so that the courses will reflect the high Christian standards of the school and at the same time meet all the requirements of the BC Ministry of Education. The course content deals with the real world as it is in its brokenness and sorrow but at the same time is guided by Philippians 4:8 in which the Christian is encouraged to think on that which is the highest and the best.

The CHEK ABC English courses are unique in that the major pieces of literature such as novels or plays at each grade level have printed supplements that have been prepared by a CHEK ABC English teacher who is not only a specialist in the teaching of English but is also a specialist in integrating faith and learning into educational materials. These supplements examine the novel or play within a Christian context and give a Christian perspective to the piece of literature. This enables the student to pursue the study of the novel or play and in doing so see how faith and learning has been integrated into the subject matter to develop a Christian perspective on the novel or the play.

Literary Studies 11

This course is designed to provide a solid basis upon which students can continue to build on their language skills through reading, writing, speaking and listening. Students will consider literature selections of strong quality that include poetry, short stories, novels, and dramas, some of which will be media renditions of these works. The wide range of literature to be studied includes classic works from the past to those of more modern times and includes authors from Europe to North America.

As students work through specific literary works and genres, they will be encouraged to be critical analyzers of what they read and view. Students will be required to provide critical analysis from a literary point of view and in doing so consider the Christian perspective and how that perspective either contrasts with or harmonizes with the worldview of the author. The student in the study of the assigned novel will consider the Christian perspective on sadly broken lives in a sadly broken world where the emptiness of life and the pursuit of self interest leads to more sorrow and heartbreak. The nature of man to ignore Divine institutions designed for man's good will be considered. Similarly in the study of Shakespeare's drama, Macbeth, the Christian perspective upon good and evil, Divine order, conscience, human government and human choice will be presented.

It is expected that the student will become increasingly familiar with what the Bible teaches and how to apply the Christian world view to the real world as the only rational sustainable way to understand the universe.

Students will also learn to be confident communicators of what they learn. They will be required to conduct research and in writing a critical analysis or completing an assignment they will clearly and succinctly present their thoughts in a logical and consistent manner demonstrating writing skills and proper grammatical usage.
