Most frequent questions and answers
It depends entirely on the program you wish to take. Generally, science and technology programs require Math 30-1 but many programs in the Humanities and Arts have no math requirement or accept Math 30-2. Some programs, like Engineering, require Math 31. It is important to check with the particular institution and program to be certain of the requirements.
The AP courses move at a faster pace and cover more material than the regular courses. They are meant for students with excellent foundational skills who enjoy mathematics. A mark of 80% in the previous course is required to continue in the AP stream at each level. Students who remain in AP for the entire program may be eligible to receive university credit for Introductory Calculus.
It depends. For Math 10C, yes! A graphing caluator is required for all of the courses in the dash 1 and dash 2 streams. We recommend a TI – 84+. For Math 10-3, and the courses that follow, only a scientific calculator is needed.
Years of experience have shown us that students with marks between 50% and 65% in grade nine Math usually do not have the skills to experience success in Math 10C. It is very discouraging to begin high school with struggle and failure. It is much better to take Math 10-3, be successful and build your confidence and skills before taking Math 10C.
