Ess – Mathematics, Essential MAT1LI

This course emphasizes further development of mathematical knowledge and skills to prepare students for success in their everyday lives, in the workplace, in the Grade 10 LDCC course, and in the Mathematics Grade 11 and Grade 12 Workplace Preparation courses. The course is organized by three strands related to money sense, measurement, and proportional reasoning. In all strands, the focus is on developing and consolidating key foundational mathematical concepts and skills by solving authentic, everyday problems. Students have opportunities to further develop their mathematical literacy and problem-solving skills and to continue developing their skills in reading, writing, and oral language through relevant and practical math activities.

Ap – Foundations of Mathematics, Applied MFM1PI

This course enables students to develop understanding of mathematical concepts related to introductory algebra, proportional reasoning, and measurement and geometry through investigation, the effective use of technology, and hands-on activities. Students will investigate real-life examples to develop various representations of linear relationships, and will determine the connections between the representations. They will also explore certain relationships that emerge from the measurement of three-dimensional objects and two-dimensional shapes. Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as they solve problems and communicate their thinking. Successful completion of this course prepares students for Foundations of Mathematics, Grade 10, Applied (MFM2P). (Note: Students who wish to take Principles of Mathematics, Grade 10, Academic [MPM2D] after completing this course will need to take a transfer course.)Learning through hands-on activities and the use of concrete examples is an important aspect of this course.

They will also explore relationships that emerge from the measurement of three-dimensional objects and two-dimensional shapes. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multistep problems. Successful completion of this course prepares students for Principles of Mathematics, Grade 10, Academic (MPM2D) or Foundations of Mathematics, Grade 10, Applied (MFM2P).

Pre AP – Principles of Mathematics, Academic MPM1DP

MPM1DP is a self-selected Pre-AP (Calculus) math program. It is part of a 4 year Pre-AP pathway. Students who have a keen interest in mathematics will be challenged by a more in-depth look into the grade 9 Academic curriculum. Students can also expect to see some content from the grade 10 Academic curriculum introduced during the semester. This is accomplished by moving more quickly through the regular curriculum; so students in this designation must be capable of grasping mathematical concepts relatively quickly. Please note; our model of Pre-AP does NOT evaluate/test these “reach ahead” concepts. Testing in this course is identical to the regular Academic program.
Students can still enter the Pre-AP pathways from other years of high school, regardless of their selection of MPM1D-P.
