MATH 10C

Summary of Course Content and Activities

We encounter math in some form every day.  To make wise choices, we need to be knowledgeable about mathematics and the processes involved.

In Math 10C, we look at 3 general outcomes:

• develop spatial sense and proportional reasoning. In this outcome, we study topics like surface area, volume and trigonometry.
• develop algebraic reasoning and number sense. In this outcome, we study topics like factors of whole numbers, irrational numbers, powers with rational exponents, multiplying polynomials and factoring trinomials.
• develop algebraic and graphical reasoning through the study of relations. In this outcome, we study topics like interpreting graphs, understanding relations and functions, slope, linear relations and systems of equations.

Activities in this course include a weekly assignment, quizzes, practice activities, a cumulative review and a final exam.

Prerequisites

Students who have successfully completed Math 9 with a mark of 50% or better can take this course.

Math 10E (Essentials)

Competencies in Math 10E is underdevelopment and will be ready for Fall 2024.

Summary The Competencies in Math 10E course is a preparation course for Math 10C and aims to build confidence in students by reinforcing and developing skills in number sense(multiples, factors, integers, fractions), exponents, graphing, solving equations, polynomials and problem solving.  Improving student mastery of these essential mathematical skills provides them with a strong foundation for future mathematics courses.

Math 10 Essentials is intended for students who plan to take Mathematics 10C and who have been challenged by Algebra and Problem Solving in Mathematics 9.  Math 10 Essentials is also intended for students transitioning to an aligned, teacher-directed, online mathematics program.  The prep course will help bridge any gaps between previous math classes and Math 10C.

Philosophy statement for teaching this course

Students will develop an understanding of the concepts of this course through gentle repetition and practice with the big ideas. Graphing calculators are an integral part of the course, and many topics will be illustrated using technology in different forms. Since this is a"pure" math course, much emphasis is placed on theory and symbolic manipulation, though applications and"real life problems" are part of the course as well. Many of the problems that make up the course are multi-step and will require the student to make connections and pull ideas together to solve these tasks. Students must be able to follow through using both their knowledge of the question at hand as well as all the algebraic manipulation skills required to arrive at a solution.

Prerequisites

A strong background in Math 10C (65% recommended) or equivalent will be needed for a student to be successful in Math 20-1.
