Math

Our Mathematics program engages all students in mathematics and equips them to thrive in a society where mathematics is increasingly relevant in almost all workplaces.

At Scarlett we understand that:
• Learning mathematics involves the meaningful acquisition of concepts, skills, and processes and the active involvement of students in building new knowledge from prior knowledge and experience.
• Learning tools such as manipulatives and technologies are important supports for teaching and learning mathematics.
• Effective teaching of mathematics requires that the teacher understand the mathematical concepts, procedures, and processes that students need to learn, and use a variety of instructional strategies to support meaningful learning.
• Assessment and evaluation must support learning, recognizing that students learn and demonstrate learning in various ways.

The prevalence in today’s society and classrooms of sophisticated yet easy-to-use calculators and computer software accounts in part for the inclusion of certain concepts and skills in this curriculum. The curriculum has been designed to integrate appropriate technologies into the learning and doing of mathematics, while equipping students with the manipulation skills necessary to understand other aspects of the mathematics that they are learning, to solve meaningful problems, and to continue to learn mathematics with success in the future. Technology is not used to replace skill acquisition; rather, it is treated as a learning tool that helps students explore concepts. Technology is required when its use represents either the only way or the most effective way to achieve an expectation.

Four types of courses are offered in the senior mathematics program: university preparation, university/college preparation, college preparation, and workplace preparation. Students
choose course types on the basis of their interests, achievement, and post secondary goals.

The course types are defined as follows:
University preparation courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to meet the entrance requirements for university programs.

University/college preparation courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to meet the entrance requirements for specific programs offered at
universities and colleges.

College preparation courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to meet the requirements for entrance to most college programs or for admission to specific apprenticeship or other training programs.

Workplace preparation courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to meet the expectations of employers, if they plan to enter the workplace directly after graduation, or the requirements for admission to many apprenticeship or other training programs.
