Mathematics

If you are interested in brushing up on some of your math skills or plan on applying to a college or university  program that has math as a prerequisite, or if you just enjoy math and problem solving, choose a math course at SCAS. In our math courses you will learn math skills and problem-solving techniques which you can use in your job as well as your everyday life.

The Mathematics courses are based on the Ontario Ministry of Education Mathematics curriculum, Grades 9 to 12. 

For all Mathematics courses, a scientific calculator is required. The courses include the effective use of technology.


ESSENTIAL MATHEMATICS (MAT1L)

1 Credit / 2 Hrs Daily

MAT1L is a refresher course for students wishing to improve their basic mathematical skills. Topics include whole numbers, decimals, fractions, ratios, percent, measurement and statistics. The focus is on developing and consolidating key foundational mathematical concepts and skills by solving authentic, everyday problems.
Recommended Prerequisites: Math Assessment and ESLDO


GRADE 9 APPLIED MATHEMATICS (MFM1P)

1 Credit / 2 Hrs Daily

In MFM1P students consolidate core skills and deepen their understanding of key mathematical concepts. Students develop mathematical skills in algebra, graphing and geometry through problem solving and applications.
Recommended Prerequisites: MAT1L or Math Assessment and ESLDO

GRADE 10 APPLIED MATHEMATICS (MFM2P)


1 Credit / 2 Hrs Daily
In MFM2P students further develop key mathematical skills as well as study new topics such as trigonometry and quadratics. Students use their skills to investigate applications and solve problems. A scientific calculator is required.
Recommended Prerequisites: MFM1P or Math Assessment and ESLDO


GRADE 10 PRINCIPLES OF MATHEMATICS, ACADEMIC (MPM2D)

1 Credit / 2 Hrs Daily

This course enables students to broaden their understanding of relationships and extend their problem-solving and algebraic skills through investigation, the effective use of technology, and abstract reasoning. Students will explore quadratic relations and their applications; solve and apply linear systems; verify properties of geometric figures using analytic geometry; and investigate the trigonometry of right and acute triangles. This course will be offered in September – November only.
Recommended Prerequisites: Over 75% in MFM2P


GRADE 11 FOUNDATIONS FOR COLLEGE MATHEMATICS (MBF3C)

1 Credit / 2 Hrs Daily

In MBF3C students extend their understanding of mathematics as a problem-solving tool in the real world as they study topics such as trigonometry, quadratics, exponential growth, compound interest and statistics.
Recommended Prerequisites: MFM2P or Math Assessment and ESLDO


GRADE 11 FUNCTIONS - UNIVERSITY PREPARATION (MCR3U)

1 Credit / 2 Hrs Daily

The course introduces the mathematical concept of the function by extending students’ experiences with linear and quadratic relations. Students will investigate properties of discrete and continuous functions, including trigonometric and exponential functions; represent functions numerically, algebraically, and graphically; solve problems involving applications of functions; investigate inverse functions; and develop facility in determining equivalent algebraic expressions. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems. This course will be offered in November – January only.
Recommended Prerequisites: MPM2D


GRADE 12 FOUNDATIONS FOR COLLEGE MATHEMATICS (MAP4C)

1 Credit / 2 Hrs Daily

In MAP4C students broaden their understanding of real-world applications of mathematics as they study topics such as trigonometry, graphical analysis, finance, geometry and statistics. MAP4C is a prerequisite for college programs in health sciences, business and human services. Some skilled trades also require MAP4C.
Recommended Prerequisites: MBF3C or Math Assessment

ADVANCED FUNCTIONS (MHF4U)


1 Credit/ 2 Hrs Daily

This course extends students experience with functions.  Students will investigate the properties of polynomial, rations, logarithmic and trigometric functions; broaden their understanding of rates of change and develop facility in applying these concepts and skills.  Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics.  This course is intended both for students who plan to study mathematics in university and for those wishing to consolidate their understanding of mathematics before proceeding to any one of a variety of university programs.
