The Math Question
35
Implications of Math
  • Three Pathways
  • Apprenticeship and Workplace Mathematics
    designed to provide students with the
    mathematical understandings and critical-thinking
    skills identified for entry into the majority of
    trades and for direct entry into the work force.
    NO UNIVERSITY WILL TAKE THIS MATH FOR ENTRANCE
    but many trades , certificate or diploma programs
    in career oriented programs will! DO YOUR
    RESEARCH
  • Foundations of Mathematics (11 note 12 level not
    offered next year) designed to provide
    students with the mathematical understandings and
    critical-thinking skills identified for
    post-secondary studies in programs that do not
    require the study of theoretical calculus. Some
    universities will accept Foundations in arts
    programs etc. (i.e. SFU) students must
    CAREFULLY review individual university admissions
    requirements/program specific requirements to
    ensure there chosen math will meet admission to
    their program of choice
  • Pre-calculus - designed to provide students with
    the mathematical understandings and
    critical-thinking skills identified for entry
    into post-secondary programs that require the
    study of theoretical calculus. NEEDED FOR ALL
    UNIVERSITY SCIENCE PROGRAMS please note Math
    11 requirements may have a minimum score ie. SFU
    requires 60 some PROGRAMS may require higher
    minimum scores in math 11 and 12 again
    students must consult Post Sec. admissions
    requirements to ensure they are aware of math
    requirements for their chosen field of study.

    Science has been passed at the gr. 11 level)
