Formula for Success
The enthusiastic and dedicated math teachers at W. P. Wagner are committed to helping students achieve personal success in mathematics. We offer programming at a variety of levels to ensure that students are challenged, supported, and on track to reach their future goals, whether they be in mathematics related university programs or in ensuring they have satisfied the requirements for a high school diploma. Students at W. P. Wagner appreciate how our teachers really go the extra mile to ensure that each student achieves success in mathematics. This extra effort shows in our outstanding achievement results.
Prerequisites: 80% in Math 9. Students are recommended to achieve a minimum mark of 80% to proceed to the next level.
This sequence is intended for those who excel in mathematics. An accelerated pace allows the courses in this sequence to extend, enrich, and supplement the outcomes covered in the Mathematics 10 Combined.
Mathematics 10C (combined course)
Prerequisites: 60% in Math 9. Students will need to achieve a minimum of 60% to proceed to the next level.
A combined course is the starting point for the "-1" course sequence and the "-2" course sequence. Each "-1" topic area requires that students develop a conceptual knowledge base and skill set that will be useful for whatever course sequence are meant to build upon previous knowledge and to progress from simple to more complex conceptual understandings.
Getting Ready for Math 10C
This course sequence is 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. Topics include algebra, geometry, measurement, number, statistics, and probability.
(5 credits each)
Prerequisite: A mark of 60%in the previous course is highly recommended.
This is a rigourous course sequence designed to provide students with the mathematical understanding and critical thinking skills required for entry into university, college, technical school or other post-secondary programs that require the study of calculus such as engineering, science, business and many technology fields. A graphing calculator is required for this course.
(5 credits each )
Prerequisite: 55% in previous course.
This course is designed to provide students with the mathematical understanding and critical thinking skills required for university, college, technical school, or other post-secondary programs that do not require the study of calculus such as humanities, social sciences, and fine arts. A graphing calculator is required for this course.
Post-Secondary Schools in Alberta current programs of study acceptance of Math 30-1 and Math 30-2.
(5 credits each)
Prerequisite: 50% in previous course.
This course sequence is designed to provide students with the mathematical understanding and critical thinking skills identified for entry into many of the trades and direct entry into the work force.
Pre-requisite or co-requisite: Mathematics 30-1
Mathematics 31 is an introductory course in calculus. It covers the calculus of polynomial functions, trigonometric functions and logarithmic functions. It is a requirement for students considering engineering or mathematics programs at the university level as well as some mathematics-intensive programs in technical schools.
