Math is one of the academic courses offered at Windermere. Students may choose from a wide selection of different math courses including Foundations math, Pre-calculus, Apprenticeship and Workplace math and Calculus.
All math courses have pre-requisites as the concepts are built on from previous math courses. When choosing math courses, please be sure to refer back to your university requirements. You do not need Math 12 to graduate from high school but most universities require a Math 12 course for admission. Students may opt to take double block Math in grade 10 and 11 if they feel they need more time. Permission from teacher is required.
The three streams of Mathematics
Foundations 11/12 for students not pursuing sciences
PreCalculus 11/12 for students wishing to enter the sciences
For students wanting to study finance, commerce, economics both Foundations and Pre-Calculus are recommended.
AW11 for students entering the trades (BCIT), or just wanting a graduation credit - upgrades may be done at college.
We offer Pre-calculus 12 and Calculus 12 concurrently and as a semestered course. Since these are two different courses, students will receive 8 credits for this course. Students who are in grade 12 may take Calculus 12, but this course requires previous knowledge of Math 12 in order to understand the concepts taught in Calculus. However, students may also choose to take both Math 12 and Calculus 12 at the same time, with the teacher’s permission. Should space be limited, preference will be given to students who have completed Pre-Calculus 12. Please see the student’s Math teacher for more information.
