COURSE CODE:
MFMP-10H

This is the second course of Riverside’s math honours program, which provides an opportunity for like-minded students to develop a community of peers and together nurture their passion, creativity, enthusiasm, and confidence in mathematics. This course can be entered from Math 9 Honours or if space is available from Math 9 with a teacher recommendation.  The Foundations of Mathematics and Pre-Calculus 10 curricular content will be covered in depth with basic concepts covered at an accelerated rate to allow more time for analyzing, evaluating, and applying knowledge. Learning activities will be structured to provide enrichment beyond the grade 10 curriculum with a focus on enhancing problem-solving and fostering higher levels of thinking. Enrichment may also be driven by the interests and passions of the students. Students are expected to be self-motivated and enthusiastic about enhancing their creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills as well as having a solid work ethic and an aptitude for math. Students should enjoy challenges and be comfortable with risk-taking. Students are expected to participate in math contests. The core and curricular competencies will be addressed throughout the course. Assessment is aligned with the BC Ministry of Education Grade 10 Foundations and Pre-Calculus curricular outcomes and extensions. Students are expected to maintain a high standard of academic achievement. Pre-Requisite: Math 9 Honours or Teacher recommendation.

MATHEMATICS 9 SUPPORT

MATHEMATICS 9 SUPPORT
COURSE CODE: XSPBK09

Taken concurrently with Math 9, this course is intended for students who have been assigned to grade 9, but were not successful in or only marginally passed Mathematics 8. Students also choose this course to maintain higher grades. The intent of the course is to provide extra support so that students can be successful in the regular Math 9 program. The course will be offered in block X on alternate days with an 8 am start time. The course will include pre-teaching of concepts, re-teaching of concepts and using alternate strategies to reinforce concepts. Time will also be devoted to improving organizational skills and homework assistance.
