COURSE CODE:

MFMP-10

FOUNDATION COURSE: MATHEMATICS 9 HONORS OR MATHEMATICS 9 with teacher recommendation

***Students interested in continuing in an honours program must fill in an application. When selecting courses, please select the non-honours version of the course. i.e Foundations of Mathematics and Pre-calculus 10. Successful applicants for the honours program will be scheduled appropriately by their counsellor.**

This is the second course of Riverside’s math honors 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. The option to purchase math workbook is available if students choose to write in it.

At the end of this course students are prepared for PRE-CALCULUS 11 HONOURS or PRE-CALCULUS 11** **
