MATH PATHWAY

Graduation Pathways for Mathematics

Each pathway is designed to provide students with the mathematical competencies and critical thinking skills they will need after high school. Students should select courses in the pathway that best fits their interests and plans for after high school. Each pathway provides students with a different focus on math concepts and skills. Students may choose to take additional mathematics courses beyond the graduation requirements to better prepare them for what they want to do following high school.

Important Notes:

a)   Students entering grade 10 in September 2020 will be required to complete 18 credits for graduation, two of which must be math credits.

b)   In February 2021, Numbers, Relations, and Functions (NRF) 10 will be offered online for students and teachers who wish to use the resources and for those who decide to change their pathway.
