Information for students and families 

Q. How many courses can I take?

A. Students can enroll in a maximum of two courses. 

Q. What’s the workload like? 

A. Each course is a complete 90h course, so you can expect to be putting in a substantial amount of time each day. While you can work at your own pace, it is reasonable to expect that you will need to work 4-5 hours each day for a single course. 

Q. Where/how will the course be offered? Who is teaching them? 

A. Courses will be offered through D2L Brightspace, the same platform as regular distance learning courses. Courses will be taught by online teachers from NB schools. 

Q. Do I have to have been enrolled in the course previously? 

A. No, but it will certainly help. You do need to have the prerequisites to be enrolled. 

Q. I’m in grade 11 now, can I take one of these courses? 

A. Unfortunately no, the focus is on those heading to post-secondary in the fall. 

Q. Do I need to be available each day? When do I need to be online? 

A. You need to demonstrate evidence of working each day, but there is some flexibility about when you do your work. Teachers will mostly be available in the morning (9-12). 

Q. How is my mark recorded? What if I don’t pass? 

A. Your existing transcript will be updated to indicate your mark. Where the primary intent of offering these courses is post-secondary readiness, unsuccessful attempts won’t be recorded on your transcript. 

Q. What do I need for equipment and internet? 

A. You will need a computer to complete the course (PC or Mac). Where all content is online, internet access is required. For software, you need an up to date browser (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Safari).​

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.
