Grade 9

MAT 1LI

This course is intended for students who are working below Grade 8 level in Mathematics. This course uses real-life situations such as money and measurement to increase the understanding and relevancy of Mathematics to the students.

MFM 1PI

Students will gain a better understanding of Number Sense, Proportional Reasoning, Measurement and Geometry in addition to exploring Relationships. This course is STRONGLY recommended for those students who are working at a Level 1 or 2 in Grade 8 Mathematics.

MPM 1DI

MPM1DI lays the foundation for future success in an Academic program. In this course, students extend their Algebraic & Geometric Skills, explore Relationships
and develop Equations of Straight Lines. This course is STRONGLY recommended for those students who are working at a Level 3 or 4 in Grade 8 Mathematics.

MPM 1DW

This course is intended for students who are destined for the I.B. programme. In MPM1DW, students extend their Algebraic and Geometric skills, explore relationships, and solve problems relating to linear relationships and systems of linear equations. This course is only recommended to those students who have been accepted into the ISP programme at GPSS.

Grade 10
MAT 2LI

Students will continue to study Mathematics using real-life contexts with an emphasis on topics that relate to the Fast Forward programs offered in the school

MFM 2PI

This course continues to develop and extend topics studied in the grade 9 courses. New topics include Systems of Linear Equations, Trigonometry and Quadratic Functions.

MPM 2DI

This course lays the foundation for success in Mathematics courses in grades 11 and 12. The course focuses on Quadratic Relationships, Analytic Geometry and Trigonometry. A minimum mark of 65% in MPM1DI is suggested to ensure success.

MPM 2DW

This course is intended for students who are destined for the I.B. programme. MPM2DW focuses on Quadratic Relationships, Analytic Geometry, Trigonometry, and introduces Exponential relationships. This course is only recommended to those students who have been accepted into the ISP programme at GPSS. Prerequisite MPM1DW (with exceptions).

Grade 11
MBF 3CI

The focus of this course is investigating the use of mathematics to solve problems in the real world. Students will apply mathematics to solve problems involving quadratic relations, measurement and geometry, compound interest, financial decisions and data analysis. A minimum mark of 65% in MFM2PI is suggested to ensure success.

MCF 3MI

Students will continue to enhance their algebraic skills and study functions useful in modeling real-life situations including financial applications. A minimum mark of 60% in MPM 2DI or 80% in MFM2PI is suggested to ensure success.

MCR 3UI

The pace and workload of this course is preparation for all University level courses
at the grade 12 level. In addition to continued study of trigonometry and simplifying polynomial and rational expressions, the main focus of the course is function analysis. A minimum mark of 75% in MPM 2DI is suggested to ensure success.

MCR 3UW

This course is intended for students who are destined for the I.B. programme. MCR3UW focuses on functions analysis, including Quadratic/Polynomial, Trigonometric, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions. This course is only recommended to those students who have been accepted into the I.B. programme at GPSS.

MEL 3EB

This course is intended for students in the Fast Forward program. The course will focus on relevant money management topics such as earning money, paying taxes, saving, investing and borrowing. Some topics will be specifically related to Fast Forward sectors.

MEL 3EI

This course is intended for students who have previously taken Applied level math courses. The focus of this course is on the Mathematics of day-to-day living. Students will solve problems involving money management including earning money, paying taxes, saving, investing and borrowing and the costs associated with transportation and travel.

Grade 12
MAP 4CI

This course provides preparation for many college programs including Business, Health Sciences and Human Services. Students solve problems involving home ownership, trigonometry, geometry and measurement to solve real-world applications and use statistical methods to analyse problems. A minimum mark of 60% in MBF 3CI is suggested to ensure success.

MCT 4CI

This course is recommended by various college technological programs and serves as an excellent preparation course for MHF4UI. The course focus is developing facility with algebraic skills, as well as function and graphical analysis. In addition, students will solve problems that apply algebra, trigonometry and vectors. This course is STRONGLY recommended for students intending to take MHF4UI who have attained a credit in MCR3UI with a mark below 65%.

MCV 4UI

This University level course is intended for students pursuing post-secondary programs in Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics or Engineering. The course provides an introduction to Calculus concepts and geometric/algebraic representations of vectors, lines and planes in three-dimensional space.

MDM 4UI

This University level course is ideal for students entering Business, Social Sciences or any field that requires statistical analysis. Topics of study include: organizing data, counting techniques, probability and statistics. The focus of this course is a culminating research project undertaken by the student on a topic of his/her choice. A minimum mark of 65% in the prerequisite courses is suggested to ensure success.

MEL 4EI

This course enables students to broaden their understanding of Mathematics as it is applied to day-to-day living. Students will investigate problems in probability and statistics, household budgets, proportional reasoning, measurement and geometry.

MHF 4UI

A minimum mark of 70% in MCR3UI is suggested to ensure success. For marks below this, it is STRONGLY recommended that a student take MCT 4CI prior to this course. This course continues the study and application of a variety of functions, and develops the concepts and skills necessary for the study of mathematics in post- secondary programs.

MHF 4UW

This course is the second of two courses for students in the I.B. programme. MCV4UW students will focus on Calculus and Vectors, while also providing an appropriate amount of time for students to complete an exploration on a topic of their choosing to fulfill the IA component of the I.B. programme. This course in only recommended for students who are in the I.B. programme.
