Grade 10

Introduction to Applied and Pre-Calculus Mathematics‚Äč

Grade 10 Introduction to Applied and Pre-Calculus Mathematics 20S is intended for students considering post-secondary studies that require a math prerequisite. This pathway provides students with the mathematical understanding and critical-thinking skills that have been identified for specific post-secondary programs of study. The topics studied form the foundation for topics to be studied in both Grade 11 Applied Mathematics and Grade 11 Pre-Calculus Mathematics. Components of the curriculum are both context-driven and algebraic in nature. The learning outcomes are divided into three topics: Measurement; Algebra and Number; and Relations and Functions.

Essential Mathematics 20S

Essential Mathematics (20S) is intended for students whose post-secondary planning does not include a focus on mathematics and science-related fields. Grade 10 Essential Mathematics is a one-credit course emphasizing consumer applications, problem solving, decision making, and spatial sense. The Essential math stream will prepare students for every day, on-the-job problem solving. Students may take Math Essentials as their single math stream, or in addition to other math courses (Applied, Pre-Calculus). This pathway is designed to provide students with the mathematical understanding and critical thinking skills identified for entry into the majority of trades and for direct entry into the work force.

Visual Arts

Visual Arts education develops important disciplinary and cross-curricular competencies for learning and living well together in an interconnected world.  Research indicates that well-designed visual arts education contributes to learning engagement, self-efficacy, and a wide range of positive academic, social, and emotional effects. Visual Arts education offers learners a diverse, unique, and powerful ways of perceiving and making meaning about the world through practices that include drawing, illustration, work on paper, painting, media arts, textile art .  These practices offer multiple ways for learners to engage with, connect with, and respond to their world through various approaches and in diverse visual arts education contexts.  Visual Arts education is not just about learning the language and practices of the visual arts, “it is about addressing who we are as people, embracing differences, encountering numerous cultures, interacting and collaborating with others, and inviting response”. 

Food and Nutrition

The food and nutrition area of study provides students with opportunities to explore their relationships with food in both a theoretical and practical way that can enhance one’s health and well-being. It also provides knowledge and skills that have immediate relevance to students’ lives, as well as lifelong applications personally, within families, in their communities, and on a global scale. The goal of this area of study is to shape students to become informed consumers and responsible citizens.

Grade 10 Food and Nutrition focuses on the individual within the family unit and the influence that marketing and media have on family food choices. Students will gain a strong understanding of the categories of nutrients, why our bodies need them, and what foods are consumed for health and well bing. The course provides opportunities for students to further develop food preparation skills in a practical setting.
