  3. Mathematics Pre IB 10 • Designed to prepare students for demands of IB Math Program • Academically driven students with strong work ethic. • Proven success in previous math courses • Extremely demanding / academically challenging environment

  4. Mathematics 10 – Academic • Academic 10 Mathematics program • Pre-requisite: successful completion of Grade 9 Math with “Good to Excellent” performance. (above 65%) • Highly motivated students who: - are independent workers (nightly homework) - can quickly learn new math concepts -easily understands abstract concepts & algebraic procedural skills (high competency) - are highly organized and have proven success in previous math courses • Extremely demanding / academically challenging environment

  5. Mathematics Foundations 10 • Students who have experienced difficulty in mathematics but have passed grade 9 Math (between 50-65%) • Gaps in math background affecting performance • Uncertain of their mathematical capabilities • May pursue careers outside of science/math - many post-secondary opportunities open to this math route – all secondary programs without math pr-requisites • Meets criteria for 1st of two math credits required for graduation

  8. Find the missing side. Triangle Problem 2

  9. Two ladders lean against a tree. A ten metre has its foot 6 metres from the tree’s base and a 5 metre ladder has its foot 3 metres from the tree’s base. What is the distance between the tops of the ladders? Triangle Problem 3

  10. Find length AD. Triangle Problem 4
