Mathematics

W.J.Mouat's Math Department strives to be a premier Mathematics Department in Abbotsford as well as in British Columbia and we are incredibly proud of our results and participation rates.

The department provides a caring and nurturing learning environment that embraces and promotes a commitment to hard work and continued study.

Our goal is to prepare our students to realize their potential and help them excel in higher education.

We offer the full range of B.C. Ministry of Education courses as well as a math honours stream for students that want more enrichment.

Apprenticeship & Workplace Mathematics 9 (AWM9) 
Prerequisite: Any Math 8
Scientific calculators are required. There will be heavy review of previous material. This will allow students to cover the required material at a pace which allows for better comprehension, necessary for success in subsequent years.

Apprenticeship & Workplace Mathematics 10 (AWM10)
Prerequisite: A MA9 course
There is a provincial exam at the end of this course that is worth 20% of the final mark. This pathway is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for entry into the majority of trades and for direct entry into the work force. Topics include algebra, geometry, measurement, trigonometry and finances.

Apprenticeship and Workplace Mathematics 11 (AWM11)
Prerequisite: A MA10 course.
This pathway is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for entry into the majority of trades and for direct entry into the work force. Topics include Measurement, Geometry, Finances, Algebra and Statistics. It is each student's responsibility to investigate the requirements of any post-secondary program they may wish to pursue prior to selecting their pathway.

Foundations of Mathematics 9 (FMP9)
Prerequisite: Recommended MA8 with 65% minimum
An honours option is available for those students who qualify. Scientific calculators are required. The course includes Transformations, Data Analysis, Geometry, Algebra, Measurement and Number Operations. Students will need a solid background from Math 8 and good work habits.

Foundations of Mathematics 9 Honours (FMP9H)
Prerequisite: MA8 and teacher's recommendation
This is an enrichment program, not acceleration. Scientific calculators are required. The course includes Transformations, Data Analysis, Geometry, Algebra, Measurement, Number Operations, and some topics outside of the regular curriculum. Students will be required to maintain high grades as well as enroll in a national math contest. 

Foundations of Mathematics & Pre-Calculus 10 (FMP10)
Prerequisite: MA9 with 65% minimum
There is a provincial exam at the end of this course that is worth 20% of the final mark. This pathway is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for post-secondary studies. Topics include algebra, measurement, relations, functions and trigonometry.

Foundations of Mathematics & Pre-Calculus 10 Honours (FMP10H) 
Prerequisite: FMP9H and teacher’s recommendation
There is a provincial exam at the end of this course that is worth 20% of the final mark. This is an enrichment program, not acceleration. While completing topics outside the normal curriculum, students will be required to maintain high grades as well as enroll in a national math contest.

Foundations of Mathematics 11 (FOM11)
Prerequisite: FMP10
This pathway is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for post-secondary studies in programs that do not require the study of theoretical calculus. Topics include Measurement, Geometry, Trigonometry, Logic, Statistics, Quadratics, Systems, and Research. It is recommended that students purchase a graphing calculator. Graphing calculators will be provided to students but for in-class use only. It is each student's responsibility to investigate the requirements of any post-secondary program they may wish to pursue prior to selecting their pathway.

Foundations of Math 12 (FOM 12)
Prerequisite: C+ in FOM11.
This is an academic course. Topics covered in this course: Finance, Logic, Probability, Relations and Functions.Note: Requires a Graphing Calculator. Recommended calculator is the TI83 +. You will need your own calculator for in-class work and homework.

Pre-Calculus 11 (PREC11)
Prerequisite: FMP 10 with 65% minimum
This pathway is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for post-secondary studies that require the study of theoretical calculus. Topics include Absolute value, Radical and Rational functions, Trigonometry, Quadratic Functions, Systems, Reciprocals, Sequences and Series. It is recommended that students purchase a graphing calculator. Graphing calculators will be provided to students but for in-class use only. It is each student's responsibility to investigate the requirements of any post-secondary program they may wish to pursue prior to selecting their pathway.

Pre-Calculus 11 Honours  (PREC11H)
Prerequisite: FMP10H and/or teacher’s recommendation
This is an enrichment program, not acceleration. While completing topics outside the normal curriculum, students will be required to maintain high grades as well as enroll in a national math contest.

Pre-Calculus Math 12 (PREC 12)
Prerequisite: PREC 11 with 70%
This is an academic course. Designed for students who have a particular interest in mathematics, or who have career aspirations in the fields of engineering, mathematics, the sciences, economics, and some business programs. The main purpose is to develop the skills needed to
continue on with the study of calculus. This course relies heavily on topics covered in previous grades. It is strongly suggested that students with less than 60-65% in Pre-Calculus Math 11 discuss their course selection carefully with their teacher. Topics include graphing transformations, polynomial, rational and radical functions, logarithms, trigonometry and combinatorics. Student success is often a combination of good prerequisite skills along with good attendance and strong work habits.

Calculus 12 (CALC 12)
Prerequisites: PREC11 with 80% and enrolled in PREC12
Intended to meet two objectives. To provide students with: 1) skills in calculus while they are still in high school, 2) a better preparation for calculus in college and university Content will include units on differentiation and integration and applications of each. Students who plan on registering in a university or college math course are strongly recommended to take this course.
