Students are strongly encouraged by the Ministry and GSCS to take both of the Grade 10 math courses: Foundations and Pre-Calculus 10 & Workplace and Apprenticeship 10.
· Students will benefit as there is rigorous math learning in both courses. This will allow students to develop a deep foundational understanding of mathematics.
· Students should be exposed to the mathematics in all three of the pathways before deciding on a pathway.
· It delays the decision regarding which pathway to take until Grade 11.
· It keeps the students' options open for all three pathways.
The Ministry has posted responses to "frequently asked questions" about Secondary Mathematics curriculum renewal on their website. The FAQ document is online (see related documents) at: http://www.education.gov.sk.ca/math
