Locally developed courses (coded with the suffix L), 
                Intended for students whose post-secondary plans don't have specific math requirements.
               Useful as skill-booster courses for students who need to fill gaps in their math educational background.
MAT1L: locally developed math grade 9 
MAT2L: locally developed math grade 10
Locally developed for English Language Development Students (coded with prefix K)
             Preparation courses in math for students in the ELD and ELL programs (English Language Learners) 
             Course content includes essential numeracy acquisition skills to prepare students for success in for-credit math courses.
New for 2016/2017:  Grade 9 Academic Math and Technology For Careers in the 21st Century - Two Credit Course
This two-credit full-year course integrates the numerology and problem solving skills of the academic math curriculum with the design and project nature of the integrated technology curriculum.  The two courses are taught concurrently by the same teacher with students alternating between the classroom, computer lab and woodshop. High skilled career paths will be highlighted through active connections with Ottawa University, Carleton University and Algonquin College.  Students will acquire technological skills that are transferable to both a career path and the real world while the math curriculum will be made meaningful through connections to practical applications.  Equally as valuable, the math curriculum will be spread out over the entire year which has been proven to increase both the success and retention rate.


In grades 11 and 12, courses are offered in 4 streams as described below. Check the requirements for any post-secondary programs that you are interested in to be sure that you take the appropriate preparation course. You can speak to staff in Guidance (Student Services) for more help with this.
