Math

Middle School

CHHS has adopted a Middle School Philosophy in recent years with respect to its grade 7 and 8 students. In an effort to reduce the number of teachers our Middle School students see on a daily basis, courses like Math and Science have been podded together—meaning students have one teacher that teaches them both Math and Science.

The Mathematics Curriculum

The Grades 10-12 Mathematics Program of Studies includes a combined Grade 10 course, Mathematics 10C, that is the starting point for the -1 and -2 course sequences. This will allow Mathematics 10C students to delay choosing a mathematics course sequence until Grade 11.  Upon successful completion of 10C students will choose a path of 20-1 or 20-2 depending on their post secondary aspirations.  The other Grade 10 mathematics course available is Mathematics 10-3 (Apprenticeship & Workplace) for students planning to enter a trade or the workforce.  Students who have successfully completed Math 10-3 may move on to Math 20-3 or to Math 10C.
