Recommended Prerequisite: Proficient or Extending in Math 9.

FPC Mathematics 10 is an academic pathway for students wishing to move on to Foundations 11 and/or Pre-Calculus 11. These mathematics courses are prerequisites for students intending to pursue academic programs at the college or university level. Students are expected to complete between 20 to 40 minutes of math homework each school night, although some students who have struggled with math historically, may require more time. The pace of this 5-month course can be difficult to manage, for students with lower marks coming from Mathematics 9. It is highly recommended that a Learning Strategies block and/or a tutor be utilized, should students need additional time to complete the practice work. Students can also consider taking LINEAR FPC Math 10. This allows students to have two semesters to learn.
