Foundations of Math and Pre-Calculus 10 is intended to help students continue on the path to potential STEM-based post secondary studies. Students in this course will experience an emphasis on increased algebraic foundations, problem solving and critical thinking skills.  Specifically, students will cover topics such as Polynomials, Functions, Relations, Systems of Equations, Trigonometry and Financial Literacy.

StudyForge Foundations of Math and Pre-Calculus 10 is intentionally designed for student success, featuring elements such as:

• Video, Audio and Hands-on instruction through videos and interactives
• Practice questions with detailed solutions for self-assessment
• A student notebook that accompanies the instruction, to enhance engagement with course material
• Summative assessments for each module – randomized to allow retests for mastery
• A customized dashboard to let you know which students are most needing your help
• A variety of Inquiry-based projects
• Solution Files & Answer Keys
• And more.

Foundations of Math and Pre-Calculus 10 requires that students have completed the prerequisite course: Math 9.

## See What Others Have to Say:

StudyForge has been an effective instructional program for students who are learning math. There are many visual representations as well as audio explanations on all the topics. Most of the practice questions provide both an answer and a solution to help students understand the procedures. From the teacher’s perspective, the course instruction can be easily rearranged for students who need a review of concepts from a previous grade.

## Online Teacher at EBUS Academy

I have been using the StudyForge math videos for a year now. The benefits were immediate as I was able to free up the time spent with my students to better track their progress and construct personalized learning goals. My students love the ease of use of the system and most of all, the increase in their test scores! I can’t ever imagine going back to a traditional classroom!

## Blended Teacher at Brampton Christian School

I think the videos are excellent. Unlike lectures, I can actually rewind back and forth as much as I want. In class, students kind of miss important information because they are busy writing notes.

## StudyForge Student

I love the reporting tool. In my distributed learning context, seeing student’s work habits in a helpful format has become invaluable to me. I wouldn’t ever want to give one on one help to students again without the course overview report handy!

## Course Features

• Interactive applets which help foster a conceptual and intuitive understanding of fundamental topics.
• Digital DESMOS Graphing Calculator within the course
• Inquiry-Based Projects such as:
• Comparing transportation costs of driving versus flying (it’s not always cheaper to drive!)
• Estimate the heights of architecture around us
• Exploring how Commission Pay works
