Foundations and Pre-Calculus Mathematics 10


Angela Kleine-Buning


Math 9 with a minimum mark of C+


This newly developed Foundations of Mathematics and Pre-Calculus 10 course fully meets the learning outcomes for the new BC Curriculum. It is the pre-requisite for Pre-Calculus 11 and Foundations of Mathematics 11.

This engaging and easy to navigate course was designed to help students reach their full potential in secondary math. Each lesson contains carefully selected practice problems and extra resources.

Online lessons are video-based, and students have complete control over the pace at which they learn—lessons can be paused, resumed and repeated using simple navigation buttons. Examples are interactive with animated step-by-step flash and video whiteboard solutions. Extra resources, including alternate lessons and examples, have been carefully selected to assist students who need additional instruction.

Foundations of Mathematics and Pre-Calculus 10 is organized into the following units:

  • Unit 1: Exponents
  • Unit 2: Polynomials
  • Unit 3: Factoring
  • Unit 4: Relations and Functions
  • Unit 5: Linear Relations
  • Unit 6: Linear Systems
  • Unit 7: Trigonometry
  • Unit 8: Mathematical Models

Students will be assessed with assignments, unit tests and a final exam. These are all submitted online. Some of the assessments are supervised using an online supervision software called Integrity Advocate which runs from directly within the online course, so students are not required to download any third-party software to their computers. Integrity Advocate supervised tests require a computer with a webcam and microphone. 

Face-to-face or Zoom conversations will be part of the expectations for this course. This will start with the first interview but please understand that you will be asked to meet several times while you are in the course. This could be to clarify a solution on a test, get some support for your learning or present part of a project.






Student-paced – Students are asked to complete a schedule for themselves using the built in scheduler as one of the first activities in the course. This will give students the big picture of their commitment and progress towards completion.


BC Performance Standards


Students are assessed through assignments, projects, and tests. With their submissions, students will be given specific feedback on their strengths and how to improve in the course.

The lessons are designed to be completed independently, however we recognize that there will be times when students struggle with certain concepts, so teachers are available to help students by telephone, e-mail, or online virtual classes.


Students need access to a computer with reliable internet access, a webcam and microphone, a printer to print notes and assignments, a scanner (or mobile phone scanning app such as Genius Scan) to scan student work that will be submitted online, a scientific calculator, and a ruler. Some assignments will also require access to a digital camera, like a phone camera, for taking photos and recording videos.

All assignments must be submitted electronically.
