Mathematics

The minimum requirements for a student to attain an Alberta high school diploma include Mathematics 20 level 
(20-1, 20-2 or 20-3).

 

Always check information with the post-secondary institution and the program of your choice. Pre-requisites vary by institution and institutions sometimes change entrance requirements.

The Advanced Placement (AP) stream is designed for students who have a passion for math and wish to pursue mathematics at a level beyond high school. Math 31 AP students write the AP Calculus AB exam and Math 35AP students write the AP Calculus BC exam in May.

Calculators

Students in our "-3" sequence will use a basic scientific calculator. Students in all other Math courses require a graphing calculator as per Alberta Education.
