Brebeuf College Mathematics: Program & Pathways Considerations:
 
Choosing the appropriate level of study is extremely important, especially in mathematics.  The following are guidelines a parent should consider in mathematics course selection at Brebeuf College. For more information please consult with your son’s mathematics teacher or the Brebeuf College Guidance Department.
 
  • Academic/University Level of Study: Students should achieve a minimum of 60% in an academic/university course to consider continuing study at this level. Anyone with lower achievement should serious consider changing to the applied/college level of study.
  • Applied/College Level of Study: Students should achieve a minimum of 60% in an applied/college course to consider continuing study at this level. Anyone with lower achievement should serious consider changing to the essentials/workplace level of study.
  • Transition from Grade 10 to Grade 11: There are five mathematics courses available in the Grade 11.  Here are some recommendations to consider:
 
    • From Grade 10 Academic to Grade 11:
Mark in Grade 10 Academic
Course in Grade 11
85% or above
Grade 11 Enriched MCR 3UE
70% and above
Grade 11 University MCR 3U
60% - 70%
Grade 11 University/College MCF 3M
Below 60%
Grade 11 College MBF 3C
 
    • From Grade 10 Applied to Grade 11:
Mark in Grade 10 Applied
Course in Grade 11
70% and above
Grade 11 University/College MCF 3M*
60%  and above
Grade 11 College MBF 3C
Below 60%
Grade 11 Workplace MEL3E
                    * Consultation with teacher and guidance counsellor required.
 
·         Transition from Grade 10 to Grade 11: There are six mathematics courses available in the Grade 12, three are university level, two college and one workplace.  Here are some recommendations to consider:
o   From Grade 11 University to Grade 12:
Grade 12 Course

Enriched Mathematics Program: A special program in mathematics that goes above and beyond the core Ontario mathematics curriculum is our Enriched Mathematics Program. This option not only provides students with challenging problems and in-depth learning experiences, but it also fosters a deeper understanding and appreciation for mathematics through the various learning experiences that are provided.
 
The Brebeuf Enriched Math Program is open to students of any grade. At this time we have one Grade 9 Enriched Math class, two Grade 10 Enriched Math classes, a Grade 11 Enriched Functions course a Grade 12 Enriched Advanced Functions course for the Grade 11 students, and a Grade 12 Enriched Calculus course. The key differences between the courses in the enriched program and the core academic/university courses is that the enriched math courses reinforce the lessons with additional problems and more challenging experiences, and the provide students with the opportunity to learn new and more advanced concepts and skills that will help them in later mathematics courses. Students in the Enriched program take part in activities such as The Waterloo Math Contests and also work towards completion of the Calculus AP exams. Successful completion of AP exams earns students advanced placement and/or credit in university.
 
Any student who is interested in the pace and challenge of the enriched program and is also achieving a mark of 85% or higher in the core academic mathematics courses is encouraged to register for the enriched mathematics classes. If interested in enrolling your son in this enriched mathematics program, please contact Mr. Brad Ryan, the Department Head of Mathematics, by calling the school at 416-393-5508, or by e-mailing   brad.ryan@tcdsb.org .
