Mathematics - At least one of the following:
1. Essential Math 20S/E/M 
Essential Mathematics (20S) is intended for students whose post-secondary planning does not include a focus on mathematics and science-related fields. Grade 10 Essential Mathematics is a one-credit course emphasizing consumer applications, problem solving, decision making, and spatial sense. The Essential math stream will prepare students for every day, on-the-job problem solving. Students may take Math Essentials as their single math stream, or in addition to other math courses (Applied, Pre-Calculus). This pathway is designed to provide students with the mathematical understanding and critical thinking skills identified for entry into the majority of trades and for direct entry into the work force.

2. Introduction to Applied and Pre-Calculus Math 20S/E/M
Introduction to Applied and Pre-Calculus Mathematics 20S is intended for students considering post-secondary studies that require a math prerequisite. This pathway provides students with the mathematical understanding and critical-thinking skills that have been identified for specific post-secondary programs of study. The topics studied form the foundation for topics to be studied in both Grade 11 Applied Mathematics and Grade 11 Pre-Calculus Mathematics. Components of the curriculum are both context-driven and algebraic in nature. The learning outcomes are divided into three topics: Measurement; Algebra and Number; and Relations and Functions.

Science 20F/E/M
