**Mathematics** is the no doubt the toughest subject for the greater percentage of students.

If your child is not good in math, then classroom teaching may not be the method by which

he/she can learn. In such cases, your child needs an experienced and qualified math tutor for

his math learning. It has also been proven that **one-to-one method** is the best way of

learning especially when it comes to mathematics. Personal attention makes all the difference

and enables your child to know his way of learning. Thus, hiring a math tutor for your child will

not only enhance his skills in mathematics but it will also make the subject interesting for your

child when the tutor teaches him/her in creative ways.

In **Ontario**, there are different courses designed for students with different needs and diffrente

career paths: Academic vs. Applied and University vs. College. Here are a few examples:

9 Principles of Mathematics Academic MPM1D

9 Foundationsof MathematicsApplied MFM1P

10 Principles of Mathematics Academic MPM2D

10 Foundations of MathematicsApplied MFM2P

11 Functions University MCR3U Principles of Mathematics,

11 Functions and Applications University/College MCF3M Principles of Mathematics

12 Advanced Functions University MHF4U Functions,

12 Calculus and Vectors University MCV4U

12 Mathematics of Data Management University MDM4U Function

In **Alberta**, they are separated into -1 and -2 Course Sequences:

**Math 10C** • involves topics such as measurement, powers, irrational numbers, functions and

relations, and trigonometry • focuses on algebraic skills and reasoning • provides several choices

after you successfully complete it and move to 20-level courses

**Math 20-1, 30-1** • investigate the relationships between relations and functions, and engage in

trigonometric topics • develop abstract reasoning and visualization in a problem-solving environment

• prepare you for a post-secondary program that requires calculus

**Math 20-2, 30-2** • focus on investigation into logical reasoning, relations and functions, and

trigonometry • develop problem-solving, reasoning, and various ways of communicating mathematical

understandings, including a research project • prepare for a post-secondary program that does not

require calculus

In the **Bristish Columbia** math curriculum, most of the students will use either the Foundations of

Mathematics or Pre-calculus pathway.

**Foundations of Mathematics**: This pathway is designed to provide students with the mathematical

understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for post-secondary studies in programs that do not

require the study of theoretical calculus. Topics include financial mathematics, geometry, measurement,

number, logical reasoning, relations and functions, statistics and probability.

**Pre-calculus**: This pathway is designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and

critical-thinking skills identified for entry into post-secondary programs that require the study of theoretical

calculus. Topics include algebra and number, measurement, relations and functions, trigonometry, and

permutations, combinations and binomial theorem.
