Grade 11 Math represents an important stepping stone in progressing to the 12th grade. Students at this stage are often at a crossroads, namely whether to take the Mixed level math course or the Academic level math course. My advice to students would be to stick with the Grade 11 Academic Math, even if it requires a bit more work or a summer math upgrade. This course will open many doors to university programs ranging from engineering to business and many others. Unless a student is absolutely certain of the path they wish to take, it is probably better to stick with the more flexible math option.
There are many challenging units in grade 11 Math including exponents, transformation, trigonometry graphing, and trigonometry identities (the first time you will encounter proofs). The simpler units include Quadratics, which is mostly a review of grade 10 material, and series and sequences.
The major concern for math is that it is cumulative. Each math grade level is a building block to the next, and without a strong knowledge of previous math concepts, students will struggle. For example, math tests often check for understanding of previous math concepts in most steps of the questions asked.
At QEA, we focus on building the student’s math foundations for their long term success. Since QEA is an inspected school under the Ministry of Education, we have in-depth knowledge of the math curriculum and how each math building block leads to the next. Through easy-to-understand lessons and step-by-step explanations, most of our students progress well in math and develop a passion for it.
