**Grade 10 MaST Mathematics**

Grade 10 MaST Mathematics covers three strands:

**Quadratic Relations of the form***y*=*ax*^{2}*bx*+*c*

ü Investihating the Basic Properties of Quadratic Relations

ü Relating the Graph of and Its Transformations

ü Solving Quadratic Equations

ü Solving Problems Involving Quadratic Relations

**Analytic Geometry**

ü Using Linear Systems to Solve Problems

ü Solving Problems Involving Properties of Line Segments

ü Using Analytic Geometry to Verify Geometric Properties

**Trigonometry**

ü Investigating Similarity and Solving Problems Involving Similar Triangles

ü Solving Problems Involving the Trigonometry of Right Triangles

ü Solving Problems Involving the Trigonometry of Acute Triangles

- MaST Mathematics is an enriched experience. The course enables students to broaden their understanding of relationships and extend their problem-solving and algebraic skills througth investigation, the effective use of technololy, and abstract reasongning. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.

- Curriculum material is generally presented at a quicker pace, and with more depth.

- Students in the program have the opportunity to participate in the Waterloo Mathematics Contest – Cayley Contest.

- Interested students have a chance from time to time to participate in “Math Jeopardy” during lunch time. They are improving their mathematics skills and have fun at the same time.
