NO TEXTBOOK REQUIRED. This is a self-paced course delivered via animated video series. This course is a part of the pathway designed to provide students with the mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills identified for entry into post-secondary studies in programs that do not require the study of theoretical calculus. Topics covered include: Measurement – proportional reasoning (rates, scale diagrams, scale factors); Geometry – properties of angles and triangles (proofs and problems), sine law and cosine law; Logical Reasoning – inductive and deductive reasoning, spatial reasoning puzzles and games; Statistics – normal distribution (standard deviation, z-scores), confidence intervals, confidence levels and margin of error; relations and functions, systems of linear inequalities in two variables, characteristics of quadratic functions.
Foundations of Math 12 centers around the big ideas of probabilistic thinking, data modelling, financial decisions, and geometric explorations.
The course instruction is offered through StudyForge lesson videos, note packages, and practice questions.
The topics include geometry, graphical representations, regression analysis, combinatorics, probability, and financial planning.
This course is suited for students looking for post-secondary studies in arts and other faculties.
The French 10 class is currently offered on a project base system. There are 12 units covering many aspects of the French language and culture.

Following completion of grade 10 French, the French 11 class is currently offered on a project base system. There are 12 units covering many aspects of the French language and culture. The work includes watching clips, listening to audio files, producing audio files, reading and writing.
French 11 is a prerequisite for entrance into certain B.C. Universities and colleges. This course is meant to improve the French skills already acquired in French 10.
In French 12 students are expected to engage in increasingly complex oral and written communication, expanding from previously acquired knowledge of French. There are 12 units covering many aspects of the French language and culture, including poetry and art. The work includes watching clips, listening to audio files, producing audio files, reading and writing.
Combine your passion with your talent to earn up to four-course credits in Independent Directed Studies!
You can work with the IDS teacher to build your course, based on training that you wish to take locally, and at least one learning outcome from a Ministry-approved course. Example: create an outdoor education focus by combining other courses such as Wilderness First Aid, Swift Water Rescue, and C. O. R. E. hunter training to focus on the Outdoor Living 12 learning standard of demonstrating responsibility for personal safety and the safety of others.
Or you can pursue your learning (by working with your online teacher/mentor) to develop a project that meets at least one learning outcome from a senior Ministry-approved course. Examples: write and direct your play, design and conduct your science experiments, design and build a useful invention, or even create a documentary.
Your project topic, subject to teacher approval, must meet the required 120 hours to fulfill the requirements of the course. Students may begin an IDS course at any point in the year.
Note: Independent Directed Studies 10, 11, 12 do not apply toward Adult Dogwood Graduation Credits
In this course, students gain the skills and knowledge to help develop their guitar “toolbox.” This is the ultimate beginners’ course covering everything from how to play, guitar maintenance, a history of the instrument and the nuances of music theory.
The focus of the course is to ensure students new to the guitar discover the joys of playing music.
