  • Here is a proposal to address the need for a coherent revision of the mathematics curriculum grades k-14. Not another five years. It appeared as an editorial in the December Ontario Mathematics Gazette.
  • A two page summary of this, created by Wayne Erdman of the TDSB can be downloaded here as well.
  • Senate Approved revised York Admissions Requirements of Mathematics courses for September 2008.
  • New One Paragraph descriptions of the revised Grade 12 Courses, with new course codes.
  • New Pathways including the revised Grade 12 Courses, with the new course codes.
  • Short Summary of the new Vectors and Calculus course to be implemented in Grade 12 September 2007.
  • Short Summary of the new Advanced Functions course to be implemented in Grade 12 September 2007.
  • Short Summary of the revised Data Management course, to be implemented in Grade 12 September 2007.
  • Recommendations for MATH Admissions This is a modified report from the discussions over the summer. It focuses on requirements for Mathematics Programs, but includes discussion of other programs at York, and suggested prerequisites. It is based on provincial discussions and discussions within the York Department of Mathematics (Arts and Science), as well as the current prerequisites and admissions requirements at York.
  • Math Department Recommendations on Admissions This is a report from the July 31, 2006 meeting of the Admissions Committee in Science,annotated for people outside of the Mathematics Department. It is based on provincial discussions and discussions within the York Department of Mathematics (Arts and Science), as well as the current prerequisites and admissions requirements at York.
  • Summary of high school pathways This is a short summary of the Old (2000) pathway currently used for our admissions, the proposed pathway debated last October, and the new pathway to be implemented in September 2007 (Grade 12) and for September 2008 admissions and courses.
  • Summary of content for new 'second course' This is my cut-and-paste DRAFT of the new 'second' Grade 12 U course which includes both Calculus (differential techniques) and Vectors, each adapted from parts of previous Grade 12 course content.

Together these documents outline the ministry decision to continue with Advanced Functions as proposed last October (see the next link) and to create a new course Calculus and Vectors to replace the older Geometry and Discrete Math and the proposed Geometry and Algebra, maintaining some calculus content as a Grade 12 U course with Advanced Functions as a prerequisite (or co-requisite in non-semestered schools).
