FAQ

I am registered at another high school. Will I get credit for Renert School’s Math courses?

Yes. Alberta students may take courses from any accredited high school in Alberta. Renert School will report your marks to Alberta Education at the end of the course and they will be recorded on your transcript.

I just finished Grade 9. Can I take math this semester?

Yes. If you are very strong in Math and are confident that you learned all of Math 9 well, you may register in Math 10C too.

Can you provide a brief description of each of the three courses offered?

Math 10C

Mathematics 10C is the introductory course for high school mathematics. Topics include measurement, trigonometry, polynomial factoring, exponents, and relations and functions. This course prepares students to enter the dash-1 and dash-2 sequences of high school mathematics.  At Renert we offer the 10C program with the high standards required to find success.  We will teach the course with the emphasis on elements that will give students a strong foundation needed for the Math 20-1 program.

Math 20-1

The goal of the course is to provide prerequisite attitudes, knowledge, skills and understandings for success in Math 30-1, calculus, and beyond.  The course will provide students with mathematical understandings and critical-thinking skills.  We focus on developing a conceptual and procedural understanding of mathematics.  The Math 20-1 route is designed to prepare students for post-secondary programs that require advanced math skills or calculus.  Topics include sequences and series, trigonometry, quadratics, rational expressions, radical expressions, absolute value and reciprocal functions, systems of equations, and inequalities.

Math 31

The goal of the course is to provide a solid foundation in Calculus for future studies at university. First-year calculus is a prerequisite course in many university programs. Mastering ideas of calculus at high school provides students with a tremendous boost when they take calculus at university. Topics include: limits, derivatives, optimization, related rates, curve sketching, integrals.

Can I take a credit course in order to improve my mark on a course that I’ve already taken?

Yes. You may use Renert School’s Math courses to upgrade marks that you got before.

How will my mark be determined?

Your mark in the course will be based on assignments and tests. The tests are taken on Zoom and include a combination of multiple choice and written response questions.

Are these Courses a way for me to get easy marks without doing any work?

No. These are excellent math courses whose aim is to make you understand math very well. They take work.

How can I get help as I work through questions?

We have ongoing Zoom support sessions where you get help from your teacher with your questions. We also offer test reviews prior to each test where you can get any of your questions answered. You may also ask questions on your class discussion board and your teacher is always available for email questions too.

Our Zoom classes are recorded so if you are struggling with a particular concept you have the ability to watch the lesson again and make note of your questions. You can then get clarification from your instructor in one of the support sessions.

Students looking for extra support multiple times per week are encouraged to register in our Online High School Math Homework Help sessions which are additional online sessions with experienced high school teachers who can help you with your homework as you proceed through the course. Students registering in a Credit Course receive a discount when they add the Homework help sessions.

What if I find out that the course is not for me?

You may drop the course after the first test and your fees will be refunded less a $25 administration fee.

What happens if I don’t like the mark that I get in the course?

You may continue to work on the course materials, with support, until the end of the semester. If you don’t like your mark by then, you may retake the course at no charge in the future to upgrade your mark.

What is the difference between Auditing and taking the course for Credit?

For Credit: Students who are not registered in a math course (during the semester of interest) and wish to complete a math course outside of their home school may register with us and, once the course is completed, Renert School will award an official credit to the student for the completion of the course. Grades will be uploaded to the Alberta Education My Pass system and appear on the student’s transcript. The school listed for the course will be Renert School.

Auditing: Students who either wish to preview the course material through our classes or are currently enrolled in their high school math course at school but are looking for additional instruction and support may register in our credit course as an Audit student. Official grades will not be awarded from Renert School for audit students. Registrations received after 4 weeks of instruction in each semester will automatically be considered audit students and official credits will not be awarded. We encourage all audit students to also consider registering in our Online Math homework help sessions where they will have access to additional sessions where our instructors can assist with their homework from their school course.

If you have any questions about this, please contact our office at: 403-923-9036 or tutoring@renert.com.

Do you offer any discounts?

Yes, when you bundle a Credit Course registration with our Online Math Homework Help Sessions, you will receive 40% off the pro-rated fee for the OMHH sessions. The discount will be applied in your cart. (Note, both must be purchased at the same time).
