DO I HAVE TO TAKE MATH?
  • In your grade 10 year, take a serious look at university and college prerequisites
  • If they require or recommend math or science, take the prerequisite in grade 11 so that you can take it in grade 12
  • If math is not required for your program of choice, and you suck at math, don’t take it!
  • The only way you can make this decision wisely is if you do your research
  • You don’t want to skip math and then have to come back for grade 13 because you found out too late that you needed it
