Foundations and Pre-Calculus Math 10

Math 10 will introduce you to the abstract world of mathematics exploring new concepts like polynomials and linear functions while also having to reach deeper understanding of familiar topics like algebra and trigonometry. Martin aims to frame these topics in both a practical and intriguing way. Students of this course can expect a challenging course requiring a devotion to cementing new concepts that are learned but also in an environment where conceptual struggles are met with Martin’s commitment to help you understand and feel comfortable with Math!. Martin has an unabashed love for math, aiming to uncover the world of math as a helpful tool that helps us understand, analyze, and solve problems in both the abstract and real world.



Your Teacher – Martin Derige

Martin hails from the icy, sunshiny land of Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he obtained a degree in Biosystems Engineering at the University of Manitoba. He has worked with students of all ages, from playing dodge ball in school gyms to peer tutoring sleep-deprived engineers. He teaches math, science, and chemistry, and lives for that “Aha! Eureka!” moment when the kids just get it. Martin has a healthy sense of curiosity and compassion about the world and is always seeking to connect with the cool people who are part of it, like his family and friends – and the staff and students at Brain Boost! He exercises his brain with music, gaming, visual art, design, and puzzles of all types, and exercises his body through adventures like climbing, running in the woods, and day-long hikes in the mountains. He can often be found eating spaghetti.
