Topics covered in Math 10 are: powers and exponents, prime factorization, functions and relations, linear functions, arithmetic sequences, systems of linear equations, polynomials, factoring, trigonometry, and financial literacy.
Your Educator – 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.
