Engaging in de-tracking grade 11 mathematics was prompted by a concern that we had for some students who were not ready to make a decision about their future in mathematics at the end of grade 10. We decided to combine the first few units of grade 11 mathematics in order to provide students with a chance to experience mathematics at both the -1 and -2 levels before making a choice. The students were taught common content for the first three unit of grade 11 math and were given differentiated examinations that allowed students to demonstrate their understanding of the content either more focused on algebraic processes or more focused on graphical representations. We then offered students a suggestion and choice of what mathematics they would finish the year in. We have been doing this for the last 4 years and have seen a lot of success and struggled a lot of challenges and want to share our learning with teachers across Alberta.
