Mathematics 30-1 LINKS:

Here are some links to online diploma review information to help you prepare for your regular unit tests and final diploma exam in Math 30-1. For diploma review info, the Alberta Education bulletins (Standards and Exemplars) are the best to look at for examples of Diploma-type questions.

For additional practice questions, try Quest A+ and ExamBank links. Quest A+ does not require a password. ExamBank does. Search the web if your school does not have its own password (ask your teacher if they have one). Read the info paragraphs first, so you can decide what you wish to review.

  1. Alberta Education:
    1. Math 30-1 Standards and Exemplars: This is the Alberta Education document that teachers use to determine the depth of the topics to teach and the types of question that will be on the diploma exam. The Standards and Exemplars document has some very good questions and examples to look at when studying for a test or doing review. Remember, this is what your teacher is looking at to see what kind of questions to ask and teach. Sometimes they take questions right from this book without even changing the numbers. It is very useful as a practice set of questions for unit test and diploma review.
    2. Recently Released Pure Math 30 Questions: These are the most recent released questions from the Pure Math 30 diploma exams. Keep in mind that 50% of the current Math 30-1 is the same as Pure Math 30. Look at Transformations, Trigonometry, Perms & Combs, and Exponents and Logarithms. It is good to review these before the diploma or unit exams. Teachers often use these as models for test questions and even use the exact same question unchanged.
    3. Math 30-1 Information Bulletins: Subject bulletins are mainly for teachers and deals with the make-up of the Diploma Exam, how to complete the different types of Numerical Responses and other information relevant to teachers.

  3. QUEST A+: Quest A+ is an online source for practice tests/quizzes/exams for a variety of subjects. It is provided free to Alberta students. Its questions are taken from Exambank.com

First 5 topics on trig, Exponential Functions, Translations and Stretching help you to understand the effects of the a,b,c and d values. Worth a look. Fun to play with the sliders.
