Way back when, the following high school courses were offered (excluding AP, IB, etc.):
Math 10, 20, 30, 31
Math 13, 23, 33
Math 14, 24
Around 1999, the new curriculum started being implemented, Math 10, 20, 30 were replaced with Pure Math 10, 20, 30 and Math 13, 23, 33 were replaced with Applied Math 10, 20, 30. Math 14, 24 and 31 remained:
Pure Math 10, 20, 30, Math 31
Applied Math 10, 20, 30
Math 14, 24
Around 2008, this curriculum was again updated to the current structure: Pure Math 10 and Applied Math 10 were replaced with Math 10C, Pure Math 20 and 30 were replaced with Math 201 and 301, and Applied Math 20 and 30 were replaced with Math 202 and 302. Math 14 and 24 were replaced with Math 104 and 204. Math 31 remains:
Math 10C, 201, 301, 31
Math 10C, 202, 302
Math 104, 204
The new curriculum is designed to allow students to be more flexible about which stream they are doing. You can do 301 after 302 without needing to take earlier courses like you did if you had Applied 30 and needed to do Pure 10 followed by Pure 20, followed by Pure 30.
Note that any time one of these curriculum changes happened, it is of course done over the course of 3 years each time, with one level changing over each year.
Whether or not Applied Math 30 and Pure Math 30 were "referred to" as 302 and 301 internally as course codes prior to the actual course name change is irrelevant, as the courses were never actually called that, and there was a noticeable content/curriculum change when it happened.
I graduated in 2004, and none of this affects me at all. Why am I even posting here... haha.

Yea sick 5 year bump to drop some knowledge.
This sounds way better than it used to be (ie: being about to do 301 after 302.
I had a couple friends that screwed around and later smartened up and had a hell of a time getting into the pure stream. Glad to see things seem to have changed a bit.
