Principle courses are basically the first year courses you have to complete to be enroll in the program. The link above will tell you which courses you need to take during first year.

one line it says is "plus 0.5 additional principal course".

Which other courses satisfy that requirement?

It can be anything - they'll just look at your highest mark that isn't already a principle course.

So your principle courses are:

Calculus 1000
Calculus 1301 or 1501 (I'd take 1501 since actuarial science is math heavy)
Mathematics 1600
Economics 1021
Economics 1022
[Elective]

You'll need over 70% average in those course with none of those marks under 60% to be accepted into actuarial sciences for 2nd year. You also have to take 4 more classes since you have to complete 5.0 course credits.

so if one class goes from 10:30-11:30, we wouldn't be able to go to another class that starts at 11:30 right?

Yes you would. They end the classes approximately 10 minutes early.
