Students in Mathematics 12 will explore the following topics:

#### Financial Mathematics (FM):

Students will be expected to develop number sense in financial applications.

• Solve problems that involve compound interest in financial decision making.
• Analyze costs and benefits of renting, leasing and buying.
• Analyze an investment portfolio in terms of interest rate, rate of return, and total return.

#### Logical Reasoning (LR):

Students will be expected to develop logical reasoning.

• Analyze puzzles and games that involve numerical and logical reasoning, using problem-solving strategies.
• Solve problems that involve the application of set theory

#### Probability (P):

Students will be expected to develop critical-thinking skills related to uncertainty.

• Interpret and assess the validity of odds and probability statements.
• Solve problems that involve the probability of mutually exclusive and non-mutually exclusive events.
• Solve problems that involve the probability of two dependent events.
