Mathematics at Work 11

Course Outline

Mathematics at Work 11 is a graduation level high school mathematics course. Students will explore the following topics:

  • Measurement
  • Geometry
  • Number
  • Algebra
  • Statistics

 

Measurement (M)

Students will be expected to develop spatial sense through direct and indirect measurement.

  • solve problems that involve SI and imperial units in surface area measurements and verify the solutions.
  • solve problems that involve SI and imperial units in volume and capacity measurements.

 

Geometry (G)

Students will be expected to develop spatial sense.

  • solve problems that involve two and three right triangles.
  • solve problems that involve scale.
  • model and draw 3-D objects and their views.
  • draw and describe exploded views, component parts, and scale diagrams of simple 3‑D objects.

 

Number (N)

Students will be expected to develop number sense and critical-thinking skills.

  • analyze puzzles and games that involve numerical reasoning, using problem-solving strategies. 
  • solve problems that involve personal budgets. 
  • demonstrate an understanding of compound interest.
  • demonstrate an understanding of financial institution services used to access and manage finances. 
  • demonstrate an understanding of credit options, including credit cards and loans. 

 

 Algebra (A)

Students will be expected to develop algebraic reasoning.

  • solve problems that require the manipulation and application of formulas related to:
    - volume and capacity,
    - surface area,
    - slope and rate of change,
    - simple interest,
    - finance charges.
  • demonstrate an understanding of slope
    - as rise over run,
    - as rate of change,
    - by solving problems.
  • solve problems by applying proportional reasoning and unit analysis.

 

Statistics (S)

Students will be expected to develop statistical reasoning.

  • solve problems that involve creating and interpreting graphs, including bar graphs, histograms, line graphs, and circle graphs.
