## 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.
