### Course Outline

Mathematics at Work 12 is a graduation level high school mathematics course. Students will explore the following topics:

- Measurement
- Geometry
- Number
- Algebra
- Statistics
- Probability

#### Measurement (M):

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

- Demonstrate an understanding of the limitations of measuring instruments, including precision, accuracy, uncertainty, and tolerance, and to solve problems.

#### Geometry (G):

Students will be expected to develop spatial sense.

- Solve problems by using the sine law and cosine law, excluding the ambiguous case.
- Solve problems that involve triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons.
- Demonstrate an understanding of transformations on a 2-D shape or a 3-D object, including translations, rotations, reflections, and dilations.

#### Number (N):

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

- Analyze puzzles and games that involve logical reasoning, using problem-solving strategies.
- Solve problems that involve the acquisition of a vehicle by buying, leasing, and leasing to buy.
- Critique the viability of small business options by considering expenses, sales, and profit or loss.
- Identify expenses in operating a small business.

#### Algebra (A):

Students will be expected to develop algebraic reasoning.

- Demonstrate an understanding of linear relations by:

- recognizing patterns and trends,

- graphing,

- creating tables of values,

- writing equations,

- interpolating and extrapolating,

- solving problems.

#### Statistics (S):

Students will be expected to develop statistical reasoning.

- Solve problems that involve measures of central tendency, including mean, median, mode, weighted mean, and trimmed mean.
- Analyze and describe percentiles

#### Probability (P):

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

- analyze and interpret problems that involve probability.
