course outline

We worked on defining a classroom culture that is healthy, productive, and engaging. Striving for that culture will be a goal for our class each day for the rest of the year.

 

Chapter 1 – Slope and Rate of Change

“Slope occurs naturally in the world as well as in structures made by people. It affects the way we live, work, and play. In this chapter, you will learn how to use slope calculations to meet a need and to understand a relationship between two measurable quantities. You will use some familiar mathematics concepts, such as ratio, rate, trigonometry, and graphing, in a new context.” (MathWorks 11, page 10)

By the end of this chapter, you will be able to…

  • 1A – manipulate the slope formula to calculate rise, run, and slope for a line or a physical object
  • 1B – express slope as a ratio, angle, or percent grade
  • 1C – explain, using examples the connection between slope and rates of change
  • 1D – create and interpret line graphs and calculate rates of change

 

Chapter 2 – Graphical Representations

“In this chapter, you will explore different types of graphs, and discover how they are used in the workplace and in daily life. Graphs can be used to display data, and it is important to consider which type of graph best displays your message.” (MathWorks 11, page 54)

By the end of this chapter, you will be able to…

  • 2A – create the following types of graphs without technology: bar graphs, histograms, line graphs, and circle graphs
  • 2B – create the following types of graphs with technology: bar graphs, line graphs, and circle graphs
  • 2C – determine the types of graphs that should be used to display data, and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each
  • 2D – explain, using examples how different graphic representations of the same data set can be used to emphasize a point of view
  • 2E – interpolate and extrapolate values from a graph

 

Chapter 3 – Surface Area, Volume, and Capacity

“Many of the objects that you see every day are common three-dimensional objects. The soccer ball you played with is a sphere, the ice cream cone you ate is a cone, and the cereal box that holds your breakfast is a rectangular prism. When your soccer ball was created, someone measured how much leather would be needed to cover the ball. When your cereal box was designed, someone measured the space inside to determine how much cereal it could hold.” (MathWorks 11, page 114)

By the end of this chapter, you will be able to…

  • 3A – use and manipulate a formula to find the surface area of a 3-dimensional object
  • 3B – determine the surface area of a composite shape, using a net, or other technique
  • 3C – use and manipulate a formula to find the volume or capacity of a 3-dimensional object
  • 3D – determine the volume or capacity of a composite shape
  • 3E – solve problems that involve SI or imperial units in surface area, volume, or capacity measurements

 

Chapter 4 – Trigonometry of Right Angles

“Trigonometry – the mathematics of right triangles – has been used as a practical mathematical tool for thousands of years. Today, surveyors, carpenters, road builders, and metal fabricators are just some of the trades people who use trigonometry in their work.” (MathWorks 11, page 164)

By the end of this chapter, you will be able to…

  • 4A – use the sine, cosine, and tangent ratios to solve problems with one right-angled triangle
  • 4B – solve problems involving two right-angled triangles
  • 4C – solve problems involving right-angled triangles in three dimensions
  • 4D – solve problems involving angle of depression and angle of elevation

 

Chapter 5 – Scale Representations

“Have you ever read a map, sewed an article of clothing, built a model, or assembled a piece of furniture? Then you have likely used a scale represenation of a real object. In many workplaces, scale drawings or models are used to guide installation or assembly. Plumbers and carpenters, for example, often use drawings in their work. Builders and movie set crews are guided by models.

Who makes these drawings or models? They are created by people working in a variety of fields, including fashion, graphic, and interior design, surveying, and drafting, to name a few.” (MathWorks 11, page 208)

By the end of this chapter, you will be able to…

  • 5A – determine the scale of a drawing or model, written in lowest terms, without decimals
  • 5B – determine the dimensions of an object using a scale drawing or model
  • 5C – model and draw objects from top, front, and side views
  • 5D – draw objects using isometric dot paper
  • 5E – draw objects using one-point perspective
  • 5F – draw or describe objects exploded views or component parts of simple 3D objects

 

 

Chapter 6 – Financial Services

“There are probably things that you dream about buying one day. Maybe you want to save money for post-secondary education, buy a car or truck, or spend some money on entertainment clothes, or a new computer.

Whatever your goals are, whether they are big or small, it is important to understand how different services available from financial institutions can help you manage your money.” (MathWorks 11, page 252)

By the end of this chapter, you will be able to…

  • 6A –
  • 6B –
  • 6C –
  • 6D –

 

Chapter 7 – Personal Budgets

“In this chapter, you will learn the basics of budgeting and discover that budgets are a way to reach your personal goals.

Have you ever wanted to purchase something but found the item was too expensive? Perhaps you were looking at a new mountain bike or an MP3 player, but it cost more than you could afford. Maybe there is a computer graphics course you would like to take, but you don’t have the money saved for it.

A budget is your spending plan. Preparing and following a budget will allow you to live within your means, avoid the stress of debts, and give you the freedom to make choices with the money you have. Most importantly, a budget will all you to plan how to achieve your goals.” (MathWorks 11, page 300)

By the end of this chapter, you will be able to…

  • 7A –
  • 7B –
