MAT1L: Mathematics- Grade 9, Locally Developed Compulsory Credit Course This course emphasizes further development of mathematical knowledge and skills to prepare students for success in their everyday lives, in the workplace, in the Grade 10 Locally Developed Compulsory Credit course and in the Mathematics Grade 11 and Grade 12 Workplace Preparation courses. The course is organized by three strands related to money sense, measurement, and proportional reasoning. In all strands, the focus in on developing and consolidating key foundational mathematical concepts and skills by solving authentic, everyday problems. Students have opportunities to further develop their mathematical literacy and problem-solving skills and to continue developing their skills in reading, writing, and oral language through relevant and practical math activities.

MAT2L:  Mathematics This course emphasizes the extension of mathematical knowledge and skills to prepare students for success in their everyday lives, in the workplace, and in the Mathematics Grade 11 and Grade 12 Workplace Preparation courses.  This course is organized by three strands related to money sense, measurement, and proportional reasoning.  In all strands, the focus is on strengthening and extending key foundational mathematical concepts and skills by solving authentic, everyday problems.  Students have opportunities to extend their mathematical literacy and problem-solving skills and to continue developing their skills in reading, writing and oral language through relevant and practical math activities.Prerequisite:  A grade 9 Mathematics credit

MFM2P:  Foundations of Mathematics – Grade 10, Applied This course enables students to consolidate their understanding of linear relations and extend their problem-solving and algebraic skills through investigation, the effective use of technology, and hands-on activities. Students will develop and graph equations in analytic geometry; solve and apply linear systems, using real-life examples; and explore and interpret graphs of quadratic relations. Students will investigate similar triangles, the trigonometry of right triangles, and the measurement of three-dimensional figures. Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as they solve problems and communicate their thinking. Prerequisite: Grade 9 Mathematics, Academic or Applied

Grade 11: MATHEMATICS FOR WORK AND EVERYDAY LIFE (MEL3E)

A. Earning and Purchasing

B. Saving, Investing, and Borrowing

C. Transportation and Travel

The Grade 11 workplace preparation course, Mathematics for Work and Everyday Life, is designed to help students consolidate the basic knowledge and skills of mathematics used in the workplace and in everyday life. This course is ideal for students who would like to take the Grade 12 workplace preparation course before graduating from high school and entering the workplace. The course also meets the needs of students who wish to fulfill the senior mathematics graduation requirement but do not plan to take any further courses in mathematics. All three strands, Earning and Purchasing; Saving, Investing, and Borrowing; and Transportation and Travel, provide students with the opportunity to use proportional reasoning to solve a variety of problems.

Grade 12: MATHEMATICS FOR WORK AND EVERYDAY LIFE (MEL4E)

A. Reasoning With Data

B. Personal Finance

C. Applications of Measurement

The Grade 12 workplace preparation course, Mathematics for Work and Everyday Life, extends the knowledge and skills developed in Grade 11. The gathering, interpretation, and display of one-variable data and the investigation of probability concepts are the main components of the Reasoning With Data strand. Topics in the Personal Finance strand address owning or renting accommodation, designing a budget, and filing an income tax return. A variety of problems involving metric and imperial measurement are presented in the Applications of Measurement strand. The expectations support the use of hands-on projects and other experiences that make the mathematics more meaningful for students.

MBF3C: Foundations for College Mathematics – Grade 11, College Preparation This course enables students to broaden their understanding of mathematics as a problem solving tool in the real world. Students will extend their understanding of quadratic relations; investigate situations involving exponential growth; solve problems involving compound interest; solve financial problems connected with vehicle ownership; develop their ability to reason by collecting, analysing, and evaluating data involving one variable; connect probability and statistics; and solve problems in geometry and trigonometry. Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as they solve problems and communicate their thinking. Prerequisite: Foundations of Mathematics, Grade 10, Applied

MAP4C:  Foundations for College Mathematics – Grade 11 College, Preparation This course enables students to broaden their understanding of real-world applications of mathematics. Students will analyse data using statistical methods; solve problems involving applications of geometry and trigonometry; solve financial problems connected with annuities, budgets, and renting or owning accommodation; simplify expressions; and solve equations. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems. This course prepares students for college programs in areas such as business, health sciences, and human services, and for certain skilled trades. Prerequisite: Foundations for College Mathematics, Grade 11, College Preparation, or Functions and Applications, Grade 11, University/College Preparation

MCF3M: Functions and Applications – Grade 11 College/University Preparation This course introduces basic features of the function by extending students’ experiences with quadratic relations. It focuses on quadratic, trigonometric, and exponential functions and their use in modelling real-world situations. Students will represent functions numerically, graphically, and algebraically; simplify expressions; solve equations; and solve problems relating to financial and trigonometric applications. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems. Prerequisite: MPM2D or MFM2P
