MBF3C Foundations for College Mathematics – Grade 11 (College)
PREREQUISITE: Foundations of Mathematics, Grade 10, Applied
GRADE: 11 (College)
AVAILABILITY: Blyth Academy Online
THE ONTARIO CURRICULUM: Mathematics
MBF3C online 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, analyzing, 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.
- In this unit, students will explore relationships between angles and side lengths in both right and non-right triangles. Students will explore the origin of the sine and cosine laws and apply their understanding of right and non-right-angle trigonometry to solve real-world problems.
- In this unit, students will develop and build on their understanding of mathematical tools that can be used to investigate quadratic relationships. Students will continue to explore factoring strategies and the vertex and standard forms of the quadratic and apply these understandings to solve problems involving real-world scenarios.
- In this unit, students will review the basic exponent laws needed to study exponential relationships. Students will make comparisons between linear, quadratic, and exponential relationships, and solve real-world problems involving exponential growth and decay.
UNIT FOURPersonal Finance
- In this unit, students will apply their understanding of course concepts to make connections between finance and exponential growth. Students will also question when it is best to rent or lease and explore the implications of borrowing money.
- In this unit, students will investigate properties of shapes that affect how objects function. Students will investigate how three-dimensional objects can be represented using two-dimensional models and apply their understanding to design scenarios.
UNIT SIXProbability & Statistics
- In this unit, students will develop an understanding of statistical tools that can be used to understand the world around them – from their everyday decisions to the messages they see in the media. Students will also learn about the difference between experimental and theoretical probability and explore applications of this concept.
- This project is one of the final evaluations of MBF3C online. This project will challenge students to think critically about the concepts learned in this course. It is worth 10% of the final grade.
FINAL EXAMProctored Exam
- This exam is the final evaluation of MBF3C online. Students need to arrange their final exam 10 days in advance. All coursework should be completed and submitted before writing the final exam, please be advised that once the exam is written, any outstanding coursework will be given a grade of zero. The exam will be two hours. There are two options for taking the exam:
- WRITE EXAM AT BLYTH ACADEMY CAMPUS: If you live close to a Blyth Academy Campus, or if you attend a Blyth Academy Campus, you can take your exam there.
