THE ONTARIO CURRICULUM: Mathematics
UNIT ONEIntroduction to Functions
- In this unit, students will be introduced to functions. Students will analyze the existence of functions, be introduced to function notation and students will graph various types of functions.
UNIT TWOQuadratic Relations
- In this unit, students will be investigating ways to solve quadratic equations, determine the number of solutions to a quadratic equation, and identify information about a quadratic relation by studying their various forms.
UNIT THREESolving Quadratic Equations
- In this unit, students will develop the skills necessary to analyze quadratic functions and relate their findings to real-world contexts. Quadratics are powerful relationships that can be used to understand a variety of real-world phenomena.
- In this unit, students will be reintroduced to SOH CAH TOA, Sine law, and Cosine law and build on them. Students will explore angles and side lengths right angle properties as well as apply the sine and cosine law to solve various real-life applications.
UNIT FIVETrigonometric Functions
- In this unit, students will gain an understanding of trigonometric functions and how they can be used to model phenomenon such as the swinging of a pendulum.
UNIT SIXExponential Functions
- In this unit, students will build on the understanding of basic functions they developed in previous units, extending it to develop an understanding of the key characteristics of exponential functions.
UNIT SEVENFinancial Applications
- In this unit, students will connect and apply topics of study throughout the course to the concept of finance. The question every math teacher gets at least once per lesson is “when are we ever going to use this!?” The good news is this unit contains real-life applications of most concepts from this course! This unit will apply the knowledge students obtained from the following units: Algebraic Tools, Introduction to Functions and Exponential Functions.
FINAL EXAMProctored Exam
- This exam is the final evaluation of MCF3M 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.
