MPM2D Course Overview
MPM2D online enables students to broaden their understanding of relationships and extend their problem-solving and algebraic skills through investigation, the effective use of technology, and abstract reasoning. Students will explore quadratic relations and their applications; solve and apply linear systems; verify properties of geometric figures using analytic geometry, and investigate the trigonometry of right and acute triangles. In MPM2D online, students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems. Whether taken as an online course or in-person on one of the Blyth campuses, this course will prepare students for future coursework in mathematics with a focus on real-world usage. Both online and in-person options for this class follow the same curriculum and answer the same six essential questions on topics ranging from linear systems, geometry, trigonometry, quadratic expressions, and quadratic equations.
MPM2D Course Outline
You will find a course outline below created by Blyth Academy for Principles of Mathematics – Grade 10. Whether taken online or in-person on one of the Blyth campuses, the course outline remains the same. The course, using code MPM2D, is divided into six units: linear systems, analytic geometry, similar triangles and trigonometry, quadratic expressions, quadratic equations part 1, and quadratic equations part 2. The six units cover key topics in mathematics with a focus on their real-world applications.
Take the time to read over the details of the six units in this math class and learn more about how the answer to each unit’s essential question provides a foundation for using math in real-world applications and continued study in mathematics.
UNIT ONELinear Systems
- In this unit, students will investigate how to determine the point of intersection of two lines algebraically and graphically. students will apply their knowledge to examine real-world scenarios that can be modelled using a linear system of equations and interpret the meaning of a point of intersection through the lens of the real-world application.
UNIT TWOAnalytic Geometry
- In this unit, students will investigate a series of tools that are useful in geometric problem-solving scenarios. Students will apply their understanding of analytic geometry tools to classify quadrilaterals based on their determined properties. Students will also combine their understanding of analytic geometry tools with their understanding of linear relations to solve complex geometry problems.
UNIT THREESimilar Triangles and Trigonometry
- In this unit, students will learn to analyze and classify triangles as similar or congruent. Students will also investigate the relationship between sides and angles in both right and non-right triangles. Students will apply their understanding of trigonometric ratios to determine unknown sides and angles, as well as solve problems that are encountered in the real-world.
Unit FourQuadratic Expressions
- In this unit, students will develop strategies for representing trinomial expressions in different forms. Students will learn to select the appropriate strategy for any given problem. These skills are important and considered foundational for the remainder of this course and future mathematics studies.
UNIT FIVEQuadratic Equations (Part I)
- In this unit, students will investigate the properties of the vertex form of a quadratic relation and apply these properties to graph quadratic relations. Students will also develop the skills necessary for converting standard form to vertex form. Students will apply these skills to solve real-world problems involving maximums and minimums of quadratic models.
UNIT SIXQuadratic Equations (Part II)
- In this unit, students will develop an understanding of how factoring can be used to determine the x-intercepts of a quadratic relation. Students will investigate how the quadratic formula can be used to determine the x-intercepts when factoring is not possible. Students will make connections between the x-intercepts of a quadratic and real-world context, while also applying their new skills to solve real-world problems involving maximums and minimums of quadratic models.
- This project is one of the final evaluations of MPM2D online. The culminating activity will make up 10% of the final mark. It is designed so that students can work on it throughout the course.
- This exam is the final evaluation of MPM2D 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 1.5 hours.
- Please consult our Frequently Asked Questions Page or the Exam section within your course for details on exam proctoring options.
- The grading rubric is also the same for online and in-person instruction for this course. It breaks down coursework, culminating project, and final exam, showing how each is weighted to determine final grades.
- Grades for this course will be available to students about four days after the exam is written. However, depending on how much work is submitted by the student near the end of the course, that timing may vary. Before students take the final exam all coursework is due. Students who are prompt in course completion will ensure prompt grade receipt.
- The culminating project, which can be worked on at any time during the course, will be 10% of the final grade; the final exam will be 20% of the final grade. Please take the time to review the details of the culminating project and when to schedule the final exam, which requires 1.5 hours.
- The student and the student’s home school will both receive report cards. Students will receive their grades via email for their convenience.
- After the instructor has submitted the final grade, the report cards are processed and generated within two business days. Report cards are mailed to the student’s home school through Canada Post. It may take two weeks to receive the report card. A digital copy of the report card will be sent to the student via email.
- Blyth Academy has 11 locations across Ontario along with an online option. You can learn more by scheduling an informational session. Blyth Academy offers in-person and online courses that are smaller in size with engaging instructors focused on individualized learning for grades four through 12.
