This is an ONLINE course, complete with online quizzes and tests (at teachers descretion) , dropbox submissions, discussions, links to online resources and animations, online grades and communication with your instructor via pager, email and telephone. The online course is the recommended format.   

Learning Outcome A1 

Demonstrate an understanding of powers with integral bases (excluding base 0) and whole number exponents by:

Representing repeated multiplication using powers
Using patterns to show that a power with an exponent of zero is equal to one
Solving problems involving powers

Learning Outcome A2 

Demonstrate an understanding of operations on powers with integral bases (excluding base 0) and whole number exponents

Learning Outcome A3 
Demonstrate an understanding of rational numbers by:

  • comparing and ordering rational numbers
  • solving problems that involve arithmetic operations on rational numbers

Learning Outcome A4 

Explain and apply the order of operations, including exponents, with and without technology

Learning Outcome A5

Determine the square root of positive rational numbers that are perfect squares

Learning Outcome A6 

Determine an approximate square root of positive rational numbers that are non-perfect squares

Learning Outcome B1 

Generalize a pattern arising from a problem-solving context using linear equations and verify by substitution

Learning Outcome B2 

Graph linear relations, analyse the graph, and interpolate or extrapolate to solve problems

Learning Outcome B3 

Model and solve problemsusing linear equations of the form:

  • ax = b
  • a/x = b , a≠ 0
  • ax + b = c
  • a/x + b = c , a≠ 0
  • ax = b + cx
  • a(x + b) = c
  • x/a + b = cx + d
  • a(bx + c) = d(ex + f)
  • x/a = b , x ≠ 0

     where a, b, c, d, e, and f are rational numbers

Learning Outcome B4 

Explain and illustrate strategies to solve single variable linear inequalities with rational coefficients within a problem-solving context

Learning Outcome B5 

Demonstrate an understanding of polynomials (limited to polynomials of degree less than or equal to 2)

Learning Outcome B6

Model, record, and explain the operations of addition and subtraction of polynomial expressions, concretely, pictorially, and symbolically (limited to polynomials of degree less than or equal to 2)

Learning Outcome B7

Model, record, and explain the operations of multiplication and division of polynomial expressions (limited to polynomials of degree less than or equal to 2) by monomials, concretely, pictorially, and symbolically

Learning Outcome C1
Solve problems and justify the solution strategy using circle properties, including:

  • the perpendicular from the centre of a circle to a chord bisects the chord
  • the measure of the central angle is equal to twice the measure of the inscribed angle subtended by the same arc
  • the inscribed angles subtended by the same arc are congruent
  • a tangent to a circle is perpendicular to the radius at the point of tangency

Learning Outcome D1 
Describe the effect of:

  • bias
  • use of language
  • ethics
  • cost
  • time and timing
  • privacy
  • cultural sensitivity on the collection of data

Learning Outcome D2 

Select and defend the choice of using either a population or a sample of a population to answer a question

Learning Outcome D3 
Develop and implement a project plan for the collection, display, and analysis of data by

  • formulating a question for investigation
  • choosing a data collection method that includes social considerations
  • selecting a population or a sample
  • collecting the data
  • displaying the collected data in an appropriate manner
  • drawing conclusions to answer the question

Learning Outcome D4 

Demonstrate an understanding of the role of probability in society
