Workplace Math 11

We will be following the curriculum developed in 2017 for this course.

The Big Ideas of the course are:

  • Proportional reasoning is used to make sense of multiplicative relationships.

  • Mathematics informs financial decision making.

  • 3D objects are often represented and described in 2D space.

  • Flexibility with number builds meaning, understanding, and confidence.

  • Representing and analyzing data allows us to notice and wonder about relationships.

There are five major topics:

  • financial literacy: personal investments, loans, and budgeting

  • rate of change

  • how probability and statistics are used in different contexts

  • interpreting graphs in society

  • 3D objects: angles, views, and scale diagrams

Assessment will be based on homework, projects, and unit tests.
