  • insurance costs (Autopac, fire insurance, life insurance …)
  • many business decisions
  • medical procedures
  • decisions in education (which courses are the best ones to take)
  • weather forecasting

And the list goes on and on. You may also hear probabilities presented in the media. For example, if you eat certain foods, you may have an increased or decreased chance of suffering certain physical ailments. During elections, data is collected in surveys and used to predict the probability of a politician being elected. As you gain a better understanding of probability, you should be able to make better decisions in situations involving chance.

Class # 1709 Essential Mathematics 40S M5: Vehicle Finance

This module on vehicle finance deals with another topic in finance that may be important to anyone planning to own and operate a car. If you decide to buy a car, you can use your own money to pay for the vehicle (pay cash) or make a loan to pay for the vehicle. Another option is leasing a new vehicle for a period of time. Usually, at the end of the lease, you can purchase this vehicle for a previously determined buy-out price. As in renting or buying a house, most financial advisors would probably say that buying a vehicle is the most economical approach. This will be discussed further in Lesson 2. However, the intent of this module is not to determine whether it is best for you to buy or to lease a vehicle. Instead, its intent is to draw your attention to the factors involved and then let you decide which option is best for you. In addition to exploring the differences between leasing and buying a new or used car, you will also calculate costs involved when purchasing, leasing, and maintaining a car. By the end of this module, you should be able to make well informed decisions about which options are best for you.

Class # 1710 Essential Mathematics 40S M6: Career Life

If you, like many students, are not certain about your future career, this module will help you to research and consider career options. If you have already chosen a career, this module will allow you to examine that choice more closely. Some students find that researching their chosen career confirms their choice. Other students find they are less certain about their choice and need to consider other career options. This module is an opportunity for you to think about suitable career possibilities.

Through their research, some students have discovered suitable careers they did not know existed. Other students have decided against pursuing careers they realized would not work for them. Even if you are not sure of your career choice when you complete this module, you should be better informed about choices available to you.

The format of this module is different than other modules in this course. Although the module is presented in lessons, the lessons do not include learning activities. Instead, each lesson has an assignment. Even though there is an assignment after each lesson, these assignments are generally shorter than assignments you have had in previous modules. Also, these assignments include a significant amount of research, and you will be asked to write some reports. You will, however, still need to do some calculations in this lesson! You will be asked to write about your Career Life project on the final examination. Be sure to finish this project and send it in to be marked, so you can have some feedback on it before you write your final examination. Instead of learning new mathematical content, you will be using mathematical skills from Module 1 and Module 5, which deal with Home Finance and Vehicle Finance. You will be applying these mathematical skills to calculate costs, such as housing and transportation, once you are established in your career.

Class # 1711 Essential Mathematics 40S M7: Statistics

Statistics is the branch of mathematics that deals with the collection, organization, and analysis of data. Statistics are frequently mentioned in the news, in radio and television commercials, and on the Internet, including the Statistics Canada website. Throughout this module, statistics from the Statistics Canada website are used to provide information. References to the website itself are also mentioned, so that you may visit the website if you are interested.

Statistics are very frequently used by the media to influence your point of view. Statements such as ”92% of the people surveyed…“ or ”nine out of ten doctors recommend…“ are designed to persuade consumers to agree with the people surveyed or the doctors’ recommendations. As a consumer, you need to understand this information and how to interpret it. This will allow you to recognize biases, and thus make informed decisions.

In previous mathematics courses, you considered a number of ways of organizing and analyzing data. You were introduced to three measures of central tendency: the mean, the median, and the mode. In this module, you will study two additional measures of central tendency. You will also study percentiles and how to interpret statistical information.

Class # 1712 Essential Mathematics 40S M8: Precision Measurement

It is important for you to be able to measure distances. In previous courses, you have measured distances using many different types of measuring devices, including rulers and tape measures. You probably have rulers and tape measures in your home or tool box. Some people also use laser or electronic means to calculate length. In this module, you will be introduced to two instruments that are used for measuring small distances with great precision and accuracy: the Vernier caliper and the micrometer. It would be helpful if you have both a Vernier caliper and a micrometer, but you do not require them in order to complete this module.

Once you take a measurement, it is important for you to know how exact this measurement is. Take a look around you. You probably see a pencil, pen, table, calculator, ruler, electrical outlet, a light, and maybe even a computer. These were all manufactured with varying degrees of precision and accuracy. Have you ever wondered how mechanical parts can be made in any country in the world, and yet still fit the object you are trying to fix right at home? Precision and accuracy are two concepts that make this possible.

In this module, you will be learning about precision, accuracy, uncertainty, and tolerance. These four concepts are all related to the limitations of any measuring instrument. If you are planning on having a career in engineering, machining, carpentry, or even if you plan on just fixing up your own home one day, what you learn in this module will be very useful for you.

Based on previous math lessons, you may be tempted to view a linear equation simply as a problem that needs to be solved. In this module, you will switch that around and use equations to find the solutions to practical problems. You will use pairs of equations that have the same two variables to represent a situation or context, and find solutions to problems by graphing or algebraically solving the system of equations. You will identify the three types of systems of linear equations, describe strategies to solve the systems, and verify solutions.

Class # 1761 Applied Mathematics 30S M1: Quadratic Functions

In previous math courses, you learned about linear functions, which are functions that form a line when graphed. Module 1 will look at quadratic functions, which form a curved shape that can resemble an arch. A quadratic function can be used to describe the path of a rock as it is thrown in the air or the shape of an arch supporting a bridge. Quadratic functions can be used to model behaviour in our world. For example, they can model relationships that have a maximum value, such as the height of a football as it is thrown to a receiver compared to the time the football is in the air, or the expected revenue for an event compared to the price charged per ticket. You will start the module by exploring the characteristics of the shape of a quadratic function and finish the module by applying what you have learned to contexts in our world.

Mathematics has been a field of study since at least 1900 BCE. Over the past four thousand years, many new mathematical concepts have been developed and discovered and many mathematical symbols have been invented to help represent these concepts. Mathematics has become a useful tool in many disciplines, such as science, psychology, medicine, linguistics, sports, cooking, flying, exploring, and communicating.

In this module, you will select an historical event or area of interest where quantitative data are used, and use mathematics to help you research and collect data in order to answer a question, analyze and interpret your findings, and create a presentation to showcase your work.

Class # 1763 Applied Mathematics 30S M3: Reasoning to Solve Problems

Patterns are a common occurrence in the world around you, and you have seen and used numerical and geometric patterns in many contexts. For example, you used a numerical pattern when you learned to recognize whether a number is a multiple of three. You now know that a number is always a multiple of three if the sum of the digits of that number is a multiple of three. This numerical pattern is always true. You will discover and use similar patterns in this module.

You have already observed some geometric patterns in polygons. For example, you know that the sum of the interior angles in a triangle is always 180˚. Similarly, the sum of the interior angles in a quadrilateral is always 360˚. You know that this pattern continues indefinitely, even for polygons with larger numbers of sides.

Some patterns are only valid in certain circumstances, while other patterns are valid in general. Throughout this module, you will be using two types of reasoning in relation to patterns: inductive reasoning and deductive reasoning. You will use inductive reasoning to examine the changes that occur in each step of a pattern to identify a general rule that the pattern follows. For example, if you see the numbers 1, 2, 4, . . ., you might think that the pattern rule is to double each number and use inductive reasoning to conclude that the pattern will continue as 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 . . . . However, with inductive reasoning, the rule many not always be true. Alternatively, you will use deductive reasoning to complete a pattern when you have been given the general rule. Since the rule on which the pattern is based is known, patterns based on deductive reasoning will always be true.

In this module, you will expand your knowledge of geometry from previous mathematics courses, including your knowledge of the properties of triangles and squares. You will investigate and learn to use the properties of polygons and parallel lines, and their angles. If you look around right now, you should be able to see multiple examples of polygons and of parallel lines (e.g., furniture, paper, walls). These properties are especially useful in construction and building applications. Contractors and architects are examples of professionals who use the properties of parallel lines to ensure their designs and creations are properly constructed. You will be learning more about these properties in this module.

Trigonometry is defined as the branch of mathematics that studies the relationships among the sides and angles of a triangle. Many professionals use trigonometry in fields such as engineering, surveying, and crime scene analysis. Have you ever noticed how bridges are made up of triangular shapes? Triangles are used in construction because of their inflexible shape. The more triangles included in the construction of a bridge, the stronger the bridge will be.

In previous courses, you learned how to solve for missing angles and side lengths in triangles that contained a right angle. In this module, you will learn how to solve for missing angles and side lengths in triangles that do not contain a right angle. These triangles are called oblique triangles. To do this, you will learn about two different methods, the Sine Law and the Cosine Law.

Class # 1766 Applied Mathematics 30S M6: Statistics

The world around us is full of data. Media (television, radio, newspaper, websites, billboards) provide data for a variety of different reasons. Data can be used for reaching out to the public (such as a “quit smoking” campaign), advertising, and numerous other purposes. Once data is collected, it can be analyzed and interpreted. Many types of statistical analysis can be performed to reach conclusions about the material being analyzed.

In this module, you will investigate how conclusions are drawn in statistical studies when data is collected from a number of sources. Since people are bombarded with statistics, whether it is through advertising, governmental concerns, or other sources, it is important to learn how the data is analyzed and what the statistics are actually saying. This gives you a better understanding of the validity and reliability of the conclusions that are drawn from the data. In Module 6, you will review how to calculate measures of central tendency such as the mean, median, and mode. You will also learn about measures of dispersion, including the range and standard deviation.

Class # 1716 Applied Mathematics 40S M4: Probability

Welcome to Module 4 of Grade 12 Applied Mathematics! Probability is a natural extension of the logic module you just completed. You will use the language and notation of logic as you consider the mathematics of predictions. The prediction of an event is not the same thing as simply guessing when something could occur. While a prediction and a guess may both be either correct or incorrect, the difference is that a prediction is based on definitive data, while a guess is based on uncertain information. This module will show you that probability is not the same thing as a promise (so don’t blame the weather forecaster when your baseball game gets rained out), and will demonstrate that mathematical predictions are made up of theoretical calculations, include different types of events, can be used in decision making, and can involve subjective judgment.

Pre-Calculus Mathematics 30S

Class # 1769 Pre-Calculus Mathematics 30S M1: Sequences and Series

In previous math courses, you have dealt with patterns in the context of graphs. In this module, you will be dealing with patterns a little differently. Patterns show up all around you in the natural world. The petals in flowers very often appear in a pattern. Pine cones form according to a pattern called a Fibonacci sequence.

Patterns also appear in lists of numbers. Whenever a pattern appears in a list of numbers, it is called a sequence. Sequences have many applications. An automobile will depreciate in value according to a sequence. Real estate and other investments will earn interest or gain in value according to a specific sequence. Loans will be paid according to a predetermined sequence. In this module, you will study two different types of sequences: arithmetic and geometric. You will also study two different types of series: arithmetic and geometric. Series are used when you are trying to find the sum of a large, even infinite, list of numbers. In this module you will learn when it is possible to find the sum of different types of series.

Welcome to the last module of Grade 11 Pre-Calculus Mathematics! In this module, you will be learning about two different types of functions and their graphs.

You will first learn about absolute value functions, which occur when only positive y-values are desired. Absolute value is especially important in distance, as you would never say you are a negative distance away from your destination. You could be 10 kilometres east or 10 kilometres west, but either way you are still 10 kilometres away.

Once you learn about absolute value functions, you will learn about reciprocal functions. Reciprocal functions are used to define many relationships, including gravitational forces between planets, currency exchange, and the amount of time a diver can take to rise to the surface of the water depending on the depth. As you have already studied linear and quadratic functions, you will now learn how to graph the reciprocals of these types of functions in this module.

Class # 1721 Pre-Calculus Mathematics M1: Permutations, Combinations, and the Binomial Theorem

Welcome to your first module of Grade 12 Pre-Calculus Mathematics! In previous mathematics courses, you may have been asked problem-solving questions such as, “How many ways can you assign first, second, and third place in a race if three people are racing?” In this module, you will learn how to answer questions like these quickly and efficiently.

You will learn a method of “fast counting,” called permutations and combinations, that allows you to count large amounts of objects or arrangements accurately and quickly. Anyone can count the number of objects in a set one at a time, but what happens if there are over a million objects to count? You need a method that will produce the answer without it being necessary to count the objects one at a time. Learning these “fast” counting processes is the objective of this module.

This counting method also allows you to expand binomials quickly and efficiently. You will learn how to do this according to a theorem called the Binomial Theorem.

Class # 1722 Pre-Calculus Mathematics 40S M2: Function Transformations

A major portion of this course is the study of functions. You studied some functions in detail in Grade 11 Pre-Calculus Mathematics—specifically, the linear, quadratic, absolute value, and reciprocal functions. You also studied the transformations of quadratic functions. In this module, you will expand on this knowledge and study the transformations of the graphs of functions in general. The most common transformations are translations, reflections, and stretches. This module concentrates on the translations and stretches of functions. The study of reflections is addressed in Module 3.

You will also learn about operations on functions and compositions of functions. Operations on functions include adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing two or more functions. Compositions of functions occur when the value of one function depends on the value of a second function. This is similar to the food chain, and will be explained more in the last lesson of this module.

Note: Definitions and explanations are often given in the learning activities, as well as in the text of the lessons. For this reason, consider the learning activities as part of the lesson, not as review exercises. The answer keys for the learning activities should also be considered as part of the lesson.

Class # 1723 Pre-Calculus Mathematics M3: Reflections

You first started to look at reflections in Grade 5. Throughout the years that followed, you went from reflecting images using a glass mirror to reflecting points in all four quadrants. In this module, you will expand this knowledge even further to learn about the reflections of functions on a coordinate plane.

In this module, you will learn more about different types of functions, all of which involve reflections. There are three main types of reflections including reflections through the x-axis, reflections through the y-axis, and reflections though the line, y = x. In addition to what you learned about in Module 2, reflections are a type of transformation. After you learn about all the different types of reflections, you will be able to graph any variation of a quadratic function, a cubic function, a square root function, and an absolute value function.

As you will learn, reflections through the line, y = x, are related to inverse functions. The concept of “inverse” has been part of your learning with regard to “actions” in the past. When two actions seem to undo each other, they are inverse actions. For example, the action of opening a door undoes the action of closing the door, or the action of sitting down is “undone” by the action of standing up. In arithmetic, the operation of subtraction is undone by the operation of addition, and the operation of multiplication is undone by the operation of division.

Class # 1724 Pre-Calculus Mathematics M4: Polynomials

Functions are a fundamental topic of mathematics. They describe many relationships in mathematics and science. In this module, you will learn all about polynomial functions up to a degree of five. The concepts of factoring that you have studied in previous modules and in previous pre-calculus courses will be extended to include the remainder theorem and factor theorem. This gives the basis for the study of polynomials, their zeros, and their graphs.

Solving algebraic equations by determining the roots of a polynomial is a very old problem in mathematics. However, these equations used to be written out in words. When the current variable notation was introduced many years ago, it made the solution of the roots of polynomial equations much easier. With the onset of computer technology, the solutions are easier still. When you learn how to find the zeros of a polynomial in this module, you will have learned how to solve one of the problems that stumped ancient mathematicians for years!

Class # 1725 Pre-Calculus Mathematics M5: Trigonometric Functions and Unit Circle

There were 15:58 hours of daylight in Winnipeg on July 13th, 2012. Would you expect that this amount would have been any different on July 13th, 2000, or will be any different from the amount on July 13th, 2040? The answer is no. The reason is that this number of hours of daylight on any given day in any specific place will be approximately the same or repeat itself over the years. This information or data will be different for each place in the world, but it will remain repetitive for that place over the years. This is an example of a function (number of daylight hours over time) that is called periodic. It can be modelled by the sine function or the cosine function and is called a sinusoidal. There are many similar such occurrences in the world (for example, the amount of air in your lungs over time, the average daily temperatures during the year, and many other examples of this repetitive phenomenon).

In this module, you will examine trigonometric functions, which are a type of periodic function, and more of the properties and applications associated with them. First, you will study trigonometric ratios in more detail. You have been studying trigonometric ratios since Grade 10 mathematics. In this module, you will study the graphs of the trigonometric functions. You will look at tables of values of these functions, generate their graphs, and list their properties. Using techniques you have been developing since Module 2, you will also study transformations of these periodic functions.

In the last module, you were introduced to the concept of radians and the six trigonometric functions. As well, you were shown how to graph trigonometric functions using transformations. In this module, you will combine all of these concepts in order to solve trigonometric equations and prove various trigonometric identities. In order to find the zeros of various trigonometric functions or to solve the corresponding trigonometric equations, you will develop skills in circular function equation solving. You will also develop relationships amongst these functions called identities.

Identities can be useful as they have the power to reduce what may seem like a very complex expression down to a simpler expression that may involve only one trigonometric ratio. These identities are all constructed from the unit circle. Therefore, you must make sure that you are comfortable dealing with the unit circle and all the concepts discussed in Module 5 before you begin this module!

This module builds on concepts you learned throughout Grade 11 Pre-Calculus Mathematics and throughout the first seven modules of this course. In Grade 11 Pre-Calculus Mathematics you learned how to solve radical and rational equations algebraically. You will be combining this skill with the function transformation skills you have learned throughout this course in order to be able to solve radical and rational equations graphically. Before you do this, you first need to learn how to graph radical and rational functions using transformations and other properties of functions.

Are you planning on a career in either the medical field or in law enforcement? If you are, you may encounter these types of functions. Radical functions can be used in the reconstruction of traffic accidents, as they can be used to model the stopping distance of a vehicle. Rational functions can be used to model the amount of a drug found in a person’s bloodstream over time. There are many more applications of these functions in different fields, including astronomy and business analysis.

Class # 1730 Introduction to Calculus 45S M2: Derivatives

The slope of a line is the same everywhere on the line. The slope of a non-linear function curve is different on different parts of the curve. In this module, you will explore the changing slope of a curve. By using your knowledge of the slope of a line and the tangent line to a curve, you will be able to comment on the slope of a curve. Your understanding of limits will be extended to introduce one of the two main calculus concepts of this course: derivatives.

Class # 1731 Introduction to Calculus 45S M3: Applications of Derivatives

In Module 2, you learned to calculate the derivative of a function using limits, and you learned to use several derivative rules to differentiate some complex functions. Ultimately, calculus concepts are used to solve problems in a wide variety of applications.

In this module, you will apply your understanding of the derivative to four specific categories: particle motion problems, optimization problems, related rate problems, and curve sketching. In each of these applications, you will need to recall and use all of the differentiation rules and, most importantly, apply your understanding that the derivative is the rate of change of one variable with respect to another.

Class # 1732 Introduction to Calculus 45S M4: Integration

In Module 4, you will learn the inverse operation of differentiation called antidifferentiation, which, as you will see, is related to a process called integration. In some applications of calculus, it will be necessary to use antidifferentiation to find the original function when the derivative is known. In other applications, integration will be used to determine the area under the curve of a function.
