Course Description:

This course enables students to develop an understanding of mathematical concepts related to introductory algebra, proportional reasoning, and measurement and geometry through investigation, the effective use of technology, and hands-on activities. Students will investigate real-life examples to develop various representations of linear relations, and will determine the connections between the representations. They will also explore certain relationships that emerge from the measurement of three-dimensional figures and twodimensional shapes. Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as they solve problems and communicate their thinking.

Curriculum Overall Expectations:

A. Number Sense and Algebra

  • A1. solve problems involving proportional reasoning;

  • A2. simplify numerical and polynomial expressions in one variable, and solve simple first-degree equations.

B. Linear Relations

  • B1. apply data-management techniques to investigate relationships between two variables;

  • B2. determine the characteristics of linear relations;

  • B3. demonstrate an understanding of constant rate of change and its connection to linear relations;

  • B4. connect various representations of a linear relation, and solve problems using the representations.

C. Measurement and Geometry

  • C1. determine, through investigation, the optimal values of various measurements of rectangles;

  • C2. solve problems involving the measurements of two-dimensional shapes and the volumes of three-dimensional figures;

  • C3. determine, through investigation facilitated by dynamic geometry software, geometric properties and relationships involving two-dimensional shapes, and apply the results to solving problems.
