Course Description:

This course enables students to consolidate their understanding of linear relations and extend their problem-solving and algebraic skills through investigation, the effective use of technology, and hands-on activities. Students will develop and graph equations in analytic geometry; solve and apply linear systems, using real-life examples; and explore and interpret graphs of quadratic relations. Students will investigate similar triangles, the trigonometry of right triangles, and the measurement of three-dimensional figures. Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as they solve problems and communicate their thinking.

Curriculum Overall Expectations:

A. Measurement and Trigonometry

  • A1 use their knowledge of ratio and proportion to investigate similar triangles and solve problems related to similarity;

  • A2 solve problems involving right triangles, using the primary trigonometric ratios and the Pythagorean theorem;

  • A3 solve problems involving the surface areas and volumes of three-dimensional figures, and use the imperial and metric systems of measurement

B. Modelling Linear Relations

  • B1 manipulate and solve algebraic equations, as needed to solve problems;

  • B2 graph a line and write the equation of a line from given information;

  • B3 solve systems of two linear equations, and solve related problems that arise from realistic situations.

C. Quadratic Relations of the Form y=ax2+bx+c

  • C1 manipulate algebraic expressions, as needed to understand quadratic relations;

  • C2 identify characteristics of quadratic relations;

  • C3 solve problems by interpreting graphs of quadratic relations
