Math for Everyday Life (MEL3E)
This course enables students to broaden their understanding of mathematics as it is applied in important areas of day-to-day living. Students will solve problems associated with earning money, paying taxes, and making purchases. They will apply calculations of simple and compound interest in saving, investing, and borrowing. Students will calculate the costs of transportation and travel in a variety of situations.
Prerequisite: Grade Nine Math (Academic or Applied)
Mathematics for Personal Finance (MBF3C)
This course enables students to broaden their understanding of exponential growth and of important areas of personal finance. Students will investigate properties of exponential functions and develop skills in manipulating exponential expressions; solve problems and investigate financial applications involving compound interest and annuities; and apply mathematics in making informed decisions about transportation, accommodation, and career choices.
Prerequisite: Grade Ten Foundations of Math
Math for Everyday Life (MEL4E)
This course enables students to broaden their understanding of real-world applications of mathematics. Students will analyse data using statistical methods; solve problems involving applications of geometry and trigonometry; solve financial problems connected with annuities, budgets, and renting or owning accommodation; simplify expressions; and solve equations. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems. This course prepares students for college programs in areas such as business, health sciences, and human services, and for certain skilled trades
College\Apprenticeship Math (MAP4C)
This course enables students to broaden their understanding of mathematics as it is applied in the workplace and daily life. Students will investigate questions involving the use of statistics; apply the concept of probability to solve problems involving familiar situations; investigate accommodation costs, create household budgets, and prepare a personal income tax return; use proportional reasoning; estimate and measure; and apply geometric concepts to create designs. Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as they solve problems and communicate their thinking.
