Math at Work 10

● Students will be expected to solve problems that involve SI and imperial area measurements of regular, composite, and irregular 2-D shapes and 3-D objects, including decimal and fractional measurements, and verify the solutions.● Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of the Pythagorean theorem by identifying situations that involve right triangles, verifying the formula, applying the formula, and solving problems.

● Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of primary trigonometric ratios (sine, cosine, tangent) by applying similarity to right triangles, generalizing patterns from similar right triangles, applying the primary trigonometric ratios, and solving problems.

● Students will be expected to solve problems that require formulas related to perimeter, area, the Pythagorean theorem and the primary trigonometric ratios.

Mathematic 10 - Foundations and Pre-Cal

● Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of slope with respect to rise and run, line segments and lines, rate of change, parallel lines, and perpendicular lines.● Students will be expected to determine the characteristics of the graphs of linear relations, including the intercepts, slope, domain, and range.

● Students will be expected to relate linear relations to their graphs, expressed in

Feb News:

In High School land almost everyone will be starting a new courses and have a new beginning. But for Math 10 Foundations and Pre-Cal...we are halfway! 4 more chapters to go! We will be starting with relations and functions (which has a lot to do with graphs).

Math at Work 10 will be offered as an alternative which will focus on math used in the work place. We will start with consumerism (unit pricing, foreign money exchange, etc.).

We will also be offering Math at Work 11. It will start off with Surface Area of 3D objects.

Attendance is essential for all Math courses.

Math 10 – This month we have been working polynomials.

Math at Work 10 – We have worked with measuring area of composite and 3D shapes. We are currently working with angles.

Science 10 – We have wrapped up our chemistry unit and have moved on to our physics intro. We are learning about Kinematics.

Math 10 Foundations and Pre-Cal - This month we have been working on Trigonometry.

Math at Work 10 - This month we have been working on measurement in both imperial and Metric units. We now have been working on measurement in both imperial and Metric units. We have no start working on surface area.

Science 10 - we have finished our Sustainable Ecosystems untis and are now moving into our Chemistry unit.

Math 10 Foundations and Pre-Cal – Throughout September, we have been working on our measurement unit. We work on measuring in both SI and Imperial units. We also have been learning how to figure out the volume and surface area of composite shapes.

Math at Work 10 – in this course we have been working on consumerism. We can now figure out and compare unit prices, convert different currencies and convert SI units to Imperial units and vice versa.

Science 10 – we are currently working on Sustainable ecosystems. We look at a variety of biotic and abiotic factors that affect our ecosystems and how we can create sustainable ecosystems.
