MBF3C Foundations of Mathematics – Grade 11 Math – College Preparation


MBF3C Grade 11 College Course Description

MBF3C Grade 11 College Math ResourcesThis course enables students to broaden their understanding of mathematics as a problem solving tool in the real world. Students will extend their understanding of quadratic relations; investigate situations involving exponential growth; solve problems involving compound interest; solve financial problems connected with vehicle ownership; develop their ability to reason by collecting, analysing, and evaluating data involving one variable; connect probability and statistics; and solve problems in geometry and trigonometry. Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as they solve problems and
communicate their thinking.
