MBF3C – Foundations for College Mathematics

1 student

Course Title: Foundations for College Mathematics, Grade 11, College Preparation (MBF3C)
Course Name: Foundations for College Mathematics
Course Code: MBF3C
Grade: 11
Course Type: College Preparation


This 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.

Note: After each unit students can complete a summative assessment to be placed in a growth portfolio. Along with the assessment students write a self-reflection piece where they analyse their performance in each of the achievement chart categories and compare with previous work. The growth portfolio could be counted towards part of their final evaluation mark.
