This course is meant for students going into arts, humanities, and other post-secondary programs not requiring calculus. Many universities and colleges in BC will accept Foundations of Mathematics 11 for general admissions. Students going into math, sciences, or engineering should take Pre-Calculus 11 instead of, or in addition to, this course.
The key concepts covered in this course are as follows:
- Measurements – rates, scale diagrams, proportional reasoning; relationships between scale factors, areas, surface areas, and volumes for 2-D and 3-D objects
- Geometry – properties of angles and triangles, the cosine and sine laws
- Logical reasoning-proving conjectures, inductive and deductive reasoning, puzzles and games that involve spatial reasoning
- Statistics – normal distributions, standard deviations, interpreting statistical data, confidence intervals, confidence levels, margin of error
- Relations and Functions – solving systems of linear inequalities, characteristics of quadratic functions
This course is only available through The Learning Centre.
