1. Course Description/Rationale:

This course enables students to consolidate their understanding of linear relations and extend their problem-solving and algebraic skills through investigation, the effective use of technology, and hands-on activities.  Students will develop and graph equations in analytic geometry; solve and apply linear systems, using real-life examples; and explore and interpret graphs of quadratic relations.  Students will investigate similar triangles, the trigonometry of right triangles, and the measurement of three-dimensional figures.  Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as they solve problems and communicate their thinking.

Units of Study:                      




Measurement Systems


Right Triangle Trigonometry


Linear Relations


Linear Equations


Linear Systems


Quadratic Relations


Quadratic Expressions


Volume and Surface Area




2.Textbook:                        Foundations of Mathematics 10: (McGraw-Hill Ryerson) (replacement cost $90)


3. Supplies:     a) Three ring binder with paper, writing materials – pencil, eraser, ruler, etc...

                        b) Scientific Calculator

                        c) Graph paper is required for work in certain areas of the course and can be purchased from             your teacher or your own source.


4. Expectations:  a) Attire – be neat and tidy; clothing should be tasteful, not something anyone could find offensive; NO COATS in classroom 

                           b) Attitude – come to class with a positive attitude, be diligent in your work, be attentive, volunteer answers, ask questions, work quietly, come with required material, have homework finished and be prepared to work for the entire period. Work to the best of your ability and respect the rights of others to learn.

                           c) Homework - mathematical skills are developed in the classroom and strengthened with homework. If you have trouble completing your homework or understanding a topic, see your teacher for extra help. Do not let difficulties drag on until a test is given.

                           d) Absences – students are responsible for all work missed, no matter the reason. If possible make arrangements with me prior to your absence. Missed tests or quizzes are to be written the day you RETURN to school. In some cases a mark of zero may be given for missed work.
