MBF3C College Preparation
Term: Semester 2
Class Start Date: Monday, January 5th, 2015
Class End Date: Wednesday, June 25th, 2015
Course Description:
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, analyzing, 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.
