successfully complete this course will be granted a grade 11 credit. Students must
successfully complete the common course, Foundation and Pre-calculus 10, prior
to taking this course. This course is a prerequisite to Foundations of Mathematics
30.
Topics Include:
 inductive and deductive reasoning

A large cube is constructed from individual unit
cubes and then dipped into paint. When the paint
has dried, it is disassembled into the original unit
cubes. You are told that 486 of these unit cubes
have exactly one face painted.
How many unit cubes were used to construct the
large cube?
How many of the unit cubes have …. two faces
painted, three faces painted, no faces painted?
As teachers of mathematics, we want our
students not only to understand what they
think but also to be able to articulate how
they arrived at those understandings.

We need to unpack outcomes and develop
rubrics for all 3 courses.
We will try to share the work-load across the
teachers.
Supports available
◦ Templates (Curriculum Corner or handouts)
◦ Curricular Documents (online or in print)
◦ Textbook Resources

Please forward completed documents to
myself for posting on Curriculum Corner.
Contextualization and making connections
to the experiences of learners are powerful
processes in developing mathematical
understanding. When mathematical ideas
are connected to each other or to realworld phenomena, students begin to view
mathematics as useful, relevant, and
integrated.

Outcome FM 20.7
Demonstrate understanding of the
interpretation of statistical data, including:
• confidence intervals
• confidence levels
• margin of error.
Note: It is intended that the focus of this outcome be on
interpretation of data rather than on statistical calculations.
Opinion polls from a sub group (sample)
of a larger population
Quality control checks in large scale
manufacturing / production lines
A poll determined that 81% of people who live
in Canada know that climate change is
affecting Inuit people more than the rest of
Canadians. The results of the survey are
considered accurate within ±3 % points, 19
times out of 20.
A cereal company takes a random sample
from their production line to check the
masses of the boxes of cereal. For a sample
of 200 boxes, the mean mass is 542 grams,
with a margin of error of ±1.9 grams. The
result is considered accurate 95% of the time.
TORONTO (Reuters) - The Conservatives have a lead of about
9 points over the Liberals in an opinion poll released on
Saturday, April 11 hovering around levels that could give
them a majority in the May 2 federal election. The Nanos
Research tracking poll of results over three days of surveys
put support for the Conservatives at 40.5 percent, barely
changed from 40.6 in Friday's poll. Support for the main
opposition Liberals was at 31.7 percent, up slightly from 31.1
percent, while the New Democratic Party fell to 13.2 percent
from 14.9 percent.
The daily tracking figures are based on a three-day rolling
telephone sample of 1,001 decided voters and is considered
accurate to within 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
