### Math 10C Course Outline

__Unit I__**: Algebra & Numbers-emphasis 30%**

-factors and multiples

-square roots and cube roots

-irrational numbers

-mixed and entire radicals

-integral & rational exponents

-multiplying binomials (and polynomials in general)

-identifying common factors

-factoring trinomials (and special trinomials)

__Unit II__**: Measurement-emphasis 20%**

-systems of measurement and personal referents and use of measurement instruments

-basic measurement systems and conversions

-surface area and volume of 3-D objects and related problem solving

-trigonometry and right triangle problems

__Unit III__**: Relations & Functions-emphasis 20%**

-interpreting & sketching graphs of relations and functions

-identify slope and understand its meaning (rate of change)

-linear relations and properties of linear functions

-slope-intercept and general form of linear functions

-relating graphs of linear functions to related equations

__Unit IV__**: Linear Equations & Systems-emphasis 30%**

-function notation and equations of lines

-parallel & perpendicular lines

-applications of linear functions

-modelling linear systems of equations

-solving linear systems by graphing, substitution and elimination

-understanding number of solutions in a linear system

-solving problems suing linear systems of equations

Our semester is approximately 90 days in length; the pacing in the course is determined by that and the relative emphasis of each unit. Students can expect to have some homework throughout; this shouldn't be a huge burden provided we can stay on pace within each unit.

Summative evaluation for the course work will consist of Quizzes/Projects (30%) and Unit Exams (70%); this will determine the student's in-class mark. Formative evaluation will occur within each class; this can be intrinsic (through their own reflection on completed tasks) AND extrinsic (feedback from peers or myself). To arrive at the FINAL mark in Math 10C, this in-class mark will have a 70% weighting; the Final Exam will make up the remaining 30%.
