Welcome to Math 20-4.  The goal of this course is to further develop basic math skills found in everyday life by expanding more on the units started in Math 10-4.

The component modules and course weighting are as follows:

Introduction and Review                                                   

Chapter 1 ­– Income and Debt:  Earning and Spending Money            

            Page 11-75


Chapter 2 – Data Analysis:  Using Statistics Meaningfully and Wisely            

            Page  79-123

            Page 319-334


Chapter 3 – Owning and Operating a Vehicle:  A Vehicle of Your Own                   

            Page 133-192


Chapter 4 – Measurement Technology:  From Feet to Metres and Back Again        

            Page 193-242


Chapter 5 – Geometry:  Shapes for Visual Thinking                            

            Page 245-317


Course Review                                                                              

Course Work ( approx. 15% for each chapter)    75%

Final Exam                                                                     25%  

Each chapter in this course is made up of various Exploration sections.  Your mark for each chapter will be comprised of 2 parts:

  1.  Daily classroom work and quizzes
  2.  Unit Exam (or project)

The emphasis of this course will be on classroom work.  Every student should approach the final exam having already earned enough marks to pass the course.

The final exam for this course will be written at a scheduled time during exam week at the end of January, 2014.
