Number (Number Concepts and Number Operations)

Students will:

General Outcome:

Students will:
solve everyday home, community and workplace problems by applying arithmetic operations to whole numbers, decimals, common fractions, percents and integers.

Specific Outcomes:

Students will:

  1. use estimation strategies to estimate and apply arithmetic operations to solve everyday problems involving:
  1. estimate and round numbers and decimals, e.g., money, to the nearest unit, tenth and hundredth to solve problems in everyday contexts [E, PS, R]
  1. assess the reasonableness of applied calculations and problem-solving strategies, using a variety of tools and/or strategies; e.g., estimation, charts, graphs, calculators and/or computers [E, R, T, V]
  1. identify and use appropriate tools, e.g., tables, charts, spreadsheets and calculators, to increase accuracy in everyday and/or work-related problem-solving situations [CN, PS, R, T]
  1. create, use and modify a spreadsheet template for a variety of everyday contexts, including the determination of interest rates, vehicle payments, investments or budgets [CN, PS, R, T]
  1. use a variety of methods and tools to convert fractional percents to decimal forms [CN, PS, R]
  1. express rates and ratios in equivalent forms to solve problems in everyday contexts [PS, R, T]
  1. estimate unit costs and compare costs of everyday purchases [CN, E, PS, R]

 

Patterns and Relations (Patterns and Relationships)

Students will:

General Outcome:

Students will:

express and use patterns, variables and expressions, including those used in business and industry, with graphs to solve problems at home, in the community and in the workplace.

Specific Outcomes:

Students will:

  1. use relationships and patterns to summarize, generalize and predict when solving problems and making decisions in everyday and work-related contexts [CN, PS, R]
  1. generalize patterns arising from everyday problem-solving contexts, using mathematical expressions and equations and/or verifying by substitution [CN, PS, R]

 

Shape and Space (Measurement)

Students will:

General Outcome:

Students will:

estimate, measure and compare, using whole numbers, decimals, fractions and metric (SI) and imperial units of measure, to solve everyday problems.

Specific Outcomes:

Students will:

  1. use appropriate metric (SI) and imperial measuring strategies, tools and units to measure:
  1. measure within acceptable degrees of accuracy, as required in everyday and work-related situations [CN, PS, R, T]
  1. calculate elapsed time in everyday contexts
    [CN, R]
  1. use conversion charts, calculators and/or other tools to compare and convert common metric (SI) and imperial units of measure, as required in everyday contexts
    [R, T]

  1. investigate the types and uses of measuring tools and units within the community and workplace
    [C, V]

 

Statistics and Probability (Collecting and Analyzing Information)

Students will:

General Outcome:

Students will:

develop and implement a plan for the collection, display and examination of data and information, using technology and other strategies as required.

Specific Outcomes:

Students will:

  1. use information and data from a variety of sources to make comparisons, predictions, inferences, conclusions and/or decisions in everyday situations [CN, E, PS, R]
  1. ecord and organize information and data as appropriate in everyday and work-related situations [CN, R]
  1. use probability and statistics to predict upcoming events and to make decisions in everyday life
    [CN, E, R]
