Number
(Number Concepts and Number Operations)
Students will:
 estimate and solve problems involving numbers, money, decimals, percents, fractions, ratios and proportion in everyday home, workplace and community contexts, using technology as appropriate
 develop and demonstrate number sense to describe quantities, represent numbers in multiple ways and apply appropriate arithmetic operations
 assess the reasonableness of calculations and problemsolving strategies
 communicate mathematically and investigate the application of number concepts and operations in a variety of career and workplace situations, working individually or as members of a team.
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:
 use estimation strategies to estimate and apply arithmetic operations to solve everyday problems involving:
 whole numbers
 integers (add/subtract only)
 decimals
 fractions
 mixed numbers
 percents
[CN, E, PS, R]
 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]
 assess the reasonableness of applied calculations and problemsolving strategies, using a variety of tools and/or strategies; e.g., estimation, charts, graphs, calculators and/or computers [E, R, T, V]
 identify and use appropriate tools, e.g., tables, charts, spreadsheets and calculators, to increase accuracy in everyday and/or workrelated problemsolving situations [CN, PS, R, T]
 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]
 use a variety of methods and tools to convert fractional percents to decimal forms [CN, PS, R]
 express rates and ratios in equivalent forms to solve problems in everyday contexts [PS, R, T]
 estimate unit costs and compare costs of everyday purchases [CN, E, PS, R]
Patterns and Relations (Patterns and Relationships)
Students will:
 recognize that patterns and relationships exist in nature and everyday living
 use patterns and relationships to develop a better understanding of their environments and to solve everyday problems at home, in the workplace and in the community, using technology as appropriate
 assess the reasonableness of calculations and problemsolving strategies
 communicate mathematically and investigate the application of patterns and relationships in a variety of career and workplace situations, working individually or as members of a team.
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:
 use relationships and patterns to summarize, generalize and predict when solving problems and making decisions in everyday and workrelated contexts [CN, PS, R]
 generalize patterns arising from everyday problemsolving contexts, using mathematical expressions and equations and/or verifying by substitution [CN, PS, R]
Shape and Space (Measurement)
Students will:
 estimate and take accurate measurements using everyday metric (SI) and imperial units of measure
 solve problems, using appropriate measuring devices (i.e., metric [SI] and by imperial), strategies and technology in home, workplace and community contexts
 communicate mathematically and investigate the application of measurement knowledge and skills in a variety of career and workplace situations, working individually or as members of a team
 assess the reasonableness of calculations and problemsolving strategies.
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:
 use appropriate metric (SI) and imperial measuring strategies, tools and units to measure:
 length
 volume (capacity)
 mass (weight)
 angles
 time
 temperature
 measure within acceptable degrees of accuracy, as required in everyday and workrelated situations [CN, PS, R, T]
 calculate elapsed time in everyday contexts
[CN, R]

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]
 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:
 collect, generate, interpret, examine and maintain data, charts, graphs and other records for personal use at home, in the workplace and in the community, using technology as appropriate
 use probability, chance and predictions when planning and making everyday decisions
 access the reasonableness of calculations and problemsolving strategies
 communicate mathematically and investigate, collect and examine information in a variety of career and workplace situations, working individually or as members of a team.
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:
 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]
 ecord and organize information and data as appropriate in everyday and workrelated situations [CN, R]
 use probability and statistics to predict upcoming events and to make decisions in everyday life
