Gr ade 12 EssentialM a t h e m a t i c s (4 0 S )Introduction

IntroductiontothecourseOverviewWelcome to Grade 12 Essential Mathematics! This course is a continuationof the concepts you have been studying in previous years, as well as anintroduction to new topics.As a student enrolled in a distance learning course, you have taken on a dualrole—that of a student and a teacher. As a student, you are responsible formastering the lessons and completing the learning activities and assignments.As a teacher, you are responsible to check your work carefully, noting areas inwhich you need to improve and motivating yourself to succeed.What Will You Learn in This Course?In this course, Grade 12 Essential Mathematics, builds on the knowledgeand skills students gained while studying Grade 11 Essential Mathematics.You will put to use many of the skills that you have already learned to solveproblems and do basic arithmetic operations. This course helps you developthe skills, ideas, and confidence that you will need to make decisions andsolve problems related to consumer applications of mathematics.How Is This Course Organized?The Grade 12 Essential Mathematics course consists of the following eightmodules:QQModule 1: Home FinanceQQModule 2: Geometry and TrigonometryQQModule 3: Business FinanceQQModule 4: ProbabilityQQModule 5: Vehicle FinanceQQModule 6: Career LifeQQModule 7: StatisticsQQModule 8: Precision MeasurementIntroduction3

Each module in this course consists of several lessons, which contain thefollowing components:Examples:QQQQQQQQQQQQLesson Focus: The Lesson Focus at the beginning of each lesson identifiesone or more specific learning outcomes (SLOs) that are addressed inthe lesson. The SLOs identify the knowledge and skills you should haveachieved by the end of the lesson.Introduction: Each lesson begins with an explanation of what you will belearning in that lesson.Lesson: The main body of the lesson is made up of the content that you needto learn. It contains text, explanations, images, diagrams, and completedexamples.Learning Activities: Many (most) lessons include one or more learningactivities that will help you learn about the lesson topics and prepare youfor the assignments, the midterm examination, and the final examination.Once you complete a learning activity, check your responses against thoseprovided in the Learning Activity Answer Key found at the end of eachapplicable module. You will not submit the completed learning activities toyour tutor/marker.Assignments: Assignments are found at the end of each lesson that hasan assignment. You will mail or electronically submit all your completedassignments to your tutor/marker for assessment at the end of each module.In total, all assignments are worth 75% of your final course mark.Summary: Each lesson ends with a brief review of what you just learned.This course also includes the following appendix:QQ4Appendix A: Glossary: The glossary at the end of the course providesdefinitions for an alphabetical list of the terms identified throughout thecourse. You can use the glossary to review terms used in the course.Grade 12 Essential Mathematics

What Resources Will You Need for This Course?You do not need a textbook for this course. All the content is provided directlywithin the course. You will, however, need access to a variety of resources.The required and optional resources for this course are identified below.Required ResourcesFor this course, you will need access to the following resources. If you do nothave access to one or more of these resources, contact your tutor/marker.QQQQA calculator: Use a graphing or scientific calculator as you work throughthis course. You will need the calculator for the examination(s).A metric ruler, an imperial ruler, and a protractor: Use the rulers andprotractor as you work through this course. You will not need the rulers orprotractor for the examination(s).Optional ResourcesQQQQAccess to a computer with spreadsheet and graphing capabilities will be anadvantage but not a requirement. Use of the Internet may be suggested as aresource in some places, but if you do not have access to an online computeryou can still complete the related learning activities and assignmentswithout it.Access to a photocopier would be helpful because it would let you makea copy of your assignments before you send them to your tutor/marker.That way, if you and your tutor/marker want to discuss an assignment, youwould each refer to your own copy.Who Can Help You with This Course?Taking an independent study course is different from taking a course in aclassroom. Instead of relying on the teacher to tell you to complete a learningactivity or an assignment, you must tell yourself to be responsible for yourlearning and for meeting deadlines. There are, however, two people who canhelp you be successful in this course: your tutor/marker and your learningpartner.Introduction5

Your Tutor/MarkerTutor/markers are experienced educators who tutor ISO students andmark assignments and examinations. When you are having difficulty withsomething in this course, contact your tutor/marker, who is there to help you.Your tutor/marker’s name and contact information were sent to you with thiscourse. You can also obtain this information in the Who Is My Tutor/Marker?section of the distance learning website at www.edu.gov.mb.ca/k12/dl/iso/assistance.html .Your Learning PartnerAnother person who can help you with your course is a learning partner.A learning partner is someone you choose who will help you learn. It maybe someone who knows something about mathematics, but it doesn’t haveto be. A learning partner could be someone else who is taking this course,a teacher, a parent or guardian, a sibling, a friend, or anybody else whocan help you. Most importantly, a learning partner should be someone withwhom you feel comfortable and who will support you as you work throughthis course.Your learning partner can help you keep on schedule with your coursework,read the course with you, check your work, look at and respond to yourlearning activities, or help you make sense of assignments. You may evenstudy for your examination(s) with your learning partner. If you and yourlearning partner are taking the same course, however, your assignmentwork should not be identical.How Will You Know How Well You Are Learning?You will know how well you are learning in this course by how well youcomplete the learning activities, assignments, and examinations.Learning ActivitiesEach learning activity has two parts—Part A has BrainPower questions andPart B has questions related to the content in the lesson6Grade 12 Essential Mathematics

Part A: BrainPowerThe BrainPower questions are provided as a warm-up activity for you beforetrying the other questions. Each question should be completed quickly andwithout using a calculator, and most should be completed without usingpencil and paper to write out multiple steps. Some of the questions will relatedirectly to content of the course. Some of the questions will review contentfrom previous courses—content that you need to be able to answer efficiently.Being able to do these questions in a few minutes will be helpful to you asyou continue with your studies in mathematics. If you are finding it is takingyou longer to do the questions, you can try one of the following:nnnwork with your learning partner to find more efficient strategies forcompleting the questionsask your tutor/marker for help with the questionssearch online for websites that help you practice the computations so youcan become more efficient at completing the questions.None of the assignment questions or exam questions will require you to dothe calculations quickly or without a calculator. However, it is for your benefitto complete the questions as they will help you in the course. Also, beingable to successfully complete the BrainPower exercises will help build yourconfidence in mathematics. BrainPower questions are like a warm-up youwould do before competing in a sporting event.Part B: Course Content QuestionsOne of the easiest and fastest ways to find out how much you have learned isto complete Part B of the learning activities. These have been designed to letyou assess yourself by comparing your answers with the answer keys at theend of each module. There is at least one learning activity in each lesson. Youwill need a notebook or loose-leaf pages to write your answers.The learning activities in this course will help you to review and practisewhat you have learned in the lessons. You will not submit the completedlearning activities to your tutor/marker. Instead, you will complete thelearning activities and compare your responses to those provided in theLearning Activity Answer Key found at the end of each module.Make sure you complete the learning activities. Doing so will not only helpyou to practise what you have learned, but will also prepare you to completeyour assignments and the examination(s) successfully. Many of the questionson the examination(s) will be similar to the questions in the learningactivities. Remember that you will not submit learning activities to yourtutor/marker.Introduction7

AssignmentsEach module in this course contains assignments, which you will completeand submit to your tutor/marker for assessment. The assignments are worth atotal of 75% of your final course mark.There are two types of assignments that you must submit to your tutor/marker. Each module has a cover assignment, which you can complete atany time during the module. Lesson assignments are located throughoutthe modules, and include questions similar to the questions in the learningactivities of previous lessons. The cover assignments and lesson assignmentshave space provided for you to write your answers on the question sheets.You need to show all your steps as you work out your solutions, and makesure your answers are clear (include units, where appropriate).The tutor/marker will mark your assignments and return them to you.Remember to keep all marked assignments until you have finished the courseso that you can use them to study for your examinations.Resource SheetWhen you write your Midterm and Final Examinations, you will be allowedto take an Exam Resource Sheet with you into the exam. This sheet will beone letter-sized page, 8½ ‘’ by 11”, with both sides in your handwriting ortypewritten. It is to be submitted with your exam. The Exam Resource Sheetis not worth any marks.Creating your own resource sheet is an excellent way to review.
