Workplace Math 10

Workplace Mathematics 10 Course Overview

Big Ideas

Proportional reasoning is used to make sense
of multiplicative relationships.

3D objects can be examined mathematically by measuring directly and indirectly length, surface area, and volume.

Flexibility with number builds meaning, understanding,
and confidence.

Representing and analyzing data  allows us to notice and wonder about relationships.



This course will prepare you to solve a variety of math problems that may arise in everyday life. You will cultivate an understanding of graphs, trigonometry, unit conversions, surface area and volume, data measurements, probability, and different types of income.
