```					       ROSEDALE HEIGHTS SCHOOL OF THE ARTS
Foundations for College Mathematics (College Preparation)
MBF3C1

Course Description/Rationale/Overview:
This course enables students to broaden their understanding of mathematics as a problem
solving tool in the real world. Students will extend their understanding of quadratic relations;
investigate exponential growth; solve problems involving compound interest; solve financial
problems connected with vehicle ownership; develop their ability to reason by collecting,
analyzing and evaluating data involving one variable; connect probability and statistics and solve
problems in geometry and trigonometry. Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as
they solve problems and communicate their thinking.

1. Trigonometry (9 periods)                       2. Quadratic Functions ( 18 periods)

Assignments (such as homework)
Group Work
Examinations

Late Assignments
Late assignments must be accompanied with a note signed by a parent or guardian
stating the reason for late submission. The note must list the due date of the
assignment and the actual date of submission.
If an assignment is handed in after it has been taken up/handed back, the student
may not receive a mark for it.

Missed Tests
It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements, ahead of time, for any
tests/quizzes that are missed. If a student misses a test/quiz for an unforeseen
reason such as illness, the student must bring a note signed by a parent or guardian and be
prepared to write the test/quiz immediately upon return to school.
