Principles of Mathematics (French Immersion - Academic) MPM1DF
This course is for students in the Extended French Program. This course enables students to develop an understanding of mathematical concepts related to algebra, analytic geometry, and measurement and gemetry through investigation, the effective us of technology, and abstract reasoning. Students will investigate relationships, which they will then generalize as equations of lines, and will determine the connections between different representations of a linear relation. They will also explore relationships that emerge from the measurement of three-dimensional figures and two-dimensional shapes. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.
