Simplifying Algebraic Expressions II

A.1.7: solve exponential equations in one variable by determining a common base (e.g., 2 to the x power = 32, 4 to the (5x - 1) power = 2 to the (2(x + 11)) power, 3 to the (5x + 8) power = 27 to the x power)

A.2.2: describe trends based on given graphs, and use the trends to make predictions or justify decisions (e.g., given a graph of the men’s 100-m world record versus the year, predict the world record in the year 2050 and state your assumptions; given a graph showing the rising trend in graduation rates among Aboriginal youth, make predictions about future rates)

A.2.3: recognize that graphs and tables of values communicate information about rate of change, and use a given graph or table of values for a relation to identify the units used to measure rate of change (e.g., for a distance–time graph, the units of rate of change are kilometres per hour; for a table showing earnings over time, the units of rate of change are dollars per hour)

A.2.4: identify when the rate of change is zero, constant, or changing, given a table of values or a graph of a relation, and compare two graphs by describing rate of change (e.g., compare distance–time graphs for a car that is moving at constant speed and a car that is accelerating)

A.2.5: compare, through investigation with technology, the graphs of pairs of relations (i.e., linear, quadratic, exponential) by describing the initial conditions and the behaviour of the rates of change (e.g., compare the graphs of amount versus time for equal initial deposits in simple interest and compound interest accounts)

C.1.2: solve problems involving the areas of rectangles, triangles, and circles, and of related composite shapes, in situations arising from real-world applications

Area of Parallelograms

Perimeter and Area of Rectangles

C.1.3: solve problems involving the volumes and surface areas of rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, and cylinders, and of related composite figures, in situations arising from real-world applications

C.3.5: gather, interpret, and describe information about applications of trigonometry in occupations, and about college programs that explore these applications

Sine, Cosine, and Tangent Ratios

D.1.1: distinguish situations requiring one-variable and two-variable data analysis, describe the associated numerical summaries (e.g., tally charts, summary tables) and graphical summaries (e.g., bar graphs, scatter plots), and recognize questions that each type of analysis addresses (e.g., What is the frequency of a particular trait in a population? What is the mathematical relationship between two variables?)

Box-and-Whisker Plots

Correlation

Histograms

Least-Squares Best Fit Lines

Real-Time Histogram

Solving Using Trend Lines

Stem-and-Leaf Plots

Trends in Scatter Plots

D.1.4: create a graphical summary of two-variable data using a scatter plot (e.g., by identifying and justifying the dependent and independent variables; by drawing the line of best fit, when appropriate), with and without technology

Correlation

Graphing Skills

Least-Squares Best Fit Lines

Solving Using Trend Lines

Trends in Scatter Plots

D.1.7: determine whether a linear model (i.e., a line of best fit) is appropriate given a set of two-variable data, by assessing the correlation between the two variables (i.e., by describing the type of correlation as positive, negative, or none; by describing the strength as strong or weak; by examining the context to determine whether a linear relationship is reasonable)

D.2.3: interpret statistics presented in the media (e.g., the UN’s finding that 2% of the world’s population has more than half the world’s wealth, whereas half the world’s population has only 1% of the world’s wealth), and explain how the media, the advertising industry, and others (e.g., marketers, pollsters) use and misuse statistics (e.g., as represented in graphs) to promote a certain point of view (e.g., by making a general statement based on a weak correlation or an assumed cause-and- effect relationship; by starting the vertical scale on a graph at a value other than zero; by making statements using general population statistics without reference to data specific to minority groups)

D.2.4: assess the validity of conclusions presented in the media by examining sources of data, including Internet sources (i.e., to determine whether they are authoritative, reliable, unbiased, and current), methods of data collection, and possible sources of bias (e.g., sampling bias, non-response bias, a bias in a survey question), and by questioning the analysis of the data (e.g., whether there is any indication of the sample size in the analysis) and conclusions drawn from the data (e.g., whether any assumptions are made about cause and effect)
