Algebraic Modelling



Algebraic Modelling is the third in a series of four Mathematics courses designed for common core basic education at the secondary level. This course contains six learning situations in which students solve situational problems by producing algebraic models for real-life situations. Students also solve situational problems by using geometric formulas to calculate perimeters, areas and volumes. In addition, students are given an opportunity to interpret, produce and solve situational problems involving equations with one unknown variable.


Equations (variable, constant, term, degree) First-degree equations with one unknown Order of operations in algebraic expressions Exponents, square roots and cube roots Perimeter, areas and volumes Formulas for finding the volume, lateral area and total area Law of proportions (rule of three) Direct and indirect proportions


Adult students who wish to complete the Secondary Cycle One Mathematics program or who wish to improve their mathematics skills.


MTH-1101-3 and MTH-1102-3. This course also requires good reading ability.
