Apprenticeship and Workplace Mathematics 11 Course Details

Teacher

Mark Swiednicki

Prerequisite

Workplace Math 10 or LF Math 7: Apprenticeship & Workplace

Description

This newly developed Workplace 11 course fully meets the learning outcomes for the new BC Curriculum. This course is aimed at students heading straight into the workforce after graduation, or for those intending to pursue an apprenticeship or trade.

This course was specifically designed to break topics up into manageable sizes in order to help students of all ability levels and backgrounds be successful in secondary math. >/p>

Online lessons are video-based, and students have complete control over the pace at which they learn—lessons can be paused, resumed and repeated. Examples have video, or step-by-step solutions.

Workplace 11 is organized into the following units:
• Unit 1: Graphs and Change
• Unit 2: Investing, Borrowing, and Debt
• Unit 3: Personal Finance
• Unit 4: 3D Objects
• Unit 5: Surveys

Students will be assessed with a mixture of assignments, tests, and projects. Each unit with a supervised test has a practice test similar in length and style to the real test to help students prepare.

Delivery

Student-paced – Students are asked to complete a schedule for themselves using the built in scheduler as one of the first activities in the course. This will give students the big picture of their commitment and progress towards completion.

Summary

Students are assessed through assignments, projects, practice tests, and tests. Students will be given specific feedback on their strengths and how to improve in the course.

There are 2 supervised unit tests in Workplace 11. Each test is intended to take roughly 1.5 hours.

Students in the Greater Victoria area will write their tests at the SIDES Royal Oak campus located at 4575 Wilkinson Road.

Long distance students are responsible for arranging a test supervisor at a school, or academic institution (ex. college, university, or library). Tests supervisors will need to be approved by SIDES administration. Students should actively be arranging a test supervisor while completing the first unit of the course. Students will be required to schedule tests at times that are convenient for the test supervisor.

BC Performance Standards

Support

Local students have access to the SIDES Student Tutoring Centre, where students can get face to face support from a SIDES math teacher. The teacher is also available to help long distance students by telephone, e-mail, or online virtual classes.

Materials

Students need access to a computer and printer to access the lessons and assignments, a scanner to scan student work that will be submitted online, a scientific calculator, and a ruler.

Occasionally students will need access to a digital camera (like a phone camera), and a tape measure that can measure in both metric and imperial units (or separate tape measures for each).

All assignments must be submitted electronically. Paper copies will not be accepted, but a scanner is available at the Royal Oak SIDES campus for students to use.
