MDM4U 2018-2019 Semester 1

Page history last edited by Steve Sweeney 1 year, 10 months ago

MDM4U - Data Management (University Preparation)

 

This course broadens students' understanding of mathematics as it relates to managing data. Students will apply methods for organizing and analysing large amounts of information; apply counting techniques, probability, and statistics in modelling and solving problems; and carry out a data management investigation that integrates the expectations of the course and encourages perseverance and independence. Students planning to pursue university programs in business, the social sciences, or the humanities will find this course of particular interest.


Prerequisites:

  1. MCR3U, Functions, Grade 11, University Preparation; or
  2. MCF3M, Functions and Applications, Grade 11, University/College Preparation

 

Mark Breakdown:

     Unit Tests, Assignments, Quizzes, and other term evaluations: 70%

     Project and Final Exam: 30%

 

This page will have a daily breakdown of the course.  Most recent classes are at the top of the page, while the older classes get pushed to the bottom.

 

The beginning of each unit will be marked in blue.

Evaluations (e.g., tests, assignments, quizzes) will be marked in red.
