LA Code: 

This term will have two distinct flavours. First we will be looking at lots of maths that you need in everyday life. We will investigate number skills, metric conversions, perimeter, area and volume.

For a final project we will convert a cake recipe using your new mathematical skills - if you got it right, it should taste delicious. If not ...

Then, just because I don't want anyone to get lost, we will look at compass bearings and map scales - we will try some navigating around the city and then you'll be all set to join in a rogaine in the Port Hills.

All students will need a 1J5 maths exercise book.

This course is suitable for students who need to complete the first year of level 5 mathematics.
