MDM4U

This course broadens students’ understanding of mathematics as it relates to managing data.  Students will apply methods for organizing large amounts of information; solve problems involving probability and statistics; and carry out a culminating project that integrates statistical concepts and skills.  Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics.  Students planning to enter university programs in business, the social sciences, and the humanities will find this course of particular interest.

TIPS for success:

Textbook: Book Number: __________ Students are expected to follow these rules so that mathematics education can be successful.
a) ATTENDANCE – Students should be present for all classes. If an absence is necessary, then students should obtain notes, worksheets, and homework from the teacher. The missed work should be completed; the student will be responsible for the material on the next quiz, assignment, and test.
b) HOMEWORK – All homework must be completed. If a student is having difficulty then still, every attempt should be made to try each homework question.
c) EXTRA HELP – Students should talk to the teacher if they need extra help. Sometimes the problem is big, and sometimes it is small. It is always better to clear up small problems before they become big problems.

    Hey Mr. Orr!!
    Just wondering how you would copy and paste the “measures” from Fathom into a Mac computer. :S
    The keyboard for the Mac doesn’t have the “print screen” button, so i’m confused as to how I copy and paste that into my word document.
    Thanks! 🙂

    So, does the option, shift and 3/4 work for transferring all graphs/charts? Because I have been trying it, and it doesn’t seem to work… ?
