Course Code:  MEPCA1101

Prerequisite (or Corequisite): Foundations of Mathematics 110

Course Content: This course, followed by later courses in Pre-Calculus and Calculus is designed for entry into post-secondary programs requiring Pre-Calculus. Students demonstrate an understanding of absolute value of real numbers, and solve problems that involve radicals, radical expressions, and radical equations.  Students determine equivalent forms, simplify rational expressions, and solve problems that involve rational equations. They develop an understanding of angles in standard position () and solve problems for these angles using the three primary trigonometric ratios. Polynomial expressions are factored and absolute value functions and quadratic functions are analyzed and graphed.  Students solve problems that involve quadratic equations and solve, algebraically and graphically, problems that involve systems of linear-quadratic and quadratic-quadratic equations in two variables.  They also solve problems that involve linear and quadratic inequalities in two variables, and quadratic inequalities in one variable.

This course is a pre-requisite for Pre-Calculus 12A.

Writing 110

   

Course Code: EELAG1101

Prerequisite(s): None

Course Content:
Writing 110 explores the craft of writing, which focuses on the process as well as the final product. The workshop approach is employed; students engage in writing conferences with the Writing 110 instructor to work through stages of the writing process. Students choose their own writing topics, and their own writing resources to pre-write, draft, revise, edit, and proofread several kinds of writing: personal narrative, descriptive, editorial, public service announcement. The final module allows students to choose between creative writing (students will write either poetry, children’s literature, short story, or humour) and technical writing (students will write a technical procedure). Students work in writing communities with their peers to exchange feedback and encourage progress. The course culminates with the compilation of a writing portfolio in which students reflect upon their progress during the semester.
