Artifact: From Tracey Uhrich at RCHS for Outcome WA10.1 (Workplace and Apprenticeship Math 10)
Artifact Description: Students need to gather data from grocery store and make decisions on best to purchase. They must work together to put their findings into a PowerPoint to share with their peers.
"This video clearly shows what an average day is like for an agricultural technician apprentice. An agricultural technician is almost like a mechanic for agricultural equipment. They deal with everything from tractors to combine harvesters and potato planters."
"The Saskatchewan Youth Apprenticeship (SYA) program gives high school students the opportunity to learn more about skilled trades career pathways and gain a head start on their skilled trades career, should they register as an apprentice after graduation."
Work Place and Apprenticeship Math 30- What Bank To Use When Starting A Small Business
In this lesson student will be developing an idea for a possible small business that they would like to start and run. Once they have developed an idea for a business they will have to research what services different financial institutions offered in their area, or the province. Once they have finished seeing what services are out there, students will then have to decide what institution they would like to use, and determine what requirements they need to meet from the bank. Depending on how much time you would like to spend on this you could have students even come up with a loan proposal and a business plan as well. This can be done in partners or the students can work on the alone as well.
The way this assignment is formatted, it is meant to be outside measuring inaccessibly tall. The students already had a very good understanding of the primary trig ratios and how to use them, as they had already taken Foundations and Pre-Calculus 10. We did a quick review of sine, cosine and tangent. If I had a group of students who were unfamiliar with the ratios, I would take a day or two to introduce the ratios. A good understanding of the trig ratios is necessary for them to be able to do a good job with this assignment.
Since we were using apps on the iPad, I took a good 20-30 minutes to explain the logistics behind how to hold the iPad, etc. in order to get accurate measurements with the Tape Measure app and the Clinometer app.
