The textbook for this course is Principles of Mathematics 9 by McGraw-Hill Ryerson. A replacement costs around $90, so be sure to take care of it.

Exam Review

There is a Course Review section toward the end of your textbook. MathWiz is another great resource for exam review questions. Mr. Silvaggio has also prepared a package that you can download and work on.
