This course enables students to develop an understanding of mathematical concepts related to introductory algebra, proportional reasoning, and measurement and geometry through investigation, the effective use of technology, and hands-on activities. Students will investigate real-life examples to develop various representations of linear relations, and will determine the connections between the representations. They will also explore certain relationships that emerge from the measurement of three-dimensional figures and two-dimensional shapes. Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as they solve problems and communicate their thinking.
This course focuses on real-world applications of mathematics. Students will build upon many of the concepts that were covered in grade 8, and explore new topics. It is vital that all students attend class regularly, and catch up on any missed homework in a timely fashion.
Students should have a good understanding of fundamental numeracy skills, including arithmetic and algebra. Students who need help mastering these basic skills, or who could benefit from extra help with homework, should check out our school’s Counting On You program.
