Course Description:
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 twodimensional shapes. Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as they solve
problems and communicate their thinking.

Attendance and Work Completion
•
You must arrive to class ON TIME each day. If you are less than 10 minutes late for
class you will serve a detention during break. Frequent lates will result in a phonecall
home and a referral to the office.
•
Regular attendance is essential for success. A note is required from your parent or
guardian on the first day back from an absence. If a note is not provided, this will result
in a phone call home. Frequent absences will result in a referral to the office.
•
Homework will be assigned, to be completed daily.
•
Students are expected to arrive prepared for class each day, with necessary pens,
pencils, notes and scientific calculator.
•
A student who misses an assessment will make arrangements before the assessment
date to complete the assessment. If the student is unexpectedly absent, the
arrangements should be made the next school day.
Course Evaluation
The evaluation for this course is based on the student's achievement of curriculum expectations. A
full credit is granted and recorded for this course if the student's grade is 50% or higher.
a) Term work will make up 70 % of a students final grade.
The assessments will be divided into categories:
Knowledge/Understanding
Thinking/Inquiry/Problem Solving
Communication
Application
40%
15%
15%
30%
b) Performance on EQAO (10%) and the Final Exam (20%) will make up 30% of a student’s final
EQAO will be held on June 15th and 16th, 2011
c) If a student does not complete all components of the assessment a course incomplete will
result.
Homework, participation, attitude and responsibility
are major factors for success in mathematics classes.
