Northern C. I. & V. S. - Mathematics Department
MPM1D
2015-2016
Grade 9 Academic Math
COURSE INFORMATION
Text: Principles of Mathematics 9.
McGraw-Hill Ryerson
In general, this course enables students to develop an understanding of
mathematical concepts related to algebra, analytic geometry, and
measurement & geometry through investigation, the effective use of
technology, and abstract reasoning. Students will investigate relationships,
which they will generalize as equations of lines, and will determine the
connections between different representations of a linear relation. They
will explore relationships that emerge from the measurement of 3-D
figures and two-dimensional shapes. Students will reason mathematically
and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.

TOPICS
This course is divided into four broad curriculum
areas with overall expectations in each area:
Number Sense & Algebra
Analytic Geometry
 3-ring binder or duotang
Linear Relations
 Lined paper, graph paper
Measurement & Geometry
 Pencil, eraser, highlighter

Ruler, calculator
You need a scientific calculator
which has an “exponent key.”
(This key looks like xy, yx or ^.)
Note:
Graphing calculators and/or iPads will
be provided for in class activities, but
are not permitted on tests.
How will I be Marked?
Assessment & Evaluation
Formative Assessment will be ongoing and is
intended to provide students with feedback for
improvement.
Learning Skills -Teamwork, Organization, Work
Habits, Works Independently, and Initiative will
be assessed throughout the course.
These are not considered in determination of final grade.
