MATERIALS

 

2” binder

Loose Leaf

Graph Paper

Dividers   (Notes, Application, and Assessments)

Pen, Pencils, and Eraser

Ruler, and Protractor

Calculator

 

** For those who intend on taking Math 10 your calculator should have Sine, Cosine, and Tangent sign, as well as the Square Root Sign. (Scientific Calculator)

 

** For those who intend on taking the foundations or essentials math your calculator should have the square root sign, the rest isn’t necessary.

 

Topics to be covered in Math 9:

 

Chapter 1: Square Roots and Surface Area

  • Students will be expected to determine the exact square root of positive rational numbers.
  • Students will be expected to determine an approximate square root of positive rational numbers.
  • Students will be expected to determine the surface area of composite 3-D objects to solve problems.

 

Chapter 2:  Powers and Exponent Laws

  • Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of powers with integral bases (excluding base 0) and whole number exponents.
  • Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of operations on powers with integral bases (excluding 0) and whole number exponents.
  • Students will be expected to explain and apply the order of operations, including exponents, with and without technology.

 

Chapter 3:  Rational Numbers

  • Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of rational numbers by comparing and ordering rational numbers and solving problems that involve arithmetic operations on rational numbers.
  • Students will be expected to explain and apply the order of operations, including exponents, with and without technology. 

 

Chapter 4:  Linear Relations

  • Students will be expected to generalize a pattern arising from a problem-solving context using a linear equation and verify by substitution.
  • Students will be expected to graph a linear relation, analyze the graph, and interpolate or extrapolate to solve problems.

 

Chapter 5:  Polynomials

  • Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of polynomials (limited to polynomials of degrees less than or equal to two).

  • Students will be expected to model, record, and explain the operations of addition and subtraction of polynomial expressions, concretely, pictorially, and symbolically (limited to polynomials of degrees less than or equal to two).

  • Students will be expected to model, record, and explain the operations of multiplication and division of polynomial expressions, concretely, pictorially, and symbolically (limited to polynomials of degrees less than or equal to two).

     

    Chapter 6:  Linear Equations and Inequalities

  • Students will be expected to model and solve problems, where a,b,c,d,e, and f are rational numbers, using linear equations.
  • Students will be expected to explain and illustrate strategies to solve single variable linear inequalities with rational coefficients within a problem-solving context.

 

Chapter 7:  Similarity and Transformations

  • Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of similarity of polygons
  • Students will be expected to draw and interpret scale drawings of 2-D shapes.
  • Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of line and rotation symmetry.

 

Chapter 8:  Circle Geometry

  • Students will be expected to solve problems and justify the solution strategy, using the following circle properties.
      • The perpendicular from the centre of a circle to a chord bisects the chord.
      • The measure of the central angle is equal to twice the measure of the inscribed angle subtended by the same arc.
      • The inscribed angles subtended by the same arc are congruent.
      • A tangent to a circle is perpendicular to the radius at the point of tangency.

 

Chapter 9:  Probability and Statistics

  • Students will be expected to describe the effect on the collection of data of bias, use of language, ethics, cost, time and timing, privacy, and cultural sensitivity.
  • Students will be expected to select and defend the choice of using either a population or a sample of a population to answer a question.
  • Students will be expected to develop and implement a project plan for the collection, display, and analysis of data by
    • Formulating a question for investigation

    • Choosing a data collection method that includes social considerations.

    • Selecting a population or a sample

    • Collecting the data

    • Displaying the collected data in an appropriate manner

    • Drawing conclusions to answer the question.

  • Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of the role of probability in society.

 

EVALUATION

 

Work accounts for 90% of the final mark and is comprised of Tests, Quiz’s, Assignments, Projects, Mental Math, Problem Solving, and Journal.  Exam accounts for 10% of the final mark.

 

Tests:  If you are absent from a test, you are required to bring a written excuse from a parent/guardian upon your return to class.

 

Quizzes:  Quizzes provide you with the opportunity to assess your ongoing progress and seek extra-help if needed.  You will have a variety of quizzes, some of which you will have advance notice and some “pop” quizzes.

 

 Assignments:  There will be a variety of assignments for you to complete that you will be required to done at school.

 

Projects:  There will be a variety of projects assigned.  Details will be given at a later date.

Exam:  There is a final exam that includes all topics covered.  This exam is worth 10% of the final mark.

 

Important Notes: 

  • Expect to have homework most nights.  A strong work ethic is essential for success.
  • If you are absent for a test, or Quiz you will be expected to make arrangements to write it as soon as possible.  Preferably the day you return.
  • If you are absent on the day an assignment is due, it is due upon your return.
  • When you do miss class, it is your responsibility to get the work you missed.  (All class notes, assignments, and homework).  Once you have done so, if you do not understand something, see me about extra help.
  • DO NOT LET YOURSELF GET BEHIND.  If you are having trouble, see me right away to set up time for extra help.

 

Behaviour Expectations:

  • Students are expected to behave in a manner that is in accordance with safe and respectful learning environment, as outlined in the school discipline policy.
  • Homework is an essential part of this course, and students are expected to do all practice questions assigned.  In-class assignments and probes will be given regularly and are based on practice questions.

 

Having Difficulty?

Here are some strategies:

  • Seek extra-help from peers
  • Attend extra-help with teacher
  • Regularly review your work
  • Get a tutor
  • Meet with teacher to discuss extra support.
