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.

ASSESSMENT AND EVALUATION of student achievement are based on the provincial curriculum expectations and the Achievement Chart for Mathematics, which identifies four categories. Throughout the semester, we will provide you with various opportunities (e.g., quizzes, tests, tasks, journals) to demonstrate your achievement of the curriculum expectations across all categories and receive feedback from your teacher. Your final mark will appear on the report card as a percent. It is policy that 70% of your final mark will be based on assessments that occur throughout the term and 30% will be based on the final summative assessments that occur at the end of the course. The components of your final mark are shown in the chart below.

Knowledge

 

The acquiring of Mathematics-specific content , and the comprehension of its meaning and significance (i.e., knowledge of facts, procedures, use of tools)

30%

Application

 

The use of knowledge and skills to make connections within and between various contexts (i.e., transferring knowledge and skills, making connections)

20%

Thinking

 

The use of critical and creative thinking skills and/or processes (i.e., understanding the problem, making and carrying out a plan, reasoning, proving, problem solving)

10%

Communication

 

The conveying of meaning through various forms (i.e., clarity and organization of expression, use of models/representations, use of terms and symbols)

10%

By the completion of this course every student is required to demonstrate each of the following curriculum
expectations as outlined by the Ministry of Education in The Ontario Curriculum.
 Determine, through investigation, the optimal values of various measurements of rectangles.

 Solve problems involving the measurements of 2-D shapes and the volumes of 3-D figures.
 Determine, through investigation facilitated by dynamic geometry software, geometric
properties and relationships involving 2-D shapes, and apply the results to solving problems.
 Solve problems involving proportional reasoning.

Your learning skills — works independently, teamwork, organization, work habits/homework, and initiative — will be evaluated, separate from
your achievement of the expectations in the course. This evaluation will not be used when determining your final mark. Indicators for each of
the learning skills are as follows (abridged list from Growing Success, 2010):

Responsibility 

Completes and submits class work, homework, and assignments according to agreed-upon timelines. Takes responsibility for and manages own behaviour

Organization 

Devises and follows a plan and process for completing work and tasks. Establishes priorities and manages time to complete tasks and achievement goals.

Independent Work

Uses class time appropriately to complete tasks. Follows instructions with minimal supervision.

Collabaration 

Responds positively to the ideas, opinions, values, and traditions of others. Shares information, resources, and expertise and promotes critical thinking to solve problems and make decisions.

Initiative 

Demonstrates the capacity for innovation and a willingness to take risks. Demonstrates curiosity and interest in learning.

Self-Regulation 

Sets own individual goals and monitors progress towards achieving them. Seeks clarification or assistance when needed.

The Mathematics Department EXPECTS
that you, as a willing responsible student, will:
 be prepared, and on time, for each and every class;
 actively pursue your own mathematics education (participate);
 do your homework regularly and get extra help when needed;
To maximize your performance
on assessments, it is essential
that you keep up with your
understanding of mathematics.
 get caught up with your notes and assignments
if one or more classes are missed;
 keep an open mind – each semester is a fresh start and
a new opportunity
To help you do this we offer
extra help every day, during 3 rd
and 4 th periods, in the Mathletic
Centre (room 219) from a senior
student.
In addition, arrangements
for extra help can be made
with your teacher.

Please make your teacher aware of any UPCOMING absences. If you are absent for an assessment, see your teacher as soon as possible upon your return to school and be prepared to do the assessment that day. For a prolonged absence, discuss possible options with your teacher. If you “skip” an assessment it is possible you will receive a mark of ZERO.
