Room 206
Course Description:
Grade 9 Math lays the foundation for all the mathematics courses from Grades 10 through 12. In this
course you will have your first in-depth look at algebra, learning the tools that will serve you in future
mathematics and science courses alike. Here is an overview of the units that will be covered and the
approximate number of classes each unit will take.

Course Outline
- Number Sense
- Powers and Exponents
- Polynomials
- Linear Equations and Inequalities
- Linear Relations
- Symmetry
- Circle Geometry
- Geometry
- Statistics and Probability

Evaluation
Term Work (75% of final grade) Final Evaluation (25% of final grade)
Divides into the following: Final Exam: 100%
Mental Math 20% (Completed during J une exam week)
Concepts 45%
Problems 30%
Real World 5%

Mental Math - Applies mental math estimation and visualization strategies.
This category is for recording marks related to mental math. Each test will include mental math
fill in the blank or multiple choice questions. Mental math questions will also be given twice a
week in class.

Concepts - Demonstrates an understanding of concepts.
This category is for recording marks related to core mathematical knowledge and understanding.
Each test will include concepts related questions. Quizzes will be given once or twice per unit
studying core concepts. Mathematical vocabulary will be assessed sporadically.

Problems - Communicates and reasons mathematically through problem solving.
This category is for recording marks related to problem solving. Each test will include problem
solving questions. Weekly problem solving journals will be used. Assignments will be given for
each unit.

Real World - Makes meaningful connections with real world applications.
This category is for recording marks related to real world application. Students will be given two
projects throughout the course to allow them to apply mathematical knowledge to the real world.
Materials pens, pencils, eraser, binder, loose-leaf paper, ruler, scissors, scientific calculator
with trigonometry functions (sin. cos. tan.), Geometry Set with compass and protractor
