This newly developed Math 9 course fully meets the learning outcomes for the new BC Curriculum. It is the pre-requisite for Foundations of Mathematics and Pre-Calculus 10, and Workplace Mathematics 10.
This engaging and easy to navigate course was designed to help students reach their full potential in math. Each lesson contains carefully selected practice problems and extra resources.
Online lessons are video-based, and students have complete control over the pace at which they learn—lessons can be paused, resumed and repeated using simple navigation buttons. Examples are interactive with animated step-by-step flash and video whiteboard solutions. Extra resources, including alternate lessons and examples, have been carefully selected to assist students who need additional instruction.
Math 9 is organized into the following units:
Unit 1: Number Operations
Unit 2: Rational Numbers
Unit 3: Powers and Exponents
Unit 4: Polynomials
Unit 5: Linear Relations
Unit 6: Solving Linear Equations
Unit 7: Scale Factor and Similarity
Unit 8: The Language of Finance
Unit 9: Data Analysis
Students will be assessed with assignments, projects and unit tests. These are all submitted online.
Student-paced – Students are asked to complete a schedule for themselves using the built in scheduler as one of the first activities in the course. This will give students the big picture of their commitment and progress towards completion.
Students are assessed through assignments, projects, and tests. With their submissions, students will be given specific feedback on their strengths and how to improve in the course.
The lessons are designed to be completed independently, however, we recognize that there will be times when students struggle with certain concepts, so teachers are available to help students by telephone, e-mail, or online virtual classes.
Students need access to a computer with reliable internet access, a webcam and microphone, a printer to print notes and assignments, a scanner (or mobile phone scanning app such as Genius Scan) to scan student work that will be submitted online, a scientific calculator, and a ruler. Some assignments will also require access to a digital camera, like a phone camera, for taking photos and recording videos.
All assignments must be submitted electronically.
