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.
Students will be assessed with send-in assignments which can be submitted online, tests, and projects.
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.
There is a send-in assignment after each unit, which the teacher will use to assess the student’s understanding, and give the student specific feedback on how to improve in the course. Supervised tests will be written after Units 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. Units 8 and 9 finish with projects that use the skills from those units.
Math 9 concludes with a final exam.
Each Unit Test, Project, and the Final Test are weighted equally in the course.
Local students have access to the SIDES Student Tutoring Centre, where students can get face to face support from a SIDES math teacher. The teacher is also available to help long distance students by telephone, e-mail, or online virtual classes.
Students need access to a computer and printer to access the lessons and assignments, a scanner to scan student work that will be submitted online, a scientific calculator, and a ruler.
All assignments must be submitted electronically. Paper copies will not be accepted, but a scanner is available at the Royal Oak SIDES campus for students to use.
