Mathematics Curriculum

Current Unit of Study:

The Number System - Real Numbers
Expression and Equations - Equations in one variable / Equations in two variables

Assessments and values: Tests (35pts) Performance Tasks/Projects (35pts) Classwork (15pts) Quizzes (10pts) Homework (5pts)
Homework:​ Homework will be assigned on a daily basis to reinforce material covered in class. Your child will receive a homework grade based on homework completed during a one-month period. The student’s grade begins with an “4” and for each missing homework, one grade is subtracted from that “4”. Homework is checked and corrected every day. A homework detention is given when 3 homeworks are missing in any subject in the same marking period by any teacher

Summative and Formative Assessments: Formative assessments will be given during a unit of study to see where each student is as we progress through a unit.  Summative assessments will be given at the conclusion of a unit.  Students will be given a continual review of the unit will always be given well in advance of an assessment and the students will always be well prepared. Ongoing review of concepts is a must, and not the night before.

Trimesters: Trimesters are given once per trimester and are a cumulative assessment of that trimester’s work. A very comprehensive review is always given.

Projects and Performance Tasks (PT’s): There will be one major project and at least one performance task per Unit of Study.

Math Pin: A Math pin is given to those students at class night who have attained a 4 in every trimester during grade 8. Conduct grade must also be excellent. 

Extra Help: This year, extra help will be on Mondays and Wednesdays during lunch time. Students must make an appointment to come for extra help.
