The focus of the Mathematics department is to help students develop a solid foundation and continual growth in all areas of the subject. The Mathematics curriculum prepares students for their tomorrows. It equips them with essential Mathematics knowledge and skills; with skills of reasoning, problem solving, and communication; and most importantly, with the ability and the incentive to continue learning on their own.
Preparation for the Future
Students interested in pursuing a career in science, pure mathematics, engineering, computer science and medicine should have a strong mathematical background.
Resources and Study Tips
The transition from Grade 8 Math to high school math can often be daunting. With classes going at a faster pace and the absence of “make up tests/ retests”, students often find themselves at a loss. Here are some common study tips that our teachers give to our students. You are encouraged to talk to you individual teachers for more tips.
· Math Help Club (Gr. 9 and 10 only):
o EVERY Tuesday and Wednesday at lunch
o Room 302 - Come bring your lunch and get math help!
o Find on-line lessons for many topics in both math and science.
Great for getting caught up from class absences.
