Important Information Regarding Math 15 During the Summer:

Bulletin from Chinook Learning:

As we plan for Summer School we would like to provide information to our junior Highs for Summer School regarding Math 15.  We are planning to run Math 15 in all 5 Summer School sites: Sir Winston Churchill, Lester B Pearson, Jack James, Western Canada and Lord Beaverbrook.  This class provides foundational math skills to students.  These skills support junior high students in being successful in Math 10C.  The class runs from July 2-17 from 8:15-12:35. 


Week of June 10th:

** here is the link to 'Solaro' which is a bank of PAT resources and practice questions. You need your Calgary Public Library card number and pin.

Math:
- tutorial times: Thursday at lunch and after school from 2:50-4:15
- the end of year review with review notes, videos, and online practice tests are posted under the final review section of Math 9

Monday-Wednesday- stats and probability 
Wednesday and Thursday- review of polynomials and equation solving

Science:
Tutorial times: Monday, June 17th at lunch; Monday afternoon (during school)- June 24th

This study schedule was posted on Thursday:
      - 5 days of reviewing Space 
     - 5 days  reviewing Biodiversity
     - 5 days reviewing Electricity
     - 2-3 days reviewing Chemistry
     -  1-2 days reviewing Envo Chemistry

The review PowerPoint is posted with the sample PAT questions that I discussed in class today (Monday).

Monday- finish Environmental Chemistry
Tuesday- open book test for Envo Chem
Wednesday/Thursday- review Space and Electricity

Power-Up 8 and 9:

Please click here to visit some helpful websites and review math concepts you feel require more of your attention!


About the Courses:

Math 9:  Math 9 is a foundational math course for all junior high school students. This is a very busy course with many learning outcomes and is critical for success in all future math courses. Students are expected to stay on top of homework and review concepts daily in order to ensure maximum success. Students can use the links I post on my resource page that I've linked below, as well as Mathletics to practice foundational skills and topics covered in class. 

Science 9: Science affects virtually every aspect of our lives.  To make informed career choices for the rest of your lives, you will need to understand basic scientific principles, the nature of science itself—when and how it is useful, the scientific process, and the limitations of science.  You will also need to understand and form opinions about the balance of science and technology with political, social, economic, and ethical realities.  All of these will be emphasized and incorporated into the Science Nine program.

 The following units will be covered:

  • Biological Diversity (Social and Environmental Emphasis)
  • Matter and Chemical Change (Nature of Science Emphasis)
  • Environmental Chemistry (Social and Environmental Emphasis)
  • Electrical Principles and Technologies (Science and Technology Emphasis)
  • Space Exploration (Science and Technology Emphasis)

Materials Needed: Notebook/binder, pencil and eraser, scientific calculator, ruler. These materials must be present each day, no excuses! The scientific calculator must have exponent and square root functions, bracket buttons and should not be a graphing calculator.

Power-Up Math 8 and 9:

These two options are intended to give students in Grade 8 and 9 an opportunity to build their academic skills in not only numeracy, but also organization, goal setting, and study skills. The focus in numeracy will be concepts such as place value, rounding/estimation, and proportional reasoning. We will also spend the first five minutes of each class mastering single digit operations, involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Then we will move into integer relations to build upon this foundational understanding. Students require these skills before moving on to factoring, multiples, and powers, which are a key concepts in Math 8 and 9.

Again, please click here for Ms. Booth's resource page where you will find tools and resources for all subjects described above.
