Math is more than memorizing formulas and doing calculations. Math involves:

  • Highly practical and hands-on problems and skills
  • Rich problem-solving activities in collaboration with your peers
  • Some problems that will stretch your understanding to the abstract and theoretical
  • Using technology to develop, demonstrate and communicate your mathematical understandings

Math 6 

Operations with numbers. Your child will convert between improper fractions and mixed numbers, learn about and use integers, and understand the meaning of ratio and percent. They will multiply and divide decimal numbers, and perform operations with whole numbers using order of operations. Your child will use variables, graphs, and tables to show number patterns. 

Math in Motion: Fractions and Space at Telus Spark this April.  

Grade 7 Math 

In grade seven students will continue to build on the mathematical knowledge and skills they have developed so far.  Students will explore the relationships between numbers and operations by examining divisibility rules; solving problems with fractions, decimals and percent; and adding and subtracting integers.  Students will expand their algebraic reasoning skills by solving one and two-step equations, and developing formulas for finding the perimeter and area of various shapes. They will analyze data sets by creating line and circle graphs, and by determining the mean, median, and mode. 

Grade 8 Math

In math this year, students continue to explore the integer number system through the lenses of conceptual understanding, problem solving, and numeracy. The topics below are used to guide their learning:  -Estimate square roots of numbers -Solve problems involving percents greater than or equal to 0% -Express percents as fractions and decimals -Solve linear equations involving integer coefficients and constants -Use tables, graphs, equations and words to describe number patterns -Represent 3-D objects as nets and in different views -Determine the surface area of rectangular prisms, triangular prisms and cylinders -Develop and apply formulas for the volume of rectangular prisms, triangular prisms and cylinders -Understand congruency of polygons -Interpret graphs critically

Grade 9 Math

In math this year, students continue to explore rational number, making connections between this number system and concepts explored in previous grades. Students are also introduced to exponents and polynomials this year and begin to work with them through the lenses of conceptual understanding, problem solving, and numeracy. The topics below are used to guide their learning: 

Understand powers with integral bases and whole number exponents -Compare and order fractions and decimals -add, subtract, multiply and divide rational numbers -Determine square and roots of perfect and non-perfect rational numbers -Interpolate or extrapolate from the graph of a linear relation to solve problems -Operations on polynomials -Solve problems involving surface area of composite 3-D objects -Understand similarity of polygons -Understand line and rotation symmetry -Understand data collection techniques and biases
