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

The grades 7, 8 & 9 math courses focus on four strands: 

1. Number Sense

2. Patterns and Relations

3. Statistics and Probability

4. Shape and Space

In Math 7
, students will use a variety of resources to assist in their learning. The students will be engaged in practical problems and skills, collaborating with peers as well as activities to expand their understanding. The students will also be using technologies to enhance and communicate their mathematical knowledge. 

In Math 8, students continue their development of foundation skills and build upon their knowledge from grade 7.  Students will apply their learning in a to develop a deeper understanding of concepts and build their problem solving and critical thinking skills.  Having an in-depth understanding of the  math concepts from grades 7 & 8 is an important stepping stone in preparation for grade 9 math. 

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.

Mount Royal Snow Angels: Achilis, Addy, and Iman clear snow from staff cars in the parking lot. Stay safe everyone!

Reminder to Mount Royal families that Thursday September 29th is Orange Shirt Day. Wear orange to honour the Survivors of Residential Schools. #OrangeShirtDay

If this isn't team work- I don't know what is! Mount Royal is getting ready for our #TerryFoxRun tomorrow. If you'd like to donate to the Terry Fox Foundation, our school's link is:

Mount Royal celebrated National Indigenous Peoples Day by engaging in learning, traditional games, Métis hand weaving and most deliciously, the eating of bannock! #NationalIndigenousPeoplesDay
