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. 

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

Students will be assessed on 5 Stems/Outcomes:

  1. Understands mathematical concepts and relationships

  2. Uses mathematical reasoning to analyze and solve problems

  3. Explores and develops strategies for mental mathematics and estimation
  4. Develops mathematical procedures and strategies for computation 
  5. Models, represents and communicates mathematical ideas

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.

RT @UsihChristopher: Important: Parents/guardians are required to assess students daily for symptoms of COVID-19 before the start of the school day using the daily screening questionnaire (checklist), available here: Anyone who is experiencing symptoms cannot enter a school.
