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

Grade 7s were out and about today, sketching, journaling, and enjoying our neighbourhood murals. What a fun way to engage with mentor texts!

Thank you to all of the Lions who reminded us of why we Remember. Veterans Food Bank donations are welcomed until Friday, November 19. #WeAreCBE. #LestWeForget

Lest we forget. Thank you @Advantage_Ford for lending us your giant Canada Flag for use in our Remembrance Day Service.
