Course Description

The main goals of mathematics education are to prepare students to:
• use mathematics confidently to solve problems
• communicate and reason mathematically
• appreciate and value mathematics
• make connections between mathematics and its applications
• commit themselves to lifelong learning
• become mathematically literate adults, using
mathematics to contribute to society.

Students who have met these goals will:
•gain understanding and appreciation of the contributions of mathematics as a science,philosophy and art
• exhibit a positive attitude toward mathematics
• engage and persevere in mathematical tasks and projects
• contribute to mathematical discussions
• take risks in performing mathematical tasks
• exhibit curiosity.

We will do this by exploring the outcomes set forth in the Program of Studies over the course of the year.


Resources

Resources will include a Math Makes Sense 7 textbook, a Math Make Sense 7 Workbook, a duotang for working on problems and a journal.



Student Performance Assessment

 Students will be assessed using a number of methods, both formative and summative.  Many in-class activities are designated formative, such as worksheets, discussions, assignments, etc., which help the student and the teacher to aid in instruction and to determine progress.  While formative assessments will be assessed, normally using the general rubric, the mark from these assessments will not be counted in the final grade on the report card.

Each unit will also feature a number of summative strategies, which may include tests, projects, portfolio specimens and presentations.  These marks, along with the final exam in June will make up the final report card mark.  Marks will be determined on a running format.

For more information on the grading process, please see the Assessment Policy.

For specifics about the assessments used in each unit, please see the individual unit plans.
