  • There will be an optional Mock Exam from 4pm to 7pm on Fri, Jan 7. Sign up in-class with Mr. Khan. There are already 64 students signed up!

  • Important: if you cannot attend the mock exam I strongly encourage you to ask me for a paper copy before the winter holidays, complete it on your own time and show it to me by 3:30pm on Fri, Jan 7 so that we can mark it together. Can't show it to me? Then send it to me by email by 3:30pm on Fri, Jan 7.

  • We only have a handful of evaluations left this term: Test 3, Situational Problem 2 and 3. This means that there's 35.67% of your Term 1 mark left. Besides this, there's no other way to change your mark, so prepare in advance instead of regretting it afterwards.

There are a total of 112 students taking grade 10 Science Math. So far, 92 students have failed something. Failure is normal and is an essential part of learning and improving BUT don't become complacent and accept failure in the long term. Crucially the take away message is that we need to get better. We have, and we will continue to discuss strategies to help you improve and become a more effective learner. Check out some of the strategies by reading over the Tips to Succeed. Remember, this course is like climbing a mountain: it requires a balance of ability and effort. It's tough to start and get into a rhythm; when you fall, it can hurt; when you hit your stride, you start ascending; when you are at the top, it's breathtaking. Some students who are very strong at math, can succeed by simply doing the daily work that is asked of them, while others who are not so strong at math need to compensate by simply doing more work. Success is not guaranteed, but the chances greatly improve for those who are willing to put in a consistent and sustained amount of effort. We are all capable of succeeding and even excelling, if we are willing to work smarter, not harder!
