 Textbook: Math in Context; Nelson Canada – 1992
 Workbook: Mathematics 3000 Cycle 1 Book 1 – Buzaglo
 Supplemental Material: Teacher handouts and worksheets
 Website: Class tests, notes, and relevant links will be available on the school website and on the moodle site  Math 116

  Competencies: Communication: 25%, Reasoning: 45%, Situational problems: 30%

  Tests 30%, Homework/assignments 10% , Quizzes 10%, Exam 50%

Homework is assigned daily (15-30 mins). It will be checked regularly and marked sporadically.
Review and practice are essential to understanding and retaining the information taught.
Failure to complete homework will result in a loss of marks and/or disciplinary action.

Quizzes are given without prior warning to evaluate day-to-day understanding of the material.

Tests will evaluate the course content and competencies.

Homework, quizzes and tests are to be done in pencil

Curriculum Reform
A major consideration in this course is the students’ ability to solve Situational Problems.
Extra Help
Students having difficulties understanding the material are expected to consult class notes or to
buddy up with another student in the class. Students can meet with the teacher on Monday and
Wednesday mornings between 7:30 and 8:00. After soccer season ends additional sessions will be
scheduled after 3:00.

Course Content
In this course students are taught to develop number sense and how to manipulate numbers,
allowing them to represent and solve many types of problems. In the first term, work is to be done
without the use of a calculator. Mathematics is presented to the students as a precise and logical
language. Specifically, students are taught the order of operations and how it applies to the set of
Rational Numbers. Other topics covered are ratios, rates, percentage and their interrelationships;
geometry definitions, geometric constructions and measurement of area; algebraic theory and an
introduction to basic statistics.

A detailed list of the topics covered during the year has been given to the students, or it may be
accessed through the class webpage.

In keeping with the Quebec educational reform, extra time and consideration will be dedicated to
working on complex tasks and situational problems. This will occur during class time and involve
assignments to be worked on at home.

Math Journals
Students will be recording reflections on experiences in math class, or summarizing their
mathematical ideas. Specific tasks for journal entries on the Moodle Course site will be assigned
by the teacher, but students will be encouraged to make entries of their own choice.
