Three more lessons added for Grade 9

(added September 13, 2021)

The three most recently added grade 9 lessons:

"How's It Growing? Using Visual Patterns to Explore Algebraic Relationships" allows students to see how the way visual patterns are growing can be interpreted in different ways and how each different way connects to an algebraic representation. They will then learn how to show that all the representations are equivalent.

In the lesson "Aiming into the Box", by looking at data around us, such as sports statistics and news reports, students will explore different ways to represent, analyse, and understand data, including quartile values and box plots.

In the lesson "How Many Equations Can a Line Possibly Have?" students will make connections between algebraic models of linear equations and their representations (graph/table of values/pattern), and describe the effect of the representations when an equation is manipulated or changed in different ways.
 

Course Planning Webinar recording now available

(added September 7, 2021)

The webinar "Course Planning" is now available for viewing on demand, as well as the Lesson "Exploring the History of Mathematics" mentioned within it. The support document with all the links mentioned throughout the webinar will be added shortly.
 

Three new lessons added for Grade 9

(added September 7, 2021)

Three news lessons were recently posted:

"Finding Infinity" introduces students to relations of the form x + y = k, 2x + 2y = k and xy = k and uses these graphs as a platform to explain infinity and density. Throughout the lesson students will create graphs, both by hand and using technology, and will strengthen their understanding of how to use lines and/or curves of best fit to uncover information about the relation.

In the lesson "Exploring the History of Mathematics" students are given a chance to develop their research skills by working in groups to investigate the history of fractions. By completing this scaffolded lesson, students will be more prepared to engage in individual research on a mathematical concept of their choice.

In the lesson "Everything Is Not As It Seems!" students will identify linear and non-linear relationships in a variety of contexts. Students will determine characteristics of linear and non-linear relationships in multiple representations.
 

Transitions Webinar recording and support document now available

(added August 28, 2021)

The webinar "The Elementary to Secondary Transition in Mathematics" is now available for viewing on demand, as well as the support document with all the links mentioned throughout the webinar.
 

Another Webinar / Another Lesson

(added August 24, 2021)

Another webinar is now open for registration: "Course Planning" will be presented on Aug 30th and Sept 1st and will introduce Ontario educators to three (3) course plans, each of which outlines a different way a teacher could structure the 2021 Grade 9 math course.

In the lesson "The Crow and the Pitcher", students will use algebra and coding to solve problems involving measurement and, in doing so, will develop problem-solving strategies. To simulate the story told in the fable, students will gather data, and will later develop an algebraic model and test their model. Students will consolidate strategies for problem solving. Finally, they will test their strategies with a new dunk tank challenge.
 

Two more lessons posted for Grade 9

(added August 23, 2021)

Two more lessons were recently posted: "How Many Ways Can You Divide An Inch?" introduces students to the concept of density as it relates to the rational numbers, while also exploring patterns with fractions and powers through the lens of an Imperial ruler. In the lesson "Future Trends in Climate Change Data" students will use Canadian CO2 Emissions Data to determine trends and make predictions for the future - if nothing is done and if we adopt emissions reduction strategies.
