In this course students will build on their skills and knowledge in the areas of number, algebra, measurement, geometry, statistics and probability. All students will be expected to develop their skills in the areas of communication and reasoning of mathematical ideas. Students will require a grid book, calculator and geometrical instruments. Students will be given homework each week both from textbooks and through technology. Students studying this course can progress only to Standard Mathematics I or II in the senior years.
- develop efficient strategies for numerical calculation, recognize patterns, describe relationships, apply algebraic techniques and generalization.
- identify, visualize and quantify measures and the attributes of shapes and objects, and explore measurement concepts and geometric relationships, applying formulas, strategies and geometric reasoning in the solution of problems.
- collect, represent, analyse, interpret and evaluate data, assign and use probabilities, and make sound judgement.
