At St. Joseph, the Mathematics Department strives to offer your child the best opportunity to be successful in the area of mathematics in a number of different ways. Teachers employ a variety of techniques to capture different learning styles. Some of this includes the incorporation of technology such as iPads, graphing calculators and other PEDs. With these tools, students are able to use apps such as Desmos or Geogebra to enrich their learning while being lead through most activities by their teacher either on the same technology or on the SMART Board technologies used in every math classroom.
Some of the online resources supported and encouraged by our teachers include: Homework Help, ixl.com and Khan Academy. Ultimately, students are given the chance to excel at their level and strive to achieve to their potential.
In grade 9, students are required to write the EQAO Standardized test, set by the Ministry of Education for Ontario, in both the Academic and Applied streams. Practice for the test is carried out throughout the semester with in class evaluations. The test is written the last week of classes in each semester depending on when your child is enrolled in their math course. Extra practice and information can be found on the government's site.
