Resources to help your student navigate their way through math at OP

 

 

EQAO

On the website below you will find most if not all of the information you need to understand and prepare for EQAO.  The website has separated the information into helpful parent and student sections.  To see tests from previous years with solutions which are a great resource to help your child prepare for the assessment click on student resources.  EQAO is worth 15% of your child’s final mark in the academic and applied streams and while we strive to prepare them to the best of our abilities some extra studying at home can’t hurt.  Students enrolled in MAT1L do not write EQAO.
