Department Members:

The Math curriculum is designed to help students build a solid conceptual foundation in mathematics that will enable them to apply their knowledge and skills and further their learning successfully. Like the elementary curriculum, the secondary curriculum adopts a strong focus on the processes that best enable students to understand mathematical concepts and learn related skills. Attention to the mathematical processes is considered to be essential to a balanced mathematics program. The mathematical processes apply to student learning in all areas of a mathematics course.

To encourage better understanding, grade 9 and 10 students can access Homework Help, a province-wide site found at ontario.ca/HomeworkHelp.  This site offers on-line assistance to students who need help with their math homework.  Qualified math teachers are on-line nightly from 5:30-9:30 Sunday to Thursday.  In addition to this help, all students are encouraged to speak to the math teachers in the department.   Math teachers are available to provide extra help during most lunch hours.

Students who are interested in additional challenges are encouraged to write the University of Waterloo math contests.  These math contests are offered throughout the year for all grades.  Any interested student should speak to his/her math teacher.
