GW GRAHAM SECONDARY SCHOOL
COURSE OUTLINE & EXPECTATIONS: 2019-2020
COURSE: Math 9 TEACHER: Ms. Chernoff

Please purchase a scientific calculator for your child for this course.
I recommend Texas Instruments – Scientific TI-30XA.
Ensure their name is printed on the calculator.
Check the Parent Portal on MyEdBC to check your child's mark. The log in information is on the school website.
To ensure the greatest benefit is derived from each course, the following minimal responsibilities are expected of each student:
Student Responsibility Consequence/Rationale
1. Regular attendance is essential
School policy applies to unexcused absences.
2. Arrive to class on time
You are expected to make up missed classroom time at lunch or after school.
3. Report to class with the necessary books and supplies
Organization will help you be more successful.
4. Complete each assignment to the best of your ability and hand in on time
The marks you earn are reflected in your effort.
5. Exhibit responsible, cooperative classroom behaviour at all times
You will be asked to move and/or leave if your behaviour interferes with the learning environment of others:
You are responsible for all work missed while absent.
If you miss homework, quiz or exam: All quizzes and exams must be made up at lunch or after school.
EvaluationIf you fail this course you must repeat it. Ask for help when needed.
Weighting of Course Marks
Course marks will be determined by the following distribution:
Daily Quizzes: 20%
Mental Math/Skill Development: 10% (Chapter Puzzle Reviews are in this category)
This is a formal, common scheduled exam that will be given at the end of the semester.
In Grades 9 and 10 - 20% of final grade.
Students are expected to complete Math homework for each class. Homework is given daily. The question and all work needs to be shown. Work that shows only answers is not acceptable and will be graded as zero. The course is semestered and moving quickly so regular attendance is extremely important.
Key Tab Checks
You must keep an up-to-date key tab containing course notes and study notes for math. This is a valuable tool for the open book tests at the end of each unit.
