The Fletcher's Meadow S.S. Mathematics Department was the proud recipient of the Ken Fryer Award presented by OAME (Ontario Association of Mathematics Education) for the top department in the province in the 2005-2006 school year. It was awarded for overwhelming collegiality, implementation of new curriculum and innovative programs with new technology.
Technology has had an impact on many aspects of our lives including education. Students in math will use graphing technology, internet-enabled devices and apps to explore and invetigate mathematical concepts. In addition to using technology to explore math, students will need to use Google Classroom to remain up to date on assignments and at times to post work as evidence of their learning.
Grade 8 Review Resources
The Grade 8 Review package and the Grade 8 Review Diagnostic Test. are resources that students can work through in order to ensure that they are ready for the content that we will cover in Grade 9.
All students enrolled in Grade 9 Applied and Academic math are required to write the Grade 9 EQAO Assessment on Math. The timing of the assissment is at the end of each semester.
Math Extra Help
In order to address misconceptions and to act on feedback provided in class, students should take the initiative and ask for help whenever necessary. They should speak to their teacher and make an appointment to see them at a mutually agreed upon time. Teachers are usually available at lunch and after school.
