This year, I will be teaching the Gr. 8 math program. Mr. Gulutzan will be teaching both his and my 7's.‚Äč

Math has four broad themes, each of which has many specific skills. You can view them at the Ministry of Education's website. The categories are:

  • Number - divisibility rules, relating positive fractions, decimals and percents, operations with integers

  • Patterns and Relations - linear relations (algebraic expressions and equations), graphing

  • Space and Shape - use of Pi, circles, polygons, 2D relationships - bisectors, perpendicular etc.

  • Statistics and Probability - measures of central tendency (average), outliers, circle graphs, determining likelihood
