## Mathematics 9

Mathematics 9 Course Overview

Big Ideas

 Numbers represent quantities that canbe decomposed into smaller parts. One-to-one correspondence and a sense of 5 and 10are essential for fluency with numbers. Repeating elements in patterns can be identified. Objects haveattributes that can be described, measured, and compared. Familiar eventscan be describedas likely or unlikelyand compared.

Introduction

You will continue to develop your math competencies in Reasoning & Analyzing, Understanding & Solving, Communicating & Representing and Connecting & Reflecting while extending and broadening knowledge of topics that you have learned up to Math 8.

You will learn about other types of rational numbers, be introduced to powers and polynomials, continue to solve complex linear equations through word problems, delve further into graphing on the Cartesian plane, develop spatial reasoning and consider how statistics is used in our society.
