Mathematics

The study of Mathematics is integral in order to function as a contributing citizen and life-long learner in today's society. Our department's goal is to instil students with an appreciation for Mathematics and prepare them with the necessary mathematical and literacy skills necessary for their selected post-secondary pathway.

Grade 9 EQAO Assessment of Mathematics

The Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics tests the math skills students are expected to have learned by the end of Grade 9. Different versions of the test are administered in the academic and the applied math courses. Students in first-semester math courses take the test during a two-week testing window in January; students in second-semester or full-year math courses take the test during a two-week testing window in June. For more information and examples of the assessment and scoring materials, please visit Education Quality and Assessment Office (EQAO).
