THE ONTARIO CURRICULUM: Mathematics
Related Article: Understanding MTH1W – The New De-streamed Grade 9 Mathematics Course
MTH1W online enables students to develop an understanding of mathematical concepts related to algebra, analytic geometry, and measurement and geometry through investigation, the effective use of technology, and abstract reasoning. Students will investigate relationships, which they will then generalize as equations of lines, and will determine the connections between different representations of a linear relation. They will also explore relationships that emerge from the measurement of three-dimensional figures and two-dimensional shapes. In MTH1W online, students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.UNIT ONE
Essential Question: How were numbers developed, and how are they used across different cultures and contexts today?
In this unit, students will work with different types of numbers, such as powers with positive and negative exponents. Students will solve problems involving positive and negative fractions, decimal numbers, and integers. Students will also build their knowledge and skills related to percentages, ratios, rates and proportions, and make connections to real-life situations.
Algebra and Relations
Essential Question: How can algebra be applied to understand real-world relationships?
Students will develop their understanding of algebraic expressions and equations throughout this unit. Students will learn about various linear and non-linear relations, and increase their understanding of rates of change and apply it to make sense of real-life situations. Students will also apply coding skills to understand complex math concepts and make predictions.
Essential Question: How can data be used to make predictions about real-world scenarios?
Students will build their data literacy skills to examine the collection, representation, and use of data including how data is used to inform decisions. Students will continue to apply mathematical modelling to analyse real-life situations, such as the impact of social media on the economy.
Measurement and Geometry
Essential Question: How can mathematics be used to understand measurement and geometry in the real-world?
In this unit, students will make connections between geometric shapes and their applications in architecture, engineering, and design. Students will analyze and create designs to increase understanding of geometric relationships. Students will also solve real-life problems that involve applying their knowledge of perimeter, area, surface area, and volume, such as planning and creating models of a community garden.
Essential Question: How can mathematics be used to develop financial literacy and make informed financial decisions?
In this final unit, students will build their financial literacy by learning to manage finances, such as working with budgets and understanding appreciation and depreciation of assets. Students will analyze various financial situations and learn how math can be applied to make informed decisions. Students will also examine how interest rates, down payments, and other factors impact purchasing decisions.
