1. The government has announced that provincial scholarship monies will be determined by the students standing based on their five mandatory provincial exams in Grades 10, 11 and 12: Math, Science, and English 10, Social Studies 11, and English 12. They also stated that optional Gr. 12 exams will no longer be offered. Post Secondary bound students will need to treat their three grade 10 courses seriously for their $1000 or $2000 scholarships.
2. This year will have new curricula being introduced in Gr. 12. The enriched courses, Math 9/10, Foundations and Pre-Calculus 10 Enriched, and Pre-Calculus 11 Enriched will use the McGraw-Hill- Ryerson textbook for their grade as will Math 8 & 9. Pre-Calc 11 Enriched students can also purchase a workbook to aid their learning. A & W Math 10 and Foundations 11, will use the Absolute Value Publications workbook. Students who purchase them for around $16.00 will be able to write in them
and keep them. Students who chose not to purchase this workbook will treat it as a textbook and copy their exercises into their notebooks and return the book at the end of the year. Owning their own will give them an advantage of less time required to take notes and do their homework.. See the link on the left side of this page for course previews and content.
3. I will be working with Mr. H. Wong and Mr. S. Thwaits and the resource support teachers in a Math 8 collaboration project.
4. I have completed my Masters' degree in Educational Practice with SFU.
I aim to help students, parents and teachers find useful materials.
