MFM1P Foundations of Mathematics – Grade 9 (Applied)
GRADE: 9 (Applied)
AVAILABILITY: Blyth Academy Online
THE ONTARIO CURRICULUM: Mathematics
UNIT ONEYoung Youth Years
- In this unit and all subsequent units, students will be working on four main strands: Geometry, Linear Relations and Equations, Algebra and Proportions. In Geometry, students will look to use and apply the Pythagorean Theorem. In addition, students will also evaluate the area and perimeter of 2D shapes. In Linear Relations, students will make inferences and observations from graphs and plots that exhibit linear relations including scatter plots. In Algebra, students will work with inverse operations and simplify numerical expressions. In Proportions, students will work with ratios, examining equivalency and solving unknown variables.
UNIT TWOTricky Teenage Times
- In this unit, students will study Geometry by determining the maximum area of a rectangle with fixed perimeters and determine the minimum perimeter with a fixed area. In Linear Relations, students will examine properties of linear relations, rates of change, initial values and identify topics that involve two-variable relationships. In Algebra, students will solve first degree equations and look at geometric/algebraic representations of single variable terms.
UNIT THREELearning Life Lessons
- In this unit, in geometry, students will be optimizing the area or perimeters of rectangles. In Linear Relations, students will find the rate of change of linear relations using two points and express linear relations using the rate of change and initial values. In Algebra, students will model first degree equations and compare the algebraic method with the graphing method. In Proportions, students will examine unit rates and represent equivalent ratios and proportions.
UNIT FOURAging Adults
- In this unit, students will study Geometry by finding the formulas for the volume of a pyramid, cone and a sphere and solve problems using these formulas. In Linear Relations, students will determine values of a linear relation from a table of values, equation or by interpolating/extrapolating. In Algebra, students will add and subtract and multiply polynomials. students will also substitute into algebraic equations and solve for one variable. In Proportions, students will solve problems involving ratios, rates and directly proportional relationships such as scale drawings.
UNIT FIVEReaching Retirement
- In this unit, students will examine angles in and out of polygons as well as investigate angles formed by parallel and perpendicular lines. In Linear Relations, students will construct lines and determine the points of intersections. Students will also model various linear relationships and interpret how a graph can change based on the conditions of the situation.
