Math Standard Summary:
The study of mathematics is a fundamental part of a balanced education. It promotes a powerful universal language, analytical reasoning and problemsolving skills that contribute to the development of logical, abstract and critical thinking. Mathematics can help make sense of the world and allows phenomena to be described in precise terms. It also promotes careful analysis and the search for patterns and relationships, skills necessary for success both inside and outside the classroom.
MYP mathematics aims to equip all students with the knowledge, understanding and intellectual capabilities to address further courses in mathematics, as well as to prepare those students who will use mathematics in their workplaces and lives in general.
Units and topics:
Unit 1  Number. What types of numbers are there?

Unit 3  Geometry and Trigonometry. How accurately can we model the real world?

Unit 2  Algebra. Where can we find patterns in real life?

Unit 4  Statistics and Probability. Lies, damn lies and statistics!

Aims: As stated in the MYP Mathematics guide, the aims of MYP Math are to encourage and enable students to


Assessment criteria:
Feedback on and final levels of achievement for assessments are based on four equally weighted assessment criteria

Assessment Criteria

At the end of year 9, students should be able to:

A

Knowing and understanding

select appropriate mathematics when solving problems in both familiar and unfamiliar situations. Apply the selected mathematics successfully when solving problems. Solve problems correctly in a variety of contexts.

B

Investigating patterns

select and apply mathematical problemsolving techniques to discover complex patterns. Describe patterns as general rules consistent with findings. Prove, or verify and justify, general rules.

C

Communicating

use appropriate mathematical language (notation, symbols and terminology) in both oral and written explanations. Use appropriate forms of mathematical representation to present information. Move between different forms of mathematical representation. Communicate complete, coherent and concise mathematical lines of reasoning. Organize information using a logical structure.

D

Applying mathematics in real life contexts

identify relevant elements of authentic reallife situations. Select appropriate mathematical strategies when solving authentic reallife situations. Apply the selected mathematical strategies successfully to reach a solution. Justify the degree of accuracy of a solution. Justify whether a solution makes sense in the context of the authentic reallife situation.

Math Extended Summary:
Math Grade 10 Extended is a course which challenges the student to understand how topics in advanced algebra, trigonometry, and statistics work mathematically, and apply those concepts to areas outside of the classroom. Multiple solutions to equations, data analysis, and use of technology including a graphing calculator are all examples of what students will experience during this course. Student driven inquiry, exploration, and collaboration will be a focus.
Units and topics:
Unit 1 – Polynomial Functions

Unit 3 – Functions, Exponents, Logarithms

Unit 2 – Trigonometry

Unit 4 – Statistics

Aims: As stated in the MYP Mathematics guide the aims of MYP mathematics are to encourage and enable students to:
 enjoy mathematics, develop curiosity and begin to appreciate its elegance and power
 develop an understanding of the principles and nature of mathematics
 communicate clearly and confidently in a variety of contexts
 develop logical, critical and creative thinking
 develop confidence, perseverance, and independence in mathematical thinking and problemsolving
 develop powers of generalization and abstraction
 apply and transfer skills to a wide range of reallife situations, other areas of knowledge and future developments
 appreciate how developments in technology and mathematics have influenced each other
 appreciate the moral, social and ethical implications arising from the work of mathematicians and the applications of mathematics
 appreciate the international dimension in mathematics through an awareness of the universality of mathematics and its multicultural and historical perspectives
 appreciate the contribution of mathematics to other areas of knowledge
 develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to pursue further studies in mathematics
 develop the ability to reflect critically upon their own work and the work of others.
