The print-based resource (PBR) Math 9 course encourages students to understand the big ideas of math and connect its principles to real life application rather than simply memorize formulas and algorithms.

They will have an opportunity to showcase and develop their own personal Learning Journey Portfolio related to the topic being explored as well as demonstrate achievement based on provincial outcomes and expectations through assignments, projects, and  quizzes designed by the teacher.
