Math Essentials 11: Communication Plan

Sandy Urquhart

This is a one semester course. Students achieving success in this course throughout the semester will receive one math, graduate credit. The course is designed to provide students the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of math and develop practical math skills. We cover topics including graphs, financial math skills, measurement and design.


Course evaluation:

In Class Assignments 50%

Tests 20%

Final Exam 30% *


If students have completed 80% of the

In Class Assignments by January 22, 2017,

then they are eligible to be exempt from the final exam.

This is because I have sufficient data to assess the students on the outcomes for the course.

The mark will then be pro-rated.

Students may still write the final exam if they wish.

Students who wish to succeed in this course should plan to have strong attendance. This includes arriving on time for class.


Parents/Guardians are encouraged to use the school's webpage (and course homework page) and parent portal to stay informed as to the progress of their student. There will be parent/teacher sessions this semester on Nov.16,17.
