Course Title: Grade 10 Academic Math Online
Course Type: Academic
Course Code: MPM2D
Credit Value: 1
Curriculum Policy Document: Mathematics, The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 9 and 10, 2005 (Revised)
This course is based on the expectations and guidelines set by Ministry of Education’s Ontario Curriculum documents for Grade 9 and 10 Mathematics.
This course broadens students’ understanding of mathematics as it relates to managing data. Students will apply methods for organizing and analysing large amounts of information; solve problems involving probability and statistics; and carry out a culminating investigation that integrates statistical concepts and skills. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics. Students planning to enter university programs in business, the social sciences, and the humanities will find this course of particular interest.
By the end of this course, students will:
- Determine the basic properties of quadratic relations;
- Relate transformations of the graph of y = x2 to the algebraic representation y = a(x – h)2 + k;
- Solve quadratic equations and interpret the solutions with respect to the corresponding relations;
- Solve problems involving quadratic relations;
- Model and solve problems involving the intersection of two straight lines;
- Solve problems using analytic geometry involving properties of lines and line segments;
- Verify geometric properties of triangles and quadrilaterals, using analytic geometry;
- Use their knowledge of ratio and proportion to investigate similar triangles and solve problems related to similarity;
- Solve problems involving right triangles, using the primary trigonometric ratios and the Pythagorean theorem;
- Solve problems involving acute triangles, using the sine law and the cosine law
Grade 10 Math is broken down into the following units:
|1||Introduction to Grade 9 Math|
The overall course is broken into Term Work and the Final Exam:
Both the Term work and the Final Exam are broken into the following skill categories:
Each activity accumulates the following mark total (Note: Marks are weighted by skill categories, not by activities):
There is no required textbook for this course.

Student Achievement Levels
Assessment and evaluation is guided by the Ministry of Education’s Growing Success policy document. Student achievement will be communicated formally to parent(s)/guardian(s) by means of the Provincial Report Card for grades 9 – 12 courses. Information about student reporting, along with yearly communication timelines, can be found on the ‘Programs’ page of the Ministry of Education website. The levels of achievement are associated with percentage grades, and are defined as follows:
|Percentage||Achievement of the Provincial Curriculum Expectations|
|80-100%||The student has demonstrated the required knowledge and skills with a high degree of effectiveness. Achievement surpasses the provincial standard. (Level 4)|
|70-79%||The student has demonstrated the required knowledge and skills with considerable
effectiveness. Achievement meets the provincial standard. (Level 3)
|60-69%||The student has demonstrated the required knowledge and skills with some
effectiveness. Achievement approaches the provincial standard. (Level 2)
|50-59%||The student has demonstrated the required knowledge and skills with limited
effectiveness. Achievement falls much below the provincial standard. (Level 1)
|Below 50%||The student has not demonstrated the required knowledge and skills. Extensive
remediation is required.
