Math 5

Course Overview

Students are continuing their study of mathematics and are developing robust foundational skills, which will prepare them well for future math concepts and course work. Mathematics is one of many tools available to us that help us understand God’s creation to its fullest.

By the end of Math 5, students will be confidently able to use and apply skills dealing with fractions, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, variable equations, area and perimeter, time, shapes, bar graphs, probability, and financial literacy.

The course is assessed using the Mastery Math Method, where students work to demonstrate mastery before moving to a new topic. Students will participate in numerous engaging hands on projects throughout the course, applying the concepts covered as well as developing skills in personal inquiry and reflection.

We are offering two options this year:

Asynchronous: This is the traditional online model of “any time, any pace, any place”. The student works on the course independently. The teacher is available on Skype to help with questions, editing writing.

Synchronous: Students meet with their teacher in a virtual class on Zoom. Cameras are on as our purpose is to build community. The teacher will introduce the lesson and assignment for the week, give instructions, lead discussion, and prepare the students for the week’s work. Students commit to keeping pace with the class and to attending the weekly meeting which will last approximately 15 minutes. To view a class schedule visit https://hcos.ca/syncschedule.
