This week, the grade 9 English students completed their summative presentations. The students were required to create a story timeline using the books they read throughout the semester. Free to use any media, they were asked to be creative and connect each story to their academic and personal growth.
This week, the grade 9 math class continued their geometry unit on the properties of triangles. Students learned the process for proving congruence and similarity in triangles, and will be using this knowledge on the EQAO coming up next week.
The grade 9 math class started a new unit in geometry. They learned how to prove geometric theorems such as the parallel line theorem and the opposite angle theorem. Students utilized these theorems in homework questions designed to prepare them for their EQAO assessment at the end of the semester.
The grade 9 English students began reading their final book of the semester: Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie. This novel is an allegory for censorship and various other political undertones in Rushdie’s native country.
