  • Combinations
  • Probability
  • Probability Distributions
  • One-Variable Statistics
  • Two-Variable Statistics

70% of the final grade will be based on evaluation conducted throughout the course. Evidence may include, but is not limited to, teacher observations, teacher-student conversations, and student products.

30% of the final grade will be based on final evaluations that allow students to exhibit comprehensive achievement of the course’s overall expectations. This is broken down as follows:

Expectations

RESPECT

Absences: Students are responsible for making up work missed during an absence. All handouts, worksheets, and completed notes can be found in our Google Classroom or on Mr. Lamont’s website.

Missed Work: It is expected that students complete all assigned work in a timely manner. Students who are absent the day of an assessment (e.g. test or presentation) or when an assignment is due, must speak with their teacher when they return to make arrangements to complete the required work. Whenever possible, students will inform their teacher in advance of their absence.

  • Each assessment will have a final date of submission after which it will no longer be graded. This date will be clearly communicated to students by the teacher. Work that has not been submitted by the final due date will be deemed “incomplete” for the purpose of grade reporting. Failure to complete all required work will negatively impact a student’s final grade, and may prevent successful attainment of the credit.
  • In addition, students who do not submit work in a timely manner should expect to have this reflected in the Learning Skills and comments sections of the report card.

Homework: Math skills are developed in class as well as during homework & study sessions. Work that you do not finish in class must be completed for homework. Be conscientious about completing all assigned work. See your teacher the next day about any difficulties.

MSIP is an integral component of this course. Students can expect that the teacher has designed this course to reflect the fact that course- specific student learning will take place during both class and MSIP time.
As such, students are required to:

  • Attend MSIP every day to meet the essential learning requirements of the course.
  • Effectively use MSIP to complete course work. Effective uses may include: completing homework, working collaboratively, studying for tests or exams, working ahead on course projects or assigned readings, travelling to meet with teachers for extra help, or other activities as determined by the assigning teacher.

Attitude: Contribute to a positive class atmosphere by coming to class prepared, on-time and with the goal of working to the best of your ability.

TOP 4 WAYS to get a better mark in MDM4UI

  1. Lessons and Notes: Notes and worksheets will be available prior to each lesson. Everything can be found in our Google Classroom or on this website!

  2. Do the homework! Failure to do homework causes poor test results. Don’t forget to always check your answers!

  3. Attend ALL classes Each lesson offers tips and techniques when preparing for tests and summative. By attending each class you are actually saving hours of work later on.

Be attentive during lessons, be willing to take risks, and be an active participant in order to benefit fully.

  1. Ask Questions and Seek Help Take advantage of the teacher’s extra help schedule and ask plenty of questions during class. Making mistakes is part of the learning process, so asking questions is critical to your success in this course. Be proactive not reactive!
