What is MPM1DI?
“This course enables students to develop an understanding of mathematical concepts related to algebra, analytic geometry, and measurement and geometry through investigation, the effective use of technology, and abstract reasoning. Students will investigate relationships, which they will then generalize as equations of lines, and will determine the connections between different representations of a linear relation. They will also explore relationships that emerge from the measurement of three-dimensional figures and two-dimensional shapes. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.”

How To Do Your Best in Math
After class, don’t do your homework! Instead begin by reading over your class notes. The most important part of your notes are the examples. Try the examples on your own without the help of your notes or teacher. If it doesn’t make sense, try looking in your notes, your textbook, or see me. Once you have tried the example(s) on your own, and you understand them completely, it is time to try the homework. The homework questions should relate back to the examples in class, or they will extend some of the ideas you learned in class. The tests and exam questions will be similar as well, so by practicing each day, you will be able to perform your best on the tests and exam. You would not show up to a basketball game without knowing how to do a lay-up, so don’t show up to a Math test without completing ALL of the homework questions.

Attendance
Attendance is an important part of every class. If you miss a day it is your responsibility to borrow the notes from a classmate and come see me about any questions. Refer to outline for daily work assignments.
Work Ethic
Success in this course is directly related to the amount of work and effort you contribute during and outside of class time. Homework and review are a necessary part of the ongoing process. Homework checks will be carried our on an as needed basis. The daily assignments on the handout are work you will need to do to be successful in this course. You will be given ample class time to work on it and are expected to continue your work during MSIP and at home if it is not completed in class.
Proper Form
On any given test, quiz or assignment proper communication and form will be part of the mark. We will review the correct form during class time.
Learning Tools
You may use a scientific calculator (but not a graphing calculator) most of the time. You will need to have a scientific calculator, lined paper, pencil and graphing paper for class. Make sure you have an extra pencil on hand at all times.
Extra Help
There is sufficient time provided during class time to get extra help with your work. You must connect with a classmate for notes when you are absent. If you feel a need to meet with me, seek me out during lunch hour or make arrangements with me and I will be happy to help you. Also, make good use of your MSIP time. If you need help, travel to a math teacher or a friend during your MSIP period that can help you.
Missed Tests and Quizzes
You are expected to make up the test/quiz the day of your return (this will usually happen during MSIP). If this is a problem for any reason it is your responsibility to make arrangements with your teacher. All courses at Huron Heights conform to the assessment, evaluation and reporting policies and procedures of the Waterloo Region District School Board.
