Feedback form is now closed.
For two years, W.H. Croxford High School has offered Math 15 to grade 10 students as way of preparing them to succeed in Math 10C. Offered in other school boards in the province, such as Calgary Catholic School District and Calgary Board of Education, Math 15 yielded positive results during its first year at WHC and it has become an attractive and valuable option for students. Designed for students who have struggled in Math 9, Math 15 helps students improve their foundational math skills, problem-solving ability, mathematical confidence, and growth mindset. In this session, the presenters will explain the following: research completed while preparing to offer the course, successes and challenges while teaching the course, and the results for students who completed the course. Session participants will also be invited to participate in a discussion about grade 9-to-10 transition in mathematics.
