EQAO Math Testing
During their grade nine math course, students will write the EQAO Ministry Math Assessment. The assessment occurs over two days during the last full week of their grade nine math course. The assessment consists of multiple choice questions and open response questions. Teachers will evaluate the assessment before sending it to the Ministry. This grade is included in the student’s final evaluation. For more information, access the EQAO web site at www.eqao.com or contact the student’s math teacher.
For those students who enjoy math and have an aptitude for mathematics, there are math contests offered by the University of Waterloo. Each grade level has two or three contests during the year. Students interested in writing these contests should talk to their math teacher or visit the Math Office. For more detailed descriptions about the contests, visit www.cemc.uwaterloo.ca.
