Math

Mathematics in the Academic program for Grades 9 and 10 is less applied and more theoretical in nature. Academic Math courses are designed for students who plan to go on to university and study Mathematics, Science or related disciplines.

Mathematics in the Applied program for Grades 9 and 10 is of a practical nature. The Applied program is designed for students who plan to go to college or follow a trade. It also provides some skills and information for the everyday use of mathematics such as personal finance.

EQAO Math 

Mackenzie Community School (MCS) participates annually in the Ontario Secondary School Mathematics Provincial Assessment under the direction of the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO).

The purpose of the testing is to determine whether or not students have acquired the mathematics skills that they are expected to have learned by the end of Grade 8, as outlined in The Ontario Curriculum. The test results also enhance knowledge about student learning, and are important tool for improvement at the individual school and provincial levels.

The test is written in the Grade 9 year for both Academic and Applied students.

Science

Regardless of their post-secondary destination, science literacy skills are employability skills.

The science in the Academic program is less applied, more theoretical in nature, and designed for students who plan to go on to university and study Mathematics, Science, Engineering or related disciplines.

The science in the Applied program is of a practical nature, and designed for students who plan to go to college as a technician or follow a trade or develop skills and information for the everyday use of science.

  • Students considering careers requiring a university degree should choose:
    • Grade 9 and 10 Academic Science
    • Grade 11 and 12 Science for university bound students
  • Students planning to go to college or the workplace should choose:
    • Grade 9 and 10 Applied Science
    • Grade 11 and 12 Science courses for college or the workplace.
