We will explore interior and exterior angles of triangles and other polygons, perimeter and area calculations, as well as volume and surface area for a number of different shapes including composite figures, pyramids, cones, prisms and spheres. This unit will have one test on Wednesday January 5 th, 2011 and an in-class assignment due Friday January 7 th , 2011.

I would encourage you to explore the EQAO website at www.eqao.com for sample assessment materials. The navigation for the site is as follows: Select Student Resources at the top of the page Click on Grade 9 Assessment of Math Scroll down to Sample Assessment Questions This link will provide you with sample questions from previous assessments for extra practice. I would suggest starting with the most recent assessments and working backwards to the older assessments. After the EQAO testing is complete, we will continue our review for the final evaluation, worth 15% of final mark, which will take place on Friday January 28, 2011 at 8:30am. If you have any questions or concerns, please dont hesitate to call or e-mail me. Regards, Aneta MagolonBrown...
