The EQAO assessment will take place June 11 th and 12 th. The EQAO assessment based on the Grade 9 expectations of The Ontario Curriculum. The EQAO assessment counts as your culminating task. (10% of your final grade)
Day 1: Booklet 1 Estimated TimeAllotted Time 7 multiple-choice questions 4 open-response questions 7 multiple-choice questions 40 minutes50 minutes Day 2: Booklet 2 Estimated TimeAllotted Time 7 multiple-choice questions 4 open-response questions 6 multiple-choice questions 40 minutes50 minutes Student Questionnaire 10 minutes Layout Of Day 1 and 2
Always use pencil Try every question, don’t leave any question blank (25% chance you’ll get it right) Read ALL the answers before choosing the right one. Choose the best answer for every question (Sometimes you can eliminate obvious incorrect answers.) Underline key information that is needed to solve the question.
Do not keep changing your answer- research shows that your first choice is probably the right one. Use the information given to work backwards to find the answer. Use your extra time at the end to check your answers Only fill in one bubble (It will be marked wrong if you fill in more than one)
Read and reread the question When finished, check if you have answered the question. Identify key information (underline it if you need to) Write as clearly as you can Show all your work in the space provided Include as much information as you can when asked to explain or show your work.
Write down the necessary formulas first, then proceed with showing the rest of your work. Don’t skip steps you do on your calculator. Move on to the next question if you don’t know the answer. You can always come back to it later. Remember any answer is better than no answer. Don’t erase your work, even if you think it isn’t right. Drawing pictures may help you understand
Compare: Tell what is the same and what is different. Describe: Use words to create a mental picture for the reader. Determine: Use mathematics to find a solution to the problem. List: Use point form. Explain: Use words and symbols to make your solution clear. Justify: Give reasons and evidence to show your answer is correct. Show your work: Record ALL calculations and all the steps you went through to get your answer. You may use words, numbers, graphs, diagrams, symbols and/or charts.
Number Sense and Algebra: Review the Exponent Laws/Rules Remember to use BEDMAS Linear Relations: Remember to check the scale when determining the slope of a line. Remember to consider the overall trend when answering questions about scatter plots.
Analytic Geometry: Practice rearranging equations from the form Ax+By+C= 0 (Standard Form)to the from y=mx+b. (Slope-Intercept Form) Review questions relating to lines that are perpendicular/parallel. Review how to find equations of lines given Two points Slope and a Point Slope and Y-Intercept Measurement and Geometry: Practice questions involving how to find measures of angles. (required to carry out multiple steps in order to find that angle) Become familiar with the Formula Sheet.
Code: 40 Demonstration of thorough understanding of concepts and/or procedures Application of knowledge and skills shows a high degree of effectiveness due to: - a thorough understanding of the concepts - an accurate application of the procedures Problem solving process shows a high degree of effectiveness due to: - a complete solution process -identification of all important elements of the problem - a thorough understanding of the relationship between all of the important elements of the problem - appropriate conclusions with thorough and insightful supporting evidence
Code: 30 demonstration of considerable understanding of concepts and/or procedures application of knowledge and skills shows considerable effectiveness - due to an understanding of most of the concepts - in spite of minor errors and/or omissions in the application of the procedures problem-solving process shows considerable effectiveness due to -a solution process that is nearly complete - identification of most of the important elements of the problem - a considerable understanding of the relationships between important elements of the problem -appropriate conclusions with supporting evidence
Is your work neat and legible? Have you showed all of the steps? Have you answered the question? Have you included a therefore statement? Does your answer seem right? Did you get the right answer?
