TERM 1 (2013/14)

Mathematics 8 and Science 8 are grouped by class. In other words, a student will have the same classmates in Mathematics as in Science. This allows tremendous flexibility of instruction. For example, if a Mathematics unit is being taught, it may make sense to work on the unit each class (every day) sequentially until the unit is completed. Conversely, this same flexibility allows for a series of Science lessons and labs to run sequentially.
