Math
9 Applied/Academic Study Guide NEW!
Revised Version #3 now available
In
Ontario, the overall expectations outlined by the Ministry of
Education are very similar for both Math 9 Applied
and Math 9 Academic courses, so this book can
be used for either course. While the overall stress of this study
guide is towards helping the Applied student succeed,
we have also included some multistep questions and calculations
of prisms and cylinders to comply with all of the specific expectations
of the Academic Program of Studies. Throughout the book are helpful
hints to jog your memory, methods to make learning concepts much
easier, and a series of exercises, pop quizzes and final exams.
This means you will become increasingly confident and prepared
when it comes to school tests. Supplementary exercises are included
for students who want extra reinforcement. This book was recently
revised by a 39 year Ontario math professional teacher as an added
benefit to students of his many years of teaching experience including
the new Ontario math curriculum. All of these supplementary exercises
compliment the present Math 9 Text Ontario edition of
AddisonWesley Mathematics 9 (ISBN 0201614737 5).

Math
9 Applied/Academic Workbook 1 NEW!
Exercises
in the Math 9 Workbook compliment the Math 9 Study Guide providing
both much needed summative questions as well as many classic drill
and practice questions. Once again you not only have a great variety
of questions but also complete solutions to give you that extra
edge to excel beyond the average student. The questions were designed
by both a retired professional math teacher and an honours mathematics
graduate who is also involved in tutoring students in the new
Ontario Math curriculum. Once again, this will give you an excellent
overview of any type of question you may be tested on during your
school year. The drill and practice questions in this workbook
were derived from a combination of questions received from a number
of Ontario schools and from those created by both authors. Students
receive a great insight into the variety of questions and exercises
presently used by teachers in Ontario. We recommend that you use
the EZ Learning Solutions workbooks on a daily basis to build

Fermi
Math 9 Workbook 2 NEW!
Exercises
in the Math 9 Workbook 2, Fermi Math Problem Solving, follow new
recommendations from the Ministry of Education for Math 9 in Ontario
schools. The Fermi Math 9 problem solving workbook provides unique
step by step problem solving procedures that combine math and
science calculations. Teachers, students, and parents will appreciate
not only following the scientific methodology but the ability
to integrate many disciplines in real life applications following
the Enrico Fermi method of estimation used to develop strong analytical
and problem solving skills. Fermi incredible estimation skills
included activities like estimating the number of pianos in Chicago
or the number of grains of sand on the beaches of the world. These
labs were designed by a retired professional math who has taught
in Ontario Schools for over 38 years and presented by your favourite
author of EZ Learning Solutions study guides and workbooks.
The directions for these labs recommend the TIPS (Targeted Implementation
& Planning) Think/Pair/Share format on how to complete these
mathematical problemsolving labs. TIPS activities are designed
to include the subjects of math, science, geography, business
and probability while making observations and calculations with
decimals, integers, fractions, percents, rations, algebra and
formulas.
