10) Probability

Theoretical and Experimental
Probability

2 weeks

11) Geometry &
Spatial Sense

Transformational Geometry
(translation, rotation, reflection,
dilatation)
Plotting points

Proportional Relationships
Ratios & Rates
Relating fractions to decimals to
percents to ratios

Use different base ten blocks to represent
1. (eg. If the flat represents 1, then the rod
represents 0.10, and the unit represents
0.01. If the cube represents 1, then the flat
represents 0.10, and the rod represents
0.01).
Apply the operations of whole numbers and
decimal numbers in the measurement
contexts.
investigations of angle properties and
construction of bisectors.

Teacher Notes
Integrate Integer CLIPs with instruction.
www.mathclips.ca
Reinforce operations of fractions and
integers using concrete materials and
diagrams. Solve for the two types of
percent problems: find percent given the
part and the whole, find the part of the
whole given a percent.

Evaluate expressions and solve equations
involving whole numbers. Use a variety of
contexts for using expressions and solving
equations including measurement and
geometry.
Graph proportional relationships. Connect
linear graphs with proportionality. Write
rate situations as an algebraic expression.
Express probabilities as a fraction, decimal,
percent. Identify the ratio of number of
successes of an event to the number of
trials.
Identify which polygons will tile a plane. Plot
points on the Cartesian plane to create
pictures.
