Moving to one math course

Starting September 2021, there will be one new Grade 9 math course for all students. This means that there will no longer be applied or academic courses for Grade 9 math.

The new course will provide all students with the same learning experience. This is part of Ontario’s four-year math strategy to help students:

  • perform better in math
  • solve everyday math problems
  • be prepared for jobs of the future
