New students to AHS
If you register at AHS and previously were at school outside of Ontario you likely will be asked to complete some math assessments to best determine which math course to select.  You may also be asked to do this if you attended an Ontario school quite some time ago.

The topics on each of the registration math assessments are listed below.  Feel free to watch the videos above to help you prepare for the assessment questions.  The online tools listed above may also be helpful in preparing and they will be useful while you are a student at AHS.  

Assessment 1: whole number and integer calculations, decimal number calculations, order of operations, percent calculations, square roots, ratios, rates, basic fraction calculations, plotting points, perimeter, area.  Sample Questions

Assessment 2: algebra skills such as adding/subtracting/multiplying/dividing, equation solving, exponent rules, graphing an equation of a line, slope and y-intercept, calculations using Sine, Cosine, Tangent, and aspects of quadratics (parabolas) such as x-intercepts, y-intercept, and the equation.  Sample Questions 

Assessment 3: applying algebra skills listed in Assessment 2, applying trigonometric ratios (Sine, Cosine, Tangent), solving the intersection of two lines (substitution or elimination), Cosine Law, Sine Law, factoring quadratics, solving exponential equations, solving simple trigonometric equations, graphing a trigonometric function.  Sample Questions
