The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.
The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.
The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.
The Choices series, Choices: Planning for Grade 9 and Choices: Secondary Program Guide, contain important information that will help you understand the concept of destination planning and the importance of knowing your interests and abilities and connecting them to opportunities available during and beyond secondary school.
Choices: Planning for Grade 9 contains information about course types and the diploma requirements. It also explains other relevant opportunities that will be available throughout high school. The Choices: Secondary Program Guide will help you explore the many programs available in TDSB secondary schools.
Course description can be found using the High School Course Search. The course description tells you a bit about what you can expect to learn in that subject. In senior years, it tells you what the prerequisites are (subjects you must have successfully completed). Prerequisites ensure that you are prepared for the course. If the course description does not tell you enough about a course, ask your teacher for as much information as you need in order to make an informed decision about your plan. The myBlueprint Education Planner also has all of this information. myBlueprint Education Planner enables students to build “what-if” course scenarios based on the courses offered at specific secondary schools, visually track progress towards graduation, and instantly reveal the post-secondary opportunities that become available.

Mathematics, Grade 9, Destreamed
This course enables students to consolidate, and continue to develop, an understanding of mathematical concepts related to number sense and operations, algebra, measurement, geometry, data, probability, and financial literacy. Students will use mathematical processes, mathematical modeling, and coding to make sense of the mathematics they are learning and to apply their understanding to culturally responsive and relevant real-world situations. Students will continue to enhance their mathematical reasoning skills, including proportional reasoning, spatial reasoning, and algebraic reasoning, as they solve problems and communicate their thinking.
