We will be using the new curriculum, which was finalized this year. The Big Ideas are

Probabilistic thinking informs decision making in situations involving chance and uncertainty.

Modelling data requires an understanding of a variety of functions.

Mathematical analysis informs financial decisions.

Through explorations of spatial relationships, we can develop a geometrical appreciation of the world around us.
