Grade 9 Math


The first year of high school and the year of changes. Grade 9 is always a complex year for children, dealing with the changes in the high school curriculum and more complex study patterns. This is also the year students make up their minds whether mathematics is going to be their preferred subject or not.


The study of whole numbers and their properties is called Number theory. Number theory is a large and interesting area in mathematics, including studying Prime numbers, rational numbers and so on. Number theory is important because it helps you to understand and master how the numbers function which helps with logical reasoning skills.

Ratios, rates and proportions

A ratio shows the relative sizes of two or more values, in other words a Ratio compares values. A ratio says how much of one thing there is compared to another thing. For example, if there is 1 boy and 3 girls, we can write the ratio like 1:3 (for every 1 boy there are 3 girls.) Ratio, rates and proportion skills are useful to understand the association between two quantities.

“Percent” comes from the Latin Per Centum. The Latin word Centum means 100. When we say Percent, we mean per 100, so 1 percent means 1 per 100. We use the symbol % to show the percent. For example, 50% means 50 per 100. Understanding percentages is important for math skills and real life, for example stores advertise discounts on their products by using percents, like 30% off on math books.

Coordinate plane

The plane containing X axis and Y axis is called coordinate plane. Cartesian coordinated can be used to pinpoint where we are on a map or graph. We can mark a point on a graph by how far along and how far up it is, the point (10,6) is 10 units along and 6 units up. Coordinate plane is exciting and important for learning math and it has important use in real life like mapping an area or arranging furniture in your room.

Systems of linear equations

Two or more equations containing common variables is called the system of equations. A system of equations in which every equation is linear is called system of linear equations. For any linear system, there are three possible outcomes: there is only one solution, there are infinitely solutions or there are no solutions at all. If the number of equations is more than the variables the system is called overdetermined, while if the variables are more than the equations the system is called underdetermined.
