Diploma & Grade 9 Math PAT exam prep courses

Diploma and Grade 9 Mathematics PAT exam preparation courses
Posted on 05/03/2024

We want to help students be as prepared as possible for important exams this June. Aspen View Public Schools has arranged an offering of exam preparatory courses for both 30-level diploma courses and the Grade 9 Mathematics Provincial Achievement Test (PAT).

Through Castle Rock Research, students may wish to enrol in online, synchronous exam preparation courses this May and June. Castle Rock is an Alberta-based company that produces print and digital study guides, including The Key and SOLARO, which many schools and students in our district have used.

Courses Available

The Excelerator: 30-level Diploma Exam Preparation Courses – Cost is $45 per course, with Aspen View subsidizing $55 per course (total course cost is $100)

  • Mathematics 30-2
  • Chemistry 30
  • Biology 30
  • Physics 30
  • Science 30

This Excelerator course will provide Grade 9 students targeted review and practice for the Grade 9 Math PAT exam. There will be six 2-hour sessions to prepare for this two-part exam, which will be given to all grade 9 students on June 11 and 18.

Course Structure and Technology Requirements

  • The courses will be online and synchronous, using Google Classroom as the platform.
  • Students will need to be registered with a personal Google email account which is not the same as their school email account.
  • Prior to the start of the courses, the student will receive an email from their Excelerator course teacher (or teachers if enrolled in multiple courses) inviting them to the Google Classroom and will be provided with login details for the SOLARO Excelerator course(s).
  • Each student needs access to a computer since the courses will be conducted online.
  • All sessions will be recorded so any student that misses a scheduled session can catch up by reviewing the recording.
