REMINDER: To University-bound students to complete and submit their 101 application before the January 15th /20 deadline.
It’s January and students are beginning to prepare for final assessments and exams. BOOST is a great way to review the material from Advanced Functions 4U. BOOST covers every topic in the Advanced Functions course and students can choose any of them and watch the short video lessons, or do the practice questions (with video solutions ) or work on some of the tricky problems that come with each of the lessons. It is a very efficient way to look back at concepts and problems from the course that need refreshing. Students can sign up for just 1 month for only $30. If they sign up this week they can use it right through the exam period. Go to: https://www.boostmath.ca/
