Science ProgramFebruary 5, 2021
*COMPULSORY ACADEMIC CREDITS - 16 CREDITS REQUIRED* SCIENCE
GR. 9 SCIENCE (1 CREDIT)
The goal of the Gr. 9 Science program is to further students' understanding of science concepts in the following units: Reproduction, Atoms and Electricity, Nature of Electricity, Exploring the Universe. Broadening student understanding of the evolution of scientific thinking and knowledge is also part of the course.
GR. 10 SCIENCE (1 CREDIT)
Grade 10 Science program is a Manitoba created curriculum which includes 4 clusters: Dynamics of the Ecosystem, Chemistry in Action, In Motion and Weather Dynamics. Body Systems and Diseases is an additional topic to the above curriculum. Daily assessment is based on assignment quality and completion, participation in a variety of classroom activities including conducting experiments using safe laboratory practices.
GR. 11 BIOLOGY (1 CREDIT)
The goal of grade 11 Biology is for students to gain a deeper understanding of human body systems. We look thoroughly at systems that are essential for human life and discuss what happens if one of those things stops working. By the end of the course students will have a good knowledge of the digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, nervous and immune systems through hands-on scientific inquiries.
GR. 12 BIOLOGY (1 CREDIT)
The goal of grade 12 Biology is to look at what makes humans (and other living things) the way we are. We take an in-depth look at genetics, DNA and evolutionary theory, and use what we have learned to describe how every living thing on the planet has become what it is today.
GR. 11 CHEMISTRY (1 CREDIT)
In grade 11 Chemistry, students will explore the concept of matter and how it interacts with the outside world. Students will explore 5 units; physical properties of matter, gases and the atmosphere, chemical reactions, solutions and organic chemistry. Students will also participate in a variety of labs to explore these concepts.
GR. 12 CHEMISTRY (1 CREDIT)
Grade 12 Chemistry focuses strongly on the behaviour of many different types of chemical reactions. This course will focus on a hands-on approach and have many different laboratory experiments to explore chemical reactions.
