Grade 9 :
This course examines the atoms that make up all matter on
Earth, how electricity has been harnessed to operate machinery, how our body
tissues grow and regenerate, and exploration of the stars and planets of our
There are four units: Reproduction, Atoms and Elements. The
Nature of Electricity and Exploring the Universe.
There are lessons, learning activities, assignments and some
hands on experiments. As well as an
inquiry/research project as part of the assessment for the course.
Students deepen their understanding of science
concepts in the following units:
Dynamics of Ecosystems
Chemistry in Action
In Motion (the Physics of Objects in Motion)
units will be done with a variety of presentation methods; hands on lab
experiments and demonstrations as well as workbooks and formal testing.
Students will develop skills for independent learning and play an active role
in achieving their full science potential. In addition, they make links between
science and daily life, and learn to appreciate both the power and limitations
of science as a way of understanding their world.
Grade 11 Biology:
This course examines the key concepts associated with the
structure and function of cells, and applies these concepts to the human
body. The course has sections on
biochemistry, homeostasis and cell structure, then follows with each of the human
body systems. Emphasis is on developing
scientific literacy and critical thinking skills.
Grade 12 Biology:
This is a difficult course. Those who have successfully
completed it have well developed study skills and need to keep up with daily
assignments. It is a content based
curriculum which requires a lot of organization, review and studying of new material.
The two themes are biodiversity and genetics. The student s will have opportunities to
demonstrate their acquired learning skills, attitude and abilities to connect
what they’ve learned with the real-world through an inquiry project.
