Science

science.jpgGRADE 10

 SCIENCE 20F (SCIR2F): A course to develop scientifically literate students using the essential aspects of science. The course has four major clusters: Dynamics of Ecosystems, Chemistry in Action, In Motion and Weather Dynamics.   1 credit

GRADE 11

CURRENT TOPICS 30S (CTSR3S): The Current Topics in Science is a project and skills based course that incorporates and compliments chemistry, biology, physics and many other branches of science. Students will explore current topics in sciences such as forensics, biotechnology, space exploration and many others. The topics covered will be driven by student interest and will change from year to year. Students cannot have credit in both CTSE and CTSR.   1 credit

CURRENT TOPICS IN SCIENCES 30S (CTSE3S): The Current Environmental Topics in Science is a project and skills based course that expands on grade 10 science and geography content. Students will explore current local and global concerns through the lens of sustainability (environment, economy and society). Students will be expected to participate in an action based project and will examine their own role within the issues. Students cannot have credit in both CTSE and CTSR. 1 credit

BIOLOGY 30S (BIOR3S): The Biology 30S course is intended to provide students with an understanding of the major human body systems and how they relate to one another. Students will be expected to participate in various lab activities. This course is recommended for all students who wish to pursue careers in the health sciences.  1 credit

CHEMISTRY 30S (CHER3S): This course covers the basic concepts of chemistry. Topics include: Physical Properties of Matter, Gases and the Atmosphere, Chemical Reactions, Solutions and Organic Chemistry. Students will develop essential laboratory skills.      1 credit

PHYSICS 30S (PHYR3S):   Grade 11 Physics is an introductory course in high school physics. It is a blended course format that combines on-line lessons and assessment tools, as well as class discussions and demonstrations. The emphasis of the course is placed on concrete demonstrations of physical phenomena, conceptual understanding, and application of learned material in measurement, graphical analysis of relationships, and problem solving. Throughout the course balance between conceptual and mathematical aspects of physics is maintained. History and philosophy of science examples are introduced to enrich students’ understanding of physics and develop different patterns of thinking. The content of this course includes four different areas of physics: Waves, Nature of Science, Mechanics, and Fields. 1 credit

GRADE 12

BIOLOGY 40S (BIOR4S): The Biology 40S course is intended for those students who are interested in genetics and biodiversity. Practical labs are a major component of this course. This course is strongly recommended for all students pursuing studies in any of the sciences, as Grade 12 Biology is a required course
for admission to many faculties of science at the Universities. 1 credit

CHEMISTRY 40S (CHER4S): A course for those pursuing a career in science. Topics include: Atomic Structure, Kinetics, Chemical Equilibrium, Acids and Bases, Solubility and Electrochemistry. There will be a focus on investigative chemistry throughout the course. Strong math skills are recommended.  1 credit

PHYSICS 40S (PHYR4S): Grade 12 Physics is a continuation of the grade 11 Physics course. It is a blended course format that combines on-line lessons and assessment tools, as well as class discussions and demonstrations. It focuses on four different areas: Mechanics, Fields, Electricity, and Medical Physics. Students apply their learning in measurement, graphical analysis, problem solving, and developing science research skills.    1 credit
