Science

Grade 10
Science 20F (1 Credit) 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. The prerequisite for this course is Science 10F.

Grade 11
Current Topics in the Sciences 30S (1 Credit) CTSR3S
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. The prerequisite for this course is Science 20F.

Current Environmental Topics in Sciences 30S (1 Credit) CTSE3S
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. The prerequisite for this course is Science 20F.

Biology 30S (1 Credit) 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. The prerequisite for this course is Science 20F.

Chemistry 30S (1 Credit) 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. The prerequisite for this course is Science 20F.

Physics 30S (1 Credit) PHYR3S
In the footsteps of the greats—Galileo, Newton and Planck—learn about the science of moving objects, putting objects into motion and the phenomena of sound and light.
Prerequisites: Applied Math 30S (Pre-calculus highly recommended),.


Grade 12
Biology 40S (1 Credit) 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. The prerequisite for this course is Science 20F.

Chemistry 40S (1 Credit) 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. The prerequisite for this course is Chemistry 30S.

Physics 40S (1 Credit) PHYR4S
In the footsteps of even more  greats—Einstein, Tesla, Faraday and Goddard—learn about rocket science, projectile motion, the electromagnetic spectrum and medical physics.
Prerequisites: Applied Math 40S (Pre-calculus highly recommended) and Physics 30S .

Interdisciplinary Topics in Sciences 40S INSR4S
Interdisciplinary Topics in Sciences is a project and skills based course whose content is determined by the students in the course. It is an opportunity for students to further their knowledge and understanding of areas of science that may not be covered by the other traditional sciences. Areas of  study could include (but are not limited to) geology, meteorology, biotechnology, ecology, biomechanics, alternative energy or any other topic students may be interested in. The prerequisite for this course is Science 20F. Current Topics in Sciences 30S, and/or Current Environmental Topics in Sciences are recommended.
