Physics 20 (5 Credits)

This highly academic program is designed to study matter and energy and their interactions. This program emphasizes the context of science by considering the interrelationship among science, technology and society. Physics 20 & 30 helps students understand the physics principles behind the natural events they experience and the technology they use in their daily lives.

The four units of study covered are:

  • Kinematics
  • Dynamics
  • Circular Motion, Work and Energy
  • Oscillatory Motion and Mechanical Waves

Laboratory work will reinforce the theoretical concepts

Physics 30 (5 credits)

This academic program is designed to study matter and energy and their interactions. This program emphasizes the context of science by considering the interrelationship among science, technology and society. Physics 20 & 30 helps students understand the physics principles behind the natural events they experience and the technology they use in their daily lives.

The four units of study covered are:

    • Momentum and Impulse
    • Forces and Fields
    • Electromagnetic Radiation
    • Atomic Physics

    Laboratory work will reinforce the theoretical concepts

    Note:  Completion of Physics 30 requires the writing of a provincial diploma examination and this course is a prerequisite for many science based programs at post-secondary institutions.

      RT @UsihChristopher: Hundreds of staff in attendance at the CBE Staff Association Convention at Centennial High School. Thank you Chair Dennis & SAA Directors for your support! #WeAreCBE https://t.co/YoGdDNlKvb

      We wish all of our teachers and support staff a wonderful two days of enrichment at your annual conventions! #WeAreCBE #CCTCA2020

      Our schools are closed Thursday and Friday for Teachers’ Convention and Monday for Family Day. Have a fun and safe, extra-long weekend! Classes resume on Tuesday Feb 18 #WeAreCBE https://t.co/WDfzc1Co8E

      RT @JackJamesHS: Student success is our priority. So proud of our students who presented to the @yyCBEdu Board of Trustees & shared their stories. Skill development in CTS & transitions to the workforce is an important focus of our school-teachers & students work as a team for student success https://t.co/ctdsij089x

      Join us for the Board of Trustees public meeting today at noon at the Ed Centre or stream the meeting online https://t.co/ISGJKlRlO8 #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/5URQ074n58
