Physics 20 (5 credits)

Prerequisite Recommendation:  65% or greater in Science 10 and Math 10C. Co-requisite Math 20-1

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 topics 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)

Prerequisite Recommendation:  65% or greater in Physics 20 and Math 20-1. 

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 topics 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.

Earlier this afternoon Chief Superintendent Christopher Usih and Dr. Kent Donlevy presented the results of the independent bullying review https://t.co/eDEeG0t6tA #yycbe https://t.co/wtmXAfoF2c

There are no classes for students on Friday Oct 11 because it is a system-wide non-instructional day. All schools and offices are closed on Monday Oct 14 for Thanksgiving. Have a fun and safe long weekend! #WeAreCBE https://t.co/bDHlmyqQn6

RT @UsihChristopher: Principals create conditions for student success and well-being. Supported by Education Directors, in our School Support Model, #WeAreCBE principals play a critical role in school improvement by working closely with staff, Ss, parents and community. #leaders

Students & staff at Captain Nichola Goddard School are doing the Green Commuting Challenge School. By changing their commuting habits they have not only reduced traffic but have become more active citizens and reduced their carbon footprint https://t.co/RgwQXOSFHr #WeAreCBE https://t.co/ynlovLjOQP

Due to the weather conditions, some sr. high athletics events may be cancelled this evening. All other activities, jr. high athletics and regularly scheduled events will run as normal, unless you are notified by your school. CBE buildings will remain open as scheduled. #yycbe
