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.

RT @UsihChristopher: Had a terrific visit with students and staff at A E Cross School! The school offers regular Gr. 7-9 programming as well as Spanish Bilingual. Thanks to Principal Brandy Yee, AP Rhonda Williams & entire staff for supporting rich learning and well-being! #WeAreCBE https://t.co/Xn3v730PDr

We’re doing important system maintenance that will make many of our websites unavailable for a short time this evening. The outage is planned for 8 – 10 pm https://t.co/URvTxvTG3i #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/L57aJqJGkJ

Earlier this week the talented students in the PVA Chamber Choir from @cmhsrams gave a delightful performance before the public board meeting #WeAreCBE https://t.co/q1kAYs8BYQ
