Science 10  (5 credits)

Prerequisite Standard:  65% or more in Grade 9 Science. 

Content:  Science 10 provides first year high school studies in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.  There are 4 units which all include

  • Energy Flow in Technological Systems 
  • Cycling of Matter in Living Systems 
  • Energy Flow in Global Systems.

Science 20   (5 credits)

Prerequisite Standard : Science 10 65% or >80% in Science 24.

Success in this course will lead to: Science 30 (This academic course is designed for students who will not be pursuing Science programs at the university level.)
Content:

  • The changing earth - Geology 
  • Changes in living systems - Ecosystems 
  • Chemical changes - Chemistry 
  • Changes in motion - Physics 
  • Each unit in Science 20 uses a different context to identify common patterns of change and to investigate the processes by which natural entities and systems are modified over time

Science 30 ( 5 credits)

Prerequisite Standard: Science 20- 65% or Chemistry 20, Physic 20.

Success in this course will lead to: an entrance requirement for many post-secondary programs
Content:

  • Living systems respond to their environment - Biology 
  • Chemistry in the environment - Chemistry 
  • Electromagnetic energy - Physics 
  • Energy and the environment - Current and alternative energy sources 
  • The themes of “systems” and “energy” run through all the units of Science 30. The components of a system influence each other not only by transfer of energy but also by transfer of information
