Science 10 (5 credits)

Prerequisite Recommendation:  2/4 or more in Grade 9 Science

This academic course provides students with a unified view of the biological, chemical, physical and earth sciences and an awareness of the connections among them.

The four topics covered are:

  • Energy and Matter in Chemical Change
  • Energy Flow in Technological Systems
  • Cycling of Matter in Living Systems
  • Energy Flow in Global Systems

Laboratory work will reinforce the theoretical concepts

Note: Science 10 is the prerequisite for all academic sciences. 


Science 20 (5 credits)

Prerequisite Recommendation: 60% or more in Science 10 or Teacher Recommendation

This academic program is designed for the student who is interested in science but does not require specific courses in biology, chemistry or physics for post-secondary education. This program integrates concepts related to physical, biological and Earth sciences

The four topics covered are:

  • Chemical Changes
  • Changes in Motion
  • The Changing Earth
  • Changes in Living Systems

Laboratory work will reinforce the theoretical concepts


Science 30 (5 credits)

Prerequisite Recommendation: Greater than 65% in Science 20, or Chemistry 20 and Physics 20.

This academic program is designed for the student who is interested in science but does not require specific courses in biology, chemistry or physics for post-secondary education. This program integrates concepts related to physical, biological and Earth sciences.

The four topics covered are:

  • Living Systems Respond to their Environment
  • Chemistry and the Environment
  • Electromagnetic Energy
  • Energy and the Environment

Laboratory work will reinforce the theoretical concepts

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