Theory of Knowledge


Prerequisite – Acceptance into the IB Program

Biology 25 IB - 3 credits

Prerequisite: Science 10
This course continues the biology section of Science 10. Topics that are studied may include: an in-depth study of cells and cell processes, cell division and nutrients. As well, the course introduces the statistics needed for IB science classes. This course is a prerequisite for Biology 20/30 IB SL.

Business Management Intro IB - 3 credits

Suggested course: Financial Management 101
Students will identify basic management and marketing concepts, explore organizational structures, management theories, the nature of business, organizational planning and decision making, growth and the impact of globalization, and the management of change.

Computing Science 10 & 20 - 3 credits each

These are not IB courses, but are prerequisite for Computing Science IB.
We can add the descriptors from the other section of the course descriptions since they are not IB courses.

Mathematics 20 IB - 5 credits

Prerequisite: Math 10 Candidate
Students will study an enriched and extended presentation of the Math 20-1 curriculum. This course is taken in the second semester of the grade ten year. Therefore candidates must take Math 10 Candidate in the first semester. Continuation in IB Mathematics SL or movement into IB mathematics HL will occur in consultation with Mathematics IB teachers at the end of 20IB and the beginning of 30IB.

Physics 25 IB - 5 credits

Prerequisite: Science 10
Students will study an enriched presentation of various topics covered in regular Physics 20, such as: the scientific process and measurement with uncertainties, and kinematics and dynamics in one and two dimensions. This course is a prerequisite for Physics 20 IB. Math 20 IB is strongly recommended for the Physics IB program, as the sequence of topics in the Math IB program more closely matches the needs of the Physics IB SL program.
