Science 10/14

Science 10-4 K & E provides basic science literacy. This course promotes awareness, understanding and the development and application of science skills, knowledge and attitudes for successful living at home, in the workplace and in the community. Topics include Investigating Properties of Matter, Understanding Energy Transfer Technologies, Investigating Matter and Energy in Living Systems, and Investigating Matter and Energy in Environmental Systems. The principal goal of the Knowledge and Employability science courses is to develop science competencies to assist students becoming contributing members of society and independent and lifelong learners.

Science 14 is an integrated science course that helps students better understand and apply the concepts and skills common to biology, chemistry and physics. It is the first science course for students in the Science 14/24 stream. Science 14 consists of four units of study:  Investigating Properties of Matter, Investigating Matter and Energy in Living Systems, Understanding Energy Transfer Technologies, and Investigating Matter and Energy in the Environment. All the units are designed to integrate relatable life experiences into the learning to allow students to better grasp the content.

Science 10 is an integrated and academic course that helps students better understand and apply the concepts and skills common to Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Climate.  It is the first course leading to the grade eleven courses of Science 20 or Biology, Chemistry, and Physics 20. Science 10 consists of four units of study; Energy and Matter in Chemical Change, Energy Flow in Technological Systems, Cycling of Matter in Living Systems and Energy Flow in Global Systems as well as a brief review of process skills, lab safety, and WHMIS.

Science 10 AP is an integrated and academic course that helps students better understand and apply the concepts and skills common to Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Climate. This course focuses on an accelerated study of the regular science 10 curriculum and includes advanced concepts from the Chemistry 20 and Biology 20 curriculums. The Science 10 curriculum consists of the four units of study mentioned earlier, as well as a brief review of process skills, lab safety, and WHMIS. As students transition from Science 10 AP to selected 20-level AP courses, students will have covered some of the curriculum content of these courses and allow them more time to focus on the AP portion of the 20-level syllabus. This course leads to Biology 20 AP, Chemistry 20 AP, and Physics 20; however enrollment in 20-level AP courses is not mandatory after completion of Science 10 AP.

RT @NickleCBE: Drive by and check out our new trees! Grade 7 Environmental Stewardship class planted 7 trees in front of our school (purchased by EcoClub last year). We are excited to be adding to the biodiversity of our community! #WeAreCBE #getoutside #environmentstewards @NickleParents https://t.co/Lpg5lX8LyH

Thank you to all of the CBE students involved in the safety patrol program. We must all work together to ensure student and pedestrian/wheeler safety on the roads and pathways near our schools. #WeAreCBE https://t.co/QDjFocgZaj
