Science


In high school science courses, you focus on interconnected ideas and principles, such as
change, diversity and energy. You develop scientific knowledge through collecting,
analyzing and interpreting experimental evidence. Additionally, you make connections
among science, technology and society. You continue to develop your sense of wonder
about the natural world.

Credits: The following Science courses are 5 credits.

Prerequisites:
 50% minimum is required to progress to the next level in a sequence
 see Appendix B for details about transfers between course sequences


Diploma Path | 10, 20, 30 Course Sequences

Science 10
 introduces biology, chemistry, physics and global energy systems
 allows you to choose from Biology, Chemistry, Physics and/or Science at the 20-level,
depending on your interests, abilities and goals

Science 20, 30
 extend the application of biological, chemical, physical and earth sciences in Science 20
and apply them to current world scenarios
 analyze interactions in biological, chemical, physical and global energy systems in

Science 30
 enhance scientific literacy and prepare you for post-secondary programs*
 Important | Biology 20, Chemistry 20, Physics 20 or Science 20 can be used as a
prerequisite to Science 30

Biology 20, 30
 engage in examining interactions of living systems with each other and their
environment
 Biology 20 emphasizes energy and matter exchange
 Biology 30 focuses on adaptation and change in biological systems
 enhance scientific literacy and prepare you for post-secondary programs*

Chemistry 20, 30
 engage with the study of matter and its changes in the natural and industrial worlds
 enhance scientific literacy and prepare you for post-secondary programs*

Physics 20, 30
 engage in the exploration and analysis of the interactions between matter and energy
 understand the physics behind natural events and technology
 enhance scientific literacy and prepare you for post-secondary programs*
