Learning will take place in the classroom and outdoors through various day trips and some overnight trips. Students will receive credit for the following courses: Science 10, Math Foundation and Pre-Calculus 10, Physical and Health Education 10, Leadership 10 (see individual course descriptions for more detail). Students will receive a certificate in basic first aid and RCABC basic lake water canoeing solo and tandem. Outdoor activities will include but are not limited to hiking, backpacking, skiing, snowshoeing, and canoeing. Cost of $500 includes costs of some transportation, third-party instruction, camping fees and some equipment rentals. Contact Ms. McArthur at email@example.com for an application.

COURSE CODE: MSC – – 10
COURSE CODE OUTDOOR ED: MSC – – 10OE
The new Science 10 curriculum has been designed around four big ideas:
1. DNA is the basis for the diversity of living things.
2. Energy change is required as atoms rearrange in chemical processes.
3. Energy is conserved, and its transformation can affect living things and the environment.
4. The formation of the universe can be explained by the big bang theory.
The course will use a variety of learning strategies such as laboratory work, projects, inquiry and design and application of innovative technology.
PHYSICAL AND HEALTH EDUCATION 10
COURSE CODE: MPHED10
COURSE CODE OUTDOOR ED: MPHED10OE
This course is a continuation of the PHE 9 course, but more advanced skills and game strategies will be taught. In addition to the PHE 10 curriculum there may also be the opportunity for instruction in rugby, field hockey, tennis, golf, archery and First Aid. During the health component, students will learn about potential short- and long-term consequences of health decisions, including those involving nutrition, protection from sexually transmitted infections, eating habits, exercise patterns and sleep routines.
FOUNDATIONS OF MATHEMATICS AND PRE-CALCULUS 10
COURSE CODE: MFMP-10
COURSE CODE OUTDOOR ED: MFMP-10OE
This option is designed to provide students with the Mathematical understanding and critical-thinking skills identified for post-secondary academic studies at colleges and universities. Topics include prime factorizations and applications, powers involving integral exponents, exponent laws, right triangle trigonometry, polynomials, and coordinate geometry with linear relations and functions, function notation, systems of linear equations, arithmetic sequences and financial literacy. At the end of this course, students are prepared for either Foundations of Mathematics 11 OR Pre-Calculus 11.
