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.
*Students interested in continuing in an honours program must fill in an application. When selecting courses, please select the non-honours version of the course. i.e Science 10. Successful applicants for the honours program will be scheduled appropriately by their counsellor.
The Honours format offers students an opportunity to complete Science 10 in an enriched and varied setting. In this course, there will be opportunity for projects and activities that will focus on individualized learning and engagement. The typical student has a good understanding of learning and is becoming an independent learner able to function well at both individual and group work.
