out why certain everyday optical phenomena actually occur. Hands-on activities include the use of microscopes, safe handling of biological material, chemicals and apparatus and manipulation of optical devices. Prerequisite: SNC1D – Science, Grade 9, Academic or SNC1P – Science, Grade 9, Applied

All around us, the physical world is in constant motion: pole vaulters sail through the air, the Earth whips through space at 30 kilometres a second going around the sun, and even tiny electrons jump through the air when you touch a metal doorknob in winter. In this course, we begin the task of finding and understanding patterns in these motions, aiming to make sense of what nature shows us and finding, along the way, that mathematics is just another way of expressing these relationships. The application of this knowledge produces the technology all around us, which affects our lives, society and the environment. The course will take us through the following topics: • Kinematics or “How do things move?” • Forces or “Why do things bother to move to begin with?!” • Energy or “We all think we have it, but we keep wanting more—a double-edged problem for society?“ • Electricity and Magnetism or “Why do electrons in wires make my hairdryer work and what could this possibly have to do with a magnet anyway?!” • Waves and Sound or “Why does something bumping way over there make a noise in my ears way over here?” Prerequisite: SNC2D – Science, Grade 10, Academic SVN3Me – Environmental Science eLearning, Grade 11, University/College 1 CREDIT Grade 11 Environmental Science appeals to students who want to continue learning about their environment and its relationship to society, human health, pollution and our use of resources. It is taught online, so there is an expectation that students are good at time management and enjoy using technology. Students work online with their classmates from across Ontario. Students have access to live interaction with teacher and classmates in a virtual classroom environment. Assessment tools include online presentations, written lab reports, independent research projects, production of short videos and voice recordings, conversations, and observation. This course is not a prerequisite for Grade 12 Biology, Chemistry or Physics. Prerequisite: SNC2D – Science, Grade 10, Academic

GRADE 11 SBI3U – Biology, Grade 11, University Preparation 1 CREDIT

The Grade 11 Biology course touches on many different aspects of the biological sciences from the sub-cellular level, including learning about DNA and genes, to larger topics such as the various ways in which living organisms are classified. You will study the diversity of living things, genetics, evolution and plant and animal structures. The course will require you to use an advanced-level textbook, which is supported with comprehensive course notes. Furthermore, there are also many exciting activities built into learning such as multimedia options, including videos, online tutorials and computer simulations, as well hands on labs and dissections. Assessments are extremely varied in the form of laboratory investigations and simulations, oral and visual presentations, individual and group projects and unit tests. It is an interesting course focused on the big ideas of biology—evolution as a unifying principle, structure and function and balance in and among living organisms. Prerequisite: SNC2D – Science, Grade 10, Academic SCH3U – Grade 11 Introduction to Chemistry, Grade 11, University Preparation Have you ever had an existential moment where you look at a glass of water and wonder: Why do ice cubes float? Why does water evaporate? Why does water exist everywhere? Why don’t I melt like the wicked witch when I drink water? Chemists too ponder these questions and use models to understand the behaviour of matter. In this course you will be amazed by the patterns in the behaviour of solids, liquids, gases and solutions both theoretically and in the physical realm. You will develop explanations for these observations of the world, perfect precise lab techniques to quantify and qualify matter, and discover new functions on the TI-83. Program content: Unit 1 Matter, Chemical Trends and Chemical Bonding; Unit 2 Chemical Reactions; Unit 3 Quantities in Chemical Reactions; Unit 4 Solutions and Solubility; Unit 5 Gases and Atmospheric Chemistry; Unit 6 Scientific Investigation Skills and Career Exploration (Integrated).
