    digestion, circulation, respiration, reproduction
    etc. Students are required to learn and apply a
    considerable amount of course material related to
    biological terms and concepts. This course also

sciences
  • Physics 11
  • This course will introduce concepts of motion,
    forces, momentum energy, waves, and optics.
     There will be an emphasis on understanding
    specific concepts and applying these to solve
    word problems.  Excellent math and problem
    solving skills are essential.
  • Physics 12
  • This course will review topics in motion, forces,
    momentum and energy,and introduce the concept of
    vectors to deal with two-dimensional problems.
    Topics such as electrostatics, electric circuits,
    magnetic fields and electro-magnetic induction
    may be introduced. It is intended to be a more
    specialized course than the general course
    presented in Physics 11. The problem work will be
    more advanced than in previous years and a
    greater proportion of time is spent on theory.
  • Science Technology 12
  • Science Technology 11 offers a fundamental
    understanding of science, technology, society and
    the environment. Major topics include the
    relationships of science, technology and society
    computers, communication systems and information
    technology heavy construction technology space
    technology energy technology and environment
    and biochemical technology and medicine. Students
    are expected to attend classes regularly
    throughout the course to work both individually
    and collaboratively. Student progress will be
    monitored on a constant basis.
