Biology 20 and Biology 30 (5 credits each)

Prerequisite: Science 10 / Biology 20 (Recommended 65% or better)

Biology 20–30 is a course in which students further develop their ability to ask questions, investigate and experiment; to gather, analyze and assess scientific information; and to test scientific laws and principles and their applications. Through experimentation, and problem-solving activities that include the integration of technology and independent study, students develop an understanding of the processes by which scientific knowledge evolves.

Chemistry 20 IB (5 credits)

Prerequisite: Science 10 Honours (Recommended 75% or better)

Students are introduced to modules that cover expanded acid base, oxidation-reduction, and energetic section, kinetics, organic and environment chemistry. As well, students will have a minimum of 40 hours of laboratory instruction. This is a laboratory intensive program in which the students gain the skills to succeed at their future university level courses.

Chemistry 30 IB (5 credits)& Chemistry 25 IB (3 credits)

Prerequisite: Chemistry 20 IB (Recommended 75% or better)

Chemistry 25 IB is designed to serve as a bridge between Chemistry 30 and the IB syllabus. In this course, students will study Environmental Chemistry and complete a unit investigating the chemistry of medicines and drugs. Students are required to participate in a group IV project and will learn further skills such as in depth laboratory analysis and the propagation of uncertainties.

Chemistry 20 and Chemistry 30 (5 credits each)

Prerequisite: Science 10 and Chemistry 20 (Recommended 65% or better)

The Chemistry 20-30 program emphasizes the science themes: change, diversity, energy, equilibrium, matter and systems as they relate to chemistry. In addition to developing a solid understanding of fundamental science concepts and principles, Chemistry 20–30 has the goal of educating students about the nature of science and technology, and the interaction between chemistry and technology. Students must be aware of the tremendous impact of chemistry and associated technology on society, but at the same time, they must be aware of the roles and limitations of the chemistry sciences, science in general, and of technology in problem solving in a societal context.

Physics 20 IB and 30 IB and 35 IB (5 credits)

Prerequisite: Science 10 Honours / 20 IB (Recommended 75% or better)
