Biology 20 / 30

Biology is the study of life and living systems from the molecular level to the biosphere. Through the study of biology, learners are given an opportunity to explore and understand the natural world and to become aware of the profound influence of biology in their lives. Successful completion of Science 10 and Biology 20 with marks higher than 65% are recommended for continued and successful advancement through this program. Biology is compulsory for entrance into Biological Sciences.

Biology HL

This process-oriented course fosters self-motivation and time management and is enriched by concrete learning activities and field trips to the U of C Forestry Research Station in Kananaskis Country at Barrier Lake and a Biotechnology workshop at the Heritage Research Centre. Students will enroll in Science 10H in grade 10, Biology 20IB in grade 11 and Biology 30/35 IB (full year) in grade 12. The IB and Alberta Diploma exams are written in May and June respectively of the grade 12 year. IB Internal Assessment includes 60 hours of lab work including an interdisciplinary research project (Group 4 Project) with Chemistry and Physics students.

Chemistry 20 / 30

Chemistry deals with the composition, structure and properties of substances and of the transformations that they undergo. Successful completion of Science 10 and Chemistry 20 with marks higher than 65% are recommended for continued and successful advancement through this program. Chemistry is compulsory for entrance into Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Geology and Geophysics and Physics and Astronomy.

Chemistry SL

In Chemistry SL many topics are covered in greater detail and in addition to the Alberta Curriculum. For example, Organic Chemistry is studied in great detail and is especially important to students preparing for studies in the medical field. Students will need to take Science 10H in grade10 and Chemistry 20/30IB in grade 11. IB exams and the Alberta Diploma are written in May and June of the grade 11 year. Internal Assessment includes 40 hours of lab work and an interdisciplinary research project (Group 4 Project) with Physics and Biology students.

Physics 20 / 30

Physics deals with matter and energy and their interactions in the fields of mechanics, acoustics, optics heat electricity, magnetism, radiation, atomic structure and nuclear phenomena. Successful completion of Science 10 and Physics 20 with marks higher than 65% are recommended for continued and successful advancement through this program. Physics is compulsory for entrance Engineering and Biomechanics (Kinesiology) and is recommended for entrance into Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Geology and Geophysics, Applied Mathematics and Physics and Astronomy.

Physics HL

The Physics curriculum covers additional topics and to a greater depth than the Alberta Physics program, better preparing students for university physics and engineering courses. There is a major hands-on component where students explore many of the classical Physics topics. Students must complete Science 10H in grade 10, Physics 20IB in grade 11, and Physics 30/35IB (full year) in grade 12. The IB and Alberta Diploma exams are written in May and June respectively of the grade 12 year. IB Internal Assessment includes 60 hours of lab work including an interdisciplinary research project (Group 4 Project) with Biology and Chemistry students.

Science 10

An integrated academic course that helps students better understand and apply fundamental concepts and skills common to biology, chemistry, physics and the Earth sciences. This course is taken by all Grade 10 students (not entering the IB program) and is a prerequisite for the 20-level science courses.

Science 10H

This is a general science course that covers the Alberta Science 10 curriculum at an advanced pace. There are several enriched components for each of the major subject areas as it is a course selected by students intending on entering the IB science program in grade 11. Students need a minimum 80% in Science 10H for entrance into any of the IB sciences.

Science 14 / 24

General science program that helps students better understand and apply fundamental concepts and skills common to biology, chemistry, physics and environmental science. This program will allow students to meet the credit requirements for a high school diploma.

Science 20 / 30

Successful completion of Science 10 is a prerequisite for entrance into this program. This is an integrated academic science program that helps students better understand and apply fundamental concepts and skills common to biology, chemistry, physics and the Earth sciences. This program is intended for non-science related post-secondary entrance into college or university.
