Course Description

Science

Science 10 is a hands-on course that lays the groundwork for students to progress to Grade 11 science disciplines. Science 10 provides an overview of the biological, chemical, physical and earth sciences, as well as an awareness of the connections between them. 

This course is also available at the AP level.

Science 14-24

Science 14 and 24 are generalized courses that focus on applying science with hands-on activities and experiments. These courses allow students to meet the science credit requirements for an Alberta High School Diploma.

Science 14/10 Combo

 This unique course begins with a fast-track foundational course (Science 14) that focuses on applying science with hands-on activities and experiments. After the foundational course students will begin Science 10.  The benefit to this combo class that runs full year is that you have more time with the Science 10 curriculum and earn 10 high school credits.

Biology

Biology 20 and 30 focus on the study of living systems through hands-on experiences including dissecting hearts and other specimens and building body maps.

These courses are also available at the AP level.

Chemistry

Chemistry 20 and 30 examine matter and how it interacts on a molecular level. Students will study the properties and reactions of chemicals and learn skills such as titrating acids and measuring the molar mass of butane. 

These courses are also available at the AP level.

Physics

Physics 20 and 30 explore matter and energy through problem solving and lab work in areas including motion, waves, forces and fields. Students will develop skills in using technology to aquire data and spreadsheets for analysis. 

These courses are also available at the AP level.
