Biology, Grade 12, University Preparation - SBI4U1
This course provides students with the opportunity for in-depth study of the concepts and processes associated with biological systems. Students will study theory and conduct investigations in the areas of metabolic processes, molecular genetics, homeostasis, biochemistry, and population dynamics. Emphasis will be placed on achievement of the detailed knowledge and refined skills needed for further study in various branches of the life sciences and related fields.
Prerequisite: Biology, Grade 11, University Preparation.
Grade 11 Academic Chemistry SCH 3U1 is strongly recommended.
Chemistry, College Preparation, Grade 12 - SCH4C1
This course enables students to develop an understanding of chemistry through the study of matter and qualitative analysis, organic chemistry, electrochemistry, chemical calculations, and chemistry as it relates to the quality of the environment. Students will use a variety of laboratory techniques, develop skills in data collection and scientific analysis, and communicate scientific information using appropriate terminology. Emphasis will be placed on the role of chemistry in daily life and the effects of technological applications and processes on society and the environment. Students interested in a career in a laboratory environment requiring a technologist diploma should consider this course.
Prerequisite: Science, Grade 10, Academic or Applied
Chemistry, Grade 12, University Preparation - SCH4U1
This course enables students to deepen their understanding of chemistry through the study of organic chemistry, energy changes and rates of reaction, chemical systems and equilibrium, electrochemistry, and atomic and molecular structure. Students will further develop problem-solving and laboratory skills as they investigate chemical processes, at the same time refining their ability to communicate scientific information.
Prerequisite: Chemistry, Grade 11, University Preparation
It is the prerequisite for post-secondary science programs
Physics, Grade 12, College Preparation - SPH4C1
This course develops students’ understanding of the basic concepts of physics. Students will explore these concepts as they relate to mechanical, electrical, fluid (hydraulic and pneumatic), and communications systems, as well as to the operation of commonly used tools and equipment. They will develop scientific inquiry skills as they verify accepted laws of physics and solve both assigned problems and those emerging from their investigations. Students will also consider the impact of technological applications of physics on society and the environment.
Prerequisite: Science, Grade 10, Academic or Applied. Grade 10 academic math MPM 2D1 or applied math MFM 2P1 credit recommended.
Physics, Grade 12, University Preparation - SPH4U1
This course enables students to deepen their understanding of the concepts and theories of physics. Students will explore further the laws of dynamics and energy transformations, and will investigate electrical, gravitational, and magnetic fields; electromagnetic radiation; and the interface between energy and matter. They will further develop inquiry skills, learning; for example, how the interpretation of experimental data can provide indirect evidence to support the development of a scientific model. Students will also consider the impact on society and the environment of technological applications of physics.
Prerequisite: Physics, Grade 11, University Preparation. MCR3U1 or MCF3M1 recommended.
