This course enables students to enhance their understanding of concepts in biology, chemistry, earth and space science, and physics, and of the interrelationships between science, technology, society, and the environment. Students are also given opportunities to further develop their scientific skills. Students will plan and conduct investigations and develop their understanding of scientific theories related to the connections between cells and systems in animals and plants; chemical reactions, with a particular focus on acid-base reactions; forces that affect climate change; and the interaction of light and matter.
The following learning skills will be taught and assessed throughout the course and will be shown on the report card. Students’ performance in these skill areas will not be included in the final numeric mark. It is important to remember, however, that the development and consistent practice of these skills will influence academic achievement. These skills include:
Assessment and evaluation are based on the provincial expectations and levels of achievement outlined in the provincial curriculum document for each subject in secondary school. A wide range of assessment and evaluation opportunities allows students to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways. This information provides the basis for reporting student grades on the Provincial Report Card. Achievement (reflected in a final mark) will be calculated using the following categories:
The student’s grade for the term marks will be based on the most consistent achievement with emphasis on the most recent within each category.
Students will also receive descriptive feedback as part of the learning process which may not be assigned a mark.
In order to achieve the curriculum expectations, the program is planned to conduct a variety of activities considering the following but not limited to:
Accommodations will be based on meeting with parent, teachers, administration and external educational assessment report. The following three types of accommodations may be provided:
Other examples of modifications and aids, which may be used in this course, are:
Subject binder, stationary set, pen, pencils, eraser, sharpener, ruler, geometry set, lined/grid graph paper, blank paper, scientific calculator.
Every student is expected to respect other students’ right to a safe and supportive learning environment. Students are expected to behave in a considerate and reasonable manner at all times. A “zero tolerance” policy with respect to bullying, threatening, harassment, abusive language, spam, disruptive behavior and lack of respect is in effect and misbehavior may result in your removal from the course.
Students are expected to submit original work. Students who seek to attain academic advantage or help someone else obtain such advantage through cheating will receive a grade of zero. Any assignments submitted that are not original will receive a mark of zero. Students who persist in submitting un-cited or improperly cited assignments may be suspended or withdrawn from the course
