A myth is an ancient, traditional story about heroes or supernatural beings, often explaining the origins of natural phenomena or aspects of human behavior. Knowledge of the mythology of the Greeks and Romans was at one time considered the hallmark of a person's education.
This course is designed to develop students' scientific literacy through inquiry-based activities that aim to strenghten and encourage critical thinking, problem solving, and analytical skills/abilities. The Grade 10 Science course is intended to provide a broad scientific background and assist students in preparing for more specialized courses in Grade 11 and 12. Students will engage in some hands on experiments using household items, research projects, and also learn about the theories, models, concepts, and principles for each of the science areas/modules listed below:
This course is offered as a bridge between grade eight math and grade nine math. It is the intention of this course to provide ongoing support to the regular math program and provide more opportunities to practice basic mathematical skills.
The course is taught in 6 units. These units are not necessarily taught sequentially and often overlap. Unit 1 focus' on the student as a learner. Unit 2 is called "Smart Math" where the focus is on number recognition and basic math operations, Unit 3 is Problem Solving and considers mathematical soultions to problems posed. Unit 5 looks at technolgy that is useful in mathematics spread sheets and drawing programs. Unit 6 is based on synthesizing information by implementing knowledge in a project.
Throughout this course attention will be paid to developing a sense of confidence the student will have in regards to math and a higher level of numerical as well as language literacy.
