Gr.10 Science

In Gr.10 Science, the course branches off into the 3 main science streams; physics (motion unit), chemistry (matter), and biology (ecology).  To conclude the science 10 course, an unit on weather is included to stir up interests from students.

The keys to success in science 10 are to come to class, participate, and complete your work. The gr.10 science course is designed to provide an overview of the 3 main science branches so it is possible to do well in the course as long as the above 3 keys are followed. The topics skim the surface of each of the subjects, and require mathematical skills along with analytical data skills.
