Courses

A minimum enrolment of six students is required for a course to run.

GRADE 9:

  • Principles of Mathematics (MPM1D)
    Prerequisite: Grade 8 Math

    This course enables students to develop an understanding of mathematical concepts related to algebra, analytic geometry, and measurement and geometry through investigation, the effective use of technology, and abstract reasoning. Students will investigate relationships, which they will then generalize as equations of lines, and will determine the connections between different representations of a linear relation. They will also explore relationships that emerge from the measurement of three-dimensional figures and two-dimensional shapes. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.

GRADE 10:

  • Canadian History Since World War I (CHC2D)
    Prerequisite: None

    This course explores social, economic, and political developments and events and their impact on the lives of different groups in Canada since 1914. Students will examine the role of conflict and cooperation in Canadian society, Canada’s evolving role within the global community, and the impact of various individuals, organizations, and events on Canadian identity, citizenship, and heritage. They will develop their ability to apply the concepts of historical thinking and the historical inquiry process, including the interpretation and analysis of evidence, when investigating key issues and events in Canadian history since 1914.
  • Principles of Mathematics (MPM2D)
    Prerequisite: Principles of Mathematics, Grade 9 (MPM1D)

    This course enables students to broaden their understanding of relationships and extend their problem-solving and algebraic skills through investigation, the effective use of technology, and abstract reasoning. Students will explore quadratic relations and their applications; solve and apply linear systems; verify properties of geometric figures using analytic geometry; and investigate the trigonometry of right and acute triangles. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.
  • Science (SNC2D)
    Prerequisite: Science, Grade 9 (SNC1D)

    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 investigation 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 and climate change; and the interaction of light and matter, and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.

GRADE 11:

  • Functions (MCR3U)
    Prerequisite: Principles of Mathematics, Grade 10 (MPM2D)

    This course introduces the mathematical concept of the function by extending students' experiences with linear and quadratic relations. Students will investigate properties of discrete and continuous functions, including trigonometric and exponential functions; represent functions numerically, algebraically, and graphically; solve problems involving applications of functions; investigate inverse functions; and develop facility in determining equivalent algebraic expressions. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.
  • Chemistry (SCH3U)
    Prerequisite: Science, Grade 10 (SNC2D) 

    This course focuses on the concepts and theories that form the basis of modern chemistry. Students will study the behaviours of solids, liquids, gases, and solutions; investigate changes and relationships in chemical systems; and explore how chemistry is used in developing new products and processes that affect our lives and our environment. Emphasis will also be placed on the importance of chemistry in other branches of science.

GRADE 12:

  • Canadian and International Law (CLN4Ue) **This is an online eLearning Consortium Course** Prerequisite: Any university or university/college preparation course in Canadian and world studies, English, or social sciences and humanities

    This course examines elements of Canadian and international law in social, political, and global contexts. Students will study the historical and philisophical sources of law and the principles and practices of internatiional law and will learn to relate them to issues in Canadian society and the wider world. Students will use crittical-thinking and communication skills to analyse legal issues, conduct independant reserach, and present the results of their inquiries in a variety of ways.
  • Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U)
    Prerequisite: Advanced Functions, Grade 12 (MHF4U)

    This course builds on students' previous experience with functions and their developing understanding of rates of change. Students will solve problems involving geometric and algebraic representations of vectors and representations of lines and planes in three-dimensional space; broaden their understanding of rates of change to include the derivatives of polynomial, sinusoidal, exponential, rational, and radical functions; and apply these concepts and skills to the modeling of real-world relationships. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics. This course is intended for students who choose to pursue careers in fields such as science, engineering, economics, and some areas of business, including those students who will be required to take a university-level calculus, linear algebra, or physics course.

  • Advanced Functions (MHF4U) 
    Prerequisite: Functions, grade 11 (MCR3U) or Mathematics for College Technology, grade 12 (MCT4C)

    This course extends students' experience with functions. Students will investigate the properties of polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; develop techniques for combining functions; broaden their understanding of rates of change; and develop facility in applying these concepts and skills. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics. This course is intended both for students taking the Calculus & Vectors course as a prerequisite for a university program and for those wishing to consolidate their understanding of mathematics before proceeding to any one of a variety of university programs.
