Curriculum Guide

There are four core units in Science 10 which provides a background for the future senior science classes.

Unit 1 - Chemical Reactions

Chemical Reactions provides an excellent preparation for senior chemistry classes exploring types of reactions, the periodic table, chemical equations, and acid/base theory.

Unit 2 - Climate and Ecosystem Dynamics

Climate and Ecosystem Dynamics explores human impact and sustainability, earth's climate systems, biodiversity, and Biogeochemical Cycles.

Unit 3 - Force and Motion in Our World

Force and Motion in Our World explores the analysis of motion and different forces and their effects on motion. Investigating a car crash, students will put the knowledge gained in the unit to determine the cause of the crash and defend their position using scientific evidence.

Unit 4 - Career Investigation

Career Investigation takes the student through the myBlueprint program and explores science careers and many more based on their personality, motivations, knowledge, and learning styles. Creating a portfolio helps guide the student to possible careers via a variety of methods such as work force, apprenticeships, college, or university.
