Molecular Models

This week, the grade 11 TOPS students began their chemical bonding unit by building 3D molecular models in class. The students recorded each structure and measured the angles between the bonds. Unique molecular structures such as monosaccharides, disaccharides, polymers, and isomers were also attempted.  

Elements and Chemicals

This week, the grade 9 students continued their chemistry unit with the study of the periodic table. They learned about its structure as well as the relationship between an element’s position and its properties. Students explored metals, nonmetals, metalloids and even atomic orbitals.

Coded Creations

This week, students in the grade 10 ICS course coded graphics using Java. After learning the basics, students experimented with more complex concepts including parameters, perspective, loops and animation. For the concluding assignment, students showcased their skills by coding portrayals of a house and a moon.
