This week, the grade 11 TOPS classes observed the different types of chemical reactions being put into action through a series of labs. The labs included experiencing the bright light of burning magnesium with oxygen and the colourful reactions after adding different metals to ionic compounds.
This week, the grade 10 Computer Science class was introduced to looping structures in Java. After they experimented with the “while”, “for”, and “do while” looping mechanisms by completing various puzzles, the students implemented the concepts in basic Graphical User Interface animations.
This week, students in the Grade 12 Robotics course worked on polishing their basic programming skills in C++, finishing off the unit with functions and arrays. They will soon begin to delve into the realm of hardware and begin wiring circuits.
Grade 11 students have learned about the chain rule, the derivative of trigonometric functions and implicit functions. Now, by studying the differentiation of logarithmic equations, they are able to expand their spectrum of mathematical knowledge.
