This week, the grade 12 AP physics and grade 11 astronomy students took a tour of University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies. Students attended lectures by various professors on current developments and innovations concerning aircraft design, nano- and micro-satellites, fusion energy and systems modelling.

Complex Imaginations

The grade 12 students explored complex numbers in linear algebra class. They delved into the practicalities of Cartesian, polar, and exponential forms and found interconnections through linear algebra and Taylor series.

Simple Machines

Simple Machines

Grade 11 students examined the physics behind simple machines and systems with multiple simple machines working in tandem. They applied their knowledge by studying objects such as doorstops, knifes, cranes, and wrenches. The students will compose a report on simple machines found in their daily lives.
