Grade 11 Photo - Apr 4

The grade 11 TOPS class finished and presented their biology storybooks. For the past few weeks, students have been working on storybooks that explain a particular subject in biology such as viruses, bacteria, and protists. They then presented their storybooks to elementary school students at Thorncliffe Park Public School.

Planting Investigation

Grade 11 Photo - Feb 28

The grade 11 biology class finished their studies on plants. To apply their knowledge, students began a research project focused on investigating a certain characteristic of plants and looking at factors that may affect it. Students will carry out experiments to analyse the chosen factor and present it in a formal lab report.

Pine Crest in Winter

School Life Photo - Feb 7

The grade 11 TOPS students revisited YMCA Camp Pine Crest where they were able to relax after a demanding first semester of calculus, chemistry, and other courses. There, students participated in many winter activities such as cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and quinzhee building. The students had a great experience and are now ready to take on the second semester.

Titration Investigation

The grade 11 chemistry class performed multiple labs involving titrations. By titrating a base into an acid with unknown concentration, students were able to perform calculations to determine the acid molarity by using a pH indicator. This knowledge allows them to understand other titration concepts such as serial dilutions.
