The grade 12 physics students began their final unit on quantum mechanics, exploring concepts such as quantization, wave-particle duality, and the photoelectric effect. Through this unit, students branched off from the classical physics they had studied and got a glimpse into more modern developments in physics.
Several TOPS students had the opportunity to attend the Economic Club of Canada’s inspiring “The Economics of Equality” talk with Michelle Obama. Topics of discussion included gender equality, social media, and Michelle Obama’s personal life experiences.
The grade 12 physics class has been studying gravitational, electric, and magnetic fields. Through this unit, students have explored concepts such as dark matter, Coulomb’s law, field mapping, magnetism, and various real-world applications associated with them.
The grade 12 physics class has been studying work, energy, and momentum. Students learned about the different types of energy, collisions, and more, unifying concepts they have learned from previous units with new ones.
