Sketching Curves

Grade 11 Photo - Nov 15

The grade 11 calculus class began their unit on curve sketching. Using prior knowledge of derivatives, students can now sketch more accurate graphs by identifying characteristics such as relative maximums and minimums, concavity, and intercepts.

Limiting Reagents

The grade 11 chemistry class learned about limiting reagents by comparing chemical products to banana splits. By observing how the products of a reaction are limited by the reagent that runs out first (like the bananas), students made their way through challenging chemistry problems—and of course, a perfectly balanced banana split.  

Marvelous Moles

The grade 11 chemistry class began their unit on moles. Students explored different concepts and equations through the completion of a mystery assignment where they used knowledge learned in class to identify different formulas, as well as through multiple in-class labs.

Mind over Matter

The grade 11 chemistry class attended an interactive presentation on mental health and wellbeing at the Ontario Science Center. Using various experiments and dissections, the show discussed the growing pandemic of stress within teens, the biological effects of anxiety, and ended with a consolation lecture on methods to cope.
