Physics Summatives

After countless hours and sleepless nights, the grade 11 physics class kicked off the week with the very first physics summative presentations. Students prepared seminars on a physics-related topic of their choice. Topics ranged from the physics behind familiar sports such as tennis and curling to the mysteries of dark matter.

Mendelian Inheritance

Grade 11 biology students investigated Mendelian inheritance in corn and learned about genotype ratios for dominant and recessive genes. In this lab, students examined the corn sample’s phenotypes such as colour and texture in order to determine its genotype, and used a chi-squared distribution to test their results.
