This week, grade 11 Biology students learned about the thought process behind Darwin’s natural selection theory and the evolution theories that preceded it by watching videos and animations and engaging in group discussions. The investigation will end with a trip to the Toronto Zoo!
After a month of analyzing TED Talks, grade 11 English students are reflecting on what they had learned with a personal response. Students have participated in writing workshops, peer reviewed, and are now polishing up their pieces on a diverse range of intriguing topics.
Grade 11 Physics students applied their knowledge of rectilinear motion this week in an interactive lab where they measured and calculated the velocity and acceleration of a car model. They conducted the experiment with ticker timers, an apparatus used to measure time.
The Grade 11’s were lucky enough to have Professors Krieger, Kushner, and Morris from the University of Toronto physics department come in and talk about their research and projects. Students listened eagerly as topics from particle physics to patterns in nature were discussed and demonstrated.
