This week, grade eleven students rediscover cell theory as they delve into the details of biology. Before heading into more complex topics, students focus on the finer details by taking a look at cellular structure and behaviour on a molecular level.
This week, the grade elevens begin data collection for Lab 0 of Mr. van Bemmel’s Physics course. By measuring wooden block and metal cylinders with different tools, students learn about working with uncertainty, reading error, and standard deviation.
This week, grade 11 TOPS chemistry students analyzed the three degrees of saturation when a solute is dissolved in a given amount of solvent. Students were delighted to watch the crystal formation after small particles of sodium thiosulfate were added to a supersaturated solution.
The Stoichiometry unit in the Grade 11 TOPS Chemistry classes finished off with an entertaining assignment. Students were asked to creatively present methods by which fictional unknown elements were discovered. This led to many insightful ideas, and a lot of laughter in the room!
