This week, the grade 11 TOPS students participated in a chemistry activity where they explored the different organic chemistry families. They were provided with clue cards depicting a variety of organic compounds and had the task of identifying reoccurring patterns in each organic family.
Grade 11 Calculus students are learning how to find the net signed area of a curve in a given region. Furthermore, calculus has shown them how to integrate physics and math together to solve position, velocity, and acceleration functions.
This week the grade 11 TOPS students explored the relationship between the concentration and volumes of solutions. They performed a serial dilutions lab which consisted of diluting a solution of copper (II) sulphate pentahydrate in water several times.
Using their newly acquired knowledge of derivatives, the Grade 11 TOPS class is learning how to graph functions more accurately. This includes identifying characteristics such as values of relative maxima and minima, points of inflection, and concavity.
