This week, grade 11 TOPS chemistry classes explored various properties of Copper (II) Sulfate including the relation between the mass and the number of moles in a compound. Coincidentally, this lab took place on October 23, also known as Mole Day!
This week, the grade 11 TOPS classes observed the different types of chemical reactions being put into action through a series of labs. The labs included experiencing the bright light of burning magnesium with oxygen and the colourful reactions after adding different metals to ionic compounds.
This week, students in the Grade 12 Robotics course worked on polishing their basic programming skills in C++, finishing off the unit with functions and arrays. They will soon begin to delve into the realm of hardware and begin wiring circuits.
Grade 11 students have learned about the chain rule, the derivative of trigonometric functions and implicit functions. Now, by studying the differentiation of logarithmic equations, they are able to expand their spectrum of mathematical knowledge.
