The grade 11 English class analyzed a short story flash fiction involving themes of innate knowledge versus acquired learning. The students formed groups and compiled their own list of “things to know”. To present their ideas, each group had to perform a choral reading in which symbolism, volume, posture, and positioning were used to convey the message.
The grade 11 calculus students worked on applying definite integration. They solved problems involving work and the area between curves and also used Riemann sums to calculate volumes revolving around curves using disks, washers, and cylindrical shells. Knowledge of these applications will see definite use in future subjects.
The grade 11 chemistry class covered an expansive unit on gases, involving stoichiometry, unit conversions, and calculations. They conducted a series of mini-labs that delved into the properties and relationships of pressure, temperature, and volume. Finally, the students synthesized these concepts through a culminating lab that involved producing a gas and applying laws and conversions to find various measurements.
