A Shocking Lab

It’s time for another lab! We started our 4th lab on AC current and electromagnetism for grade 12 AP physics this week. As part of the lab, we have to construct circuits and analyze data collected by voltmeters and oscilloscopes. We will write a six-page lab paper based on our findings from this data.

King Lear

From prose and poetry to madness and insanity, many themes prevail in King Lear, which we are studying in grade 12 English class. Arguably one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, we watched different renditions of the play and will be submitting an analysis next week. We will also discuss relevant themes and characters in a fishbowl seminar.

Map of Canada

Students in Ms. Scholl’s grade 12 English class learned about Canada’s Indigenous people and the struggles that they face by studying texts that describe the issues experienced by the Indigenous community. The class connected their studies to Canada’s geography through a giant map labelled with important Indigenous landmarks, routes and history.

Crazy Circuits

In groups of four and five, the grade 12 AP physics students executed self-designed experiments to test the properties of diodes, transistors, and capacitors. They constructed circuits to measure the electrical potential and current at a desired semiconductor. Students attended lectures about semiconductors to help them with their experiments.
