Grade 12 AP Physics students have begun their study of electricity and magnetism. Students begin this unit with a lab, which involves analysis of circuits using Kirchoff’s laws. This lab also serves as an introduction to AC circuit analysis and the function of an oscilloscope.
AP Physics students visited the University of Toronto Institute of Aerospace Studies, where they were introduced to many subjects of post-graduate research, from computational fluid dynamics to aircraft design optimization. Students had the opportunity to interact with professors, graduate students, and PhD candidates to learn more about the research conducted at UTAIS.
In the Grade 12 English class, students have been reading short stories from authors such as Leo Tolstoy, Edgar Allan Poe, and Anton Chekhov. Students have discussed and reflected upon the different writing styles and devices, allowing them to analyze how writing has changed and evolved over time.
