This week, the Grade 12 Biology classes started the first of their “Hot Topics” projects. Students are working together in groups to analyse scientific articles related to topics studied in the curriculum. Presentations this week included an in-depth analysis of the use of antibiotics and a study on stem cell research.
In the Grade 12 Data Management class, students finished up their unit on combinations and have now moved on to probability. Through the use of cards, coins, and dice, they have been modelling different situations and calculating the experimental and theoretical probabilities. This useful skill has many real life applications, and will come in handy for any future experiments.
