The second-semester grade 12 Algebra Geometry class delved into the world of vectors. The students deepened their knowledge of this topic by learning real-world applications of vectors beyond three-space, such as ISBN codes (which can be represented as nine-dimensional vectors).
The grade 12 chemistry students studied factors influencing rates of reactions. During a lab, they mixed a thiosulfate solution with hydrochloric acid and timed how long it took for precipitate to form under different initial concentrations and temperatures.
The second semester Linear Algebra class began a new unit on permutations and combinations. Students explored concepts such as the Fundamental Counting Principle and the Rule of Sum, which will be used to solve a variety of problems in the coming weeks.
The second-semester grade 12 data management students began their unit in constructing and interpreting visual displays of data. For their first assignment, they tallied the rolling of a single die and the sums of the rolling of two dice. Afterwards, they displayed the data for both scenarios using tables and graphs.
