Examining Spread

The grade 12 data management class began studying the measures of central tendency and spread. The students furthered their understanding of standard deviation by examining how they are used to calculate the z-score of a normal distribution data set.

It’s Element-ary

The grade 11 chemistry class took on periodic trends through an assignment where they made everything from cake pop models to massive diagrams in order to creatively represent patterns that occur in the table. They have now moved on to their chemical bonding unit and are studying the nature of the molecules in further detail.

As Clear As Crystal

The grade 11 chemistry class kicked off their chemical bonding unit with a lab to grow copper sulphate pentahydrate crystals. Students learned about the geologic processes behind crystal formation and studied the particle arrangement of different types of ionic crystals. Students will continue to grow their crystals throughout the week.

Captivating Chemistry

This week, the grade 9 students learned about the structure of atoms and atomic theory. They studied different subatomic particles, including protons and neutrons, and looked at the factors that define the size and shape of an atom’s orbitals.
