THE GOALS OF THE SCIENCE PROGRAM

Achievement of both excellence and equity underlies the three major goals of the secondary science program. The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 9 and 10: Science, 2008 therefore outlines not only the skills and knowledge that students are expected to develop but also the attitudes that they will need to develop in order to use their knowledge and skills responsibly. The three goals of the science program are as follows:

 1. to relate science to technology, society, and the environment

 2. to develop the skills, strategies, and habits of mind required for scientific inquiry

3. to understand the basic concepts of science

Every course in the secondary science program focuses on these three goals. The goals are reflected within each strand of every course in the three overall expectations, which in turn are developed in corresponding sets of related specific expectations. The same three goals also underlie assessment of student achievement in science.​
