GENERAL AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The goals and aims of this course are concurrent with those set in the Ontario Curriculum Grades 9 and 10, 2008
Students will be given opportunities to further develop their scientific investigation skills. Students will plan and conduct investigations into practical problems and issues related to human cells and body systems; chemical reactions; factors affecting climate change; and the interaction of light and matter. (Ontario Curriculum, Science, Grade 10 Applied, pg 81)
TEACHING STRATEGIES:  Instructional methods will aim to target individual student learning styles.
