  • Biology, Grade 11, University Preparatory (SB13U)

    This course furthers students’ understanding of the processes that occur in biological systems. Students will study theory and conduct investigations in the areas of biodiversity; evolution; genetic processes; the structure and function of animals; and the anatomy, growth, and function of plants. The course focuses on the theoretical aspects of the topics under study, and helps students refine skills related to scientific investigation.

    Prerequisite: Science, Grade 10, Academic

    Textbook:  See the 2022 textbook list here.
  • Introduction to Computer Science, Grade 11, University Preparatory (ICS3U)

    This course introduces students to computer science. Students will design software independently and as part of a team, using industry-standard programming tools and applying the software development life-cycle model. They will also write and use subprograms within computer programs. Students will develop creative solutions for various types of problems as their understanding of the computing environment grows. They will also explore environmental and ergonomic issues, emerging research in computer science, and global career trends in computer-related fields.

    Prerequisite: None

    Textbook:  See the 2022 textbook list here.
  • Chemistry, Grade 11, University Preparation (SCH3U)

    This course enables students to deepen their understanding of chemistry through the study of the properties of chemicals and chemical bonds; chemical reactions and quantitative relationships in those reactions; solutions and solubility; and atmospheric chemistry and the behaviour of gases. Students will further develop their analytical skills and investigate the qualitative and quantitative properties of matter, as well as the impact of some common chemical reactions on society and the environment. This course is taught and evaluated to a high standard. Successful completion SCH3U in our Summer Academic Program will allow a student to enter Advanced Placement Chemistry, which is offered at Crescent School, with confidence.

    Prerequisite: Science, Grade 10 Academic

    Textbook:  See the 2022 textbook list here.
  • Physics, Grade 11, University Preparation (SPH3U) 

    This course develops students’ understanding of the basic concepts of physics. Students will explore kinematics, with an emphasis on linear motion; different kinds of forces; energy transformations; the properties of mechanical waves and sound; and electricity and magnetism. They will enhance their scientific investigation skills as they test laws of physics. In addition, they will analyse the relationships between physics and technology, and consider the impact of technological applications of physics on society and the environment.

    Prerequisite: Science, Grade 10 Academic
