  • Canadian History since WWI, Grade 10 (CHC2D)

    This course explores the local, national, and global forces that have shaped Canada’s national identity from World War I to the present. Students will investigate the challenge presented by economic, social, and technological changes and explore the contributions of individuals and groups to Canadian culture and society during this period. Students will use critical-thinking and communication skills to evaluate various interpretations of the issues and events of the period and to present their own points of view. 

    Prerequisite: Student must have successfully completed Grade 9

    Textbook: TBC
  • Introduction to Business, Grade 10 (BB120)

    This course introduces students to the world of business. Students will develop an understanding of the functions of business, including accounting, marketing, information and communication technology, human resources, and production, and of the importance of ethics and social responsibility. This course builds a foundation for further studies in business and helps students develop the business knowledge and skills they will need in their everyday lives.

    Post-requisite: Rising Grade 9 Crescent students who take this course are still required to take a Tech course during the Grade 9 academic year. They may also not take Grade 11 Accounting or Grade 11 Economics in Grade 9.

  • Accounting, Grade 11 (BAF3M)

    This course introduces students to the fundamental principles and procedures of accounting. Students will develop financial analysis and decision-making skills that will assist them in future studies and/or career opportunities in business. Students will acquire an understanding of accounting for a service and a merchandising business, computerized accounting, financial analysis and ethics and current issues in accounting.
     
    Prerequisite: Students must have successfully completed Grade 9.

  • Biology, Grade 11, University Preparation (SBI3U)

    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 the skills related to scientific investigation.

    Prerequisite: Science, Grade 10, Academic

    Textbooks: TBC
  • 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: TBC
  • 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

  • Advanced Functions, Grade 12 (MHF4U)

    This is our flagship summer course; we typically run several sections. Since Advanced Functions is a pre- or co-requisite for Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U), many students choose to take this course in the summer preceding their Grade 12 year. This reduces their mathematics course load and prepares them for success in Calculus and Vectors, a required course for university study in science, engineering and most commerce/business programs. Students report that taking Advanced Functions at Crescent School in the summer before Grade 12 prepares them extremely well for further study in mathematics.

    This course extends students' experience with functions. Students will investigate the properties of polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; broaden their understanding of rates of change; and develop facility in applying these concepts and skills. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics.

    Prerequisite:
     Functions, Grade 11, (MCR3U) University Preparation (Crescent Students may not use this as a pre-requisite for AP Calculus, MCV4U-1)

    Textbook: TBC
  • Data Management, Grade 12 (MDM4U)

    This course broadens students’ understanding of mathematics as it relates to managing data. Students will apply methods for organizing and analyzing large amounts of information; solve problems involving probability and statistics; and carry out a culminating investigation that integrates statistical concepts and skills. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics. Students planning to enter university programs in business, the social sciences and the humanities will find this course of particular interest. 
     
    Prerequisite: Functions, Grade 11, University Preparation, or Functions and Applications, Grade 11, University/College Preparation

  • English, Grade 12 (ENG4U)

    This course emphasizes the consolidation of the literacy, communication and critical and creative thinking skills necessary for success in academic and daily life. Students will analyze a range of challenging literary texts from various periods, countries and cultures; interpret and evaluate informational and graphic texts; and create oral, written and media texts in a variety of forms. An important focus will be on using academic language coherently and confidently, selecting the reading strategies best suited to particular texts and particular purposes for reading, and developing greater control in writing. The course is intended to prepare for university, college or the workplace.

    Prerequisite: English, Grade 11, University Preparation

  • Physics, Grade 12 (SPH4U)

    This course enables students to deepen their understanding of physics concepts and theories. Students will continue their exploration of energy transformations and the forces that affect motion, and will investigate electrical, gravitational and magnetic fields and electromagnetic radiation. Students will also explore the wave nature of light, quantum mechanics and special relativity. They will further develop their scientific investigation skills, learning, for example, how to analyze, qualitatively and quantitatively, data related to a variety of physics concepts and principles. Students will also consider the impact of technological applications of physics on society and the environment.
