Course Description - Sph3u

 

This course develops students’ understanding of the basic concepts of physics. Students study the laws of dynamics and explore different kinds of forces, the quantification and forms of energy (mechanical, sound, light, thermal, and electrical), and the way energy is transformed and transmitted. They develop scientific-inquiry skills as they verify accepted laws and solve both assigned problems and those emerging from their investigations. Students analyse the interrelationships between physics and technology, and consider the impact of technological applications of physics on society and the environment.

Course Description - Sph4u

 

This course enables students to deepen their understanding of the concepts and theories of physics. Students further explore the laws of dynamics and energy transformations, and investigate electrical, gravitational, and magnetic fields; electromagnetic radiation; and the interface between energy and matter. They will further develop inquiry skills, learning, for example, how the interpretation of experimental data can provide indirect evidence to support the development of a scientific model. Students will also consider the impact on society and the environment of technological applications of physics.

Online Grade Book The Online Grade Book is an achievement tracking tool that is intended keep students and parents informed. The Grade Book is frequently updated, allowing students and parents to monitor achievement throughout the semester.

Course Description - Sph4c

 

This course develops students' understanding of the basic concepts of physics. Students will explore these concepts with respect to motion; mechanical, electrical, electromagnetic, energy transformation, hydraulic, and pneumatic systems; and the operation of commonly used tools and machines. They will develop their scientific investigation skills as they test laws of physics and solve both assigned problems and those emerging from their investigations. Students will also consider the impact of technological applications of physics on society and the environment.

Welcome to yet another fun-filled semester of discovery, compelling discussions, general nerdliness, and terrible, terrible physics-related jokes and of course, puns. Check here often for special announcements and updates.
