  3. Grade 9 Academic Science (SNC1D0) • In this course, you learn about Ecology, Chemistry, Electricity and Astronomy. • We go on field trips, you learn about the periodic table and do experiments with chemicals, you will build electric circuits and you will learn about our solar system and stars. • With this course, you can go onto grade 10 academic science or grade 10 applied science • Academic courses have more emphasis on theory and learning details and facts but still include hands on activities. Academic courses are required for University courses in grade 11. Go back to course description page

  4. Grade 9 Applied Science (SNC1P0) • In this course, you learn about Ecology, Chemistry, Electricity and Astronomy. • We go on field trips, you learn about the periodic table and do experiments with chemicals, you will build electric circuits and you will learn about our solar system and stars. • With this course, you can go onto grade 10 academic science or grade 10 applied science. If switching to academic, a 70% average is recommended. • Applied courses have more emphasis on practical activities with less emphasis on theory. With applied courses, you typically take college level courses in grade 11. Go back to course description page

  5. Grade 9 Applied Science for English Language Learners. (SNC1PL) • In this course, you learn about Ecology, Chemistry, Electricity and Astronomy with an emphasis on literacy skills. • We go on field trips, you learn about the periodic table and do experiments with chemicals, you will build electric circuits and you will learn about our solar system and stars. • With this course, you can go onto grade 10 academic science or grade 10 applied science. If switching to academic, an 80% average is recommended. • Applied courses have more emphasis on practical activities with less emphasis on theory.
