ON--Locally Developed Compulsory Credit Courses
1.1.1: Understanding Basic Concepts
SIL1.02: explain the importance of a “fair test” for troubleshooting and testing everyday science problems (e.g., diagnosing computer problems, repairing automobiles, testing faulty electrical circuits, determining safety of consumer products).
1.2.1: Developing Skills of Inquiry and Communication
SIL2.01: formulate questions about problems or issues that can be scientifically tested (e.g., Which paper airplane flies the farthest or fastest? Which metal retains more heat? Which colour/brand of hair dye lasts the longest? Which pair of sunglasses are the best filters of the sun’s rays? Which location enables us to see the stars most clearly at night?);
SIL2.02: plan, conduct, and refine simple investigations to answer student-generated questions;
SIL2.05: assess data to make inferences and conclusions and to answer questions and refine procedures;
SIL2.06: communicate plans, observations, and results using a variety of oral, written, and graphic representations, and including the use of SI units, where appropriate (e.g., tables, charts, journals, using a variety of technologies).
1.3.1: Relating Science to Technology, Society, and the Environment
SIL3.03: demonstrate an understanding of how problem-solving and decision-making activities in the workplace use scientific process skills (e.g., sampling, researching, recording).
2.1.1: Understanding Basic Concepts
CPM1.04: describe the physical properties (e.g., texture, lustre, solubility, clarity, colour, state, electrical conductivity) of common materials (e.g., paints, solvents, metals), using appropriate scientific terminology;
2.2.1: Developing Skills of Inquiry and Communication
CPM2.02: use appropriate laboratory safety and disposal procedures while conducting investigations (e.g., wear safety glasses, practice orderliness and cleanliness, follow WHMIS guidelines and emergency procedures, use proper procedures for handling and disposal);
CPM2.03: organize and record the observations of the investigations, using appropriate formats (e.g., charts, tables, diagrams, graphs, science journals);
CPM2.04: interpret and communicate the results of investigations (e.g., classify the materials tested, write conclusions).
3.1.1: Understanding Basic Concepts
BSA1.01: describe the basic life-sustaining processes of organisms, including single-celled and complex organisms (e.g., ingestion of food, waste removal, gas exchange, material transport, response to environmental stimuli, reproduction), using appropriate scientific vocabulary;
BSA1.02: relate structures involved in life-sustaining processes to their function (e.g., nucleus and reproduction, membranes and diffusion, components of respiratory system to gas exchange);
3.2.1: Developing Skills of Inquiry and Communication
BSA2.05: communicate observations, interpretation of results, and information through appropriate formats (e.g., diagrams, graphs, group discussions, and written work).
4.1.1: Understanding Basic Concepts
PEC1.01: use scientific terminology during investigations to describe basic electrical concepts and related units of measure (e.g., current – ampere, potential difference – volts, source, load, open and closed circuit, conductor, insulator);
PEC1.02: demonstrate an understanding that electrical energy can be converted into other forms of usable energy within electrical circuits (e.g., heat, light, motion);
PEC1.04: use a variety of symbols to represent different components in electrical circuits (e.g., ammeter, wire, switch, power source, load, voltmeter).
4.2.1: Developing Skills of Inquiry and Communication
PEC2.03: conduct investigations, using electrical materials, tools, and equipment safely;
PEC2.06: communicate plans and results of investigations about electrical circuits, using a variety of oral, written, and graphic formats.
4.3.1: Relating Science to Technology, Society, and the Environment
PEC3.01: identify circuits and their components in household and workplace settings (e.g., fuses, circuit breakers, switches, loads in appliances, electronic equipment, household wiring, handheld tools);
PEC3.02: develop a logical checklist to troubleshoot an electrical device of personal choice (e.g., CD or DVD player, hair dryer or curling iron, VCR, electric floor cleaner, electronic balance, calculator, toaster, flashlight, electric drill).
