THE ONTARIO CURRICULUMScience


Course Overview

SNC2P online enables students to develop a deeper understanding of concepts in biology, chemistry, earth and space science, and physics, and to apply their knowledge of science in real-world situations. Students are given opportunities to develop further practical skills in scientific investigation. In SNC2P online, students will plan and conduct investigations into everyday problems and issues related to human cells and body systems; chemical reactions; factors affecting climate change; and the interaction of light and matter.

UNIT ONE
Laboratory Safety

Essential Question: How can you conduct a laboratory experiment while following strict safety rules?

In this unit, students will learn how to conduct experiments safely within laboratory settings.

UNIT TWO
Chemical Reactions

Essential Question: How does the study of chemical reactions impact our life at the environmental and societal level?

In this unit, students will learn what takes place during a chemical reaction and how to classify reactions based on their products. In addition, students will learn about nomenclature.

UNIT THREE
Light and Optics

Essential Question: How do we as humans manipulate light to help us in our every day lives?

In this unit, students will learn the basic properties of light. In addition, they will learn how they use mirrors and lenses to manipulate light in their every day lives.

UNIT FOUR
Earth's Dynamic Climate

Essential Question: What global impact are anthropogenic effects having on climate change and what can we do to save our environment?

In this unit, students will learn the forces associated with Earth’s climate and weather. They will learn the difference between natural effects and anthropogenic effects and the effect each has. Students will also investigate ways that they can protect their environment and slow the effects of climate change.

UNIT FIVE
Tissues, Organs, and Systems of Living Things

Essential Question: How to cells come together to create an organism such as a human? What technologies are there to help ensure that our cells remain functioning properly?

In this unit, students will examine the smallest component of life; a cell. They will discover what kinds of cells there are and what they are made of. Students will investigate how cells come together to create organisms and what potential diseases can occur when cells stop preforming their functions.
