Grade 10

Pre-Advanced Placement English (Pre-AP) ENG2DP
Students in this course will meet the same curriculum expectations and cover the same workload as students in ENG 2DI. This course is designed for independent learners who are highly motivated in the area communications, including reading, writing, oral communications and media studies. Some course content will be studied at a deeper level to enhance critical thinking skills in preparation for university. ENG2DI – English (Academic) is a similar course and you will not receive credit for taking
CREDIT EQIVALENTS: ENG2DI – English (Academic) is a similar course and you will not receive credit for taking both.
COURSE NOTE: COURSE NOTE: This course is recommended for students seeking enrichment and whose average in English exceeds the provincial average of 75% (a level 4 in English in previous years is highly recommended). Students need to complete a pre-AP application form from the English Department or Guidance Office and submit it to the Guidance Office.
CREDIT: 1 TYPE: Academic GRADE: 10
PREREQUISITE: ENG1DI – Academic English or ENG1DP – Pre-Advanced Placement English (Pre-AP) or ENG1PI – Applied English
Intensive French FSF2DN
This course provides opportunities for students to communicate in French about personally relevant, familiar,
and academic topics in real-life situations with increasing independence. Students will exchange information,
ideas, and opinions with others in guided and increasingly spontaneous spoken interactions. Students will
develop their skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing through the selective use of strategies that
contribute to effective communication. They will also increase their understanding and appreciation of diverse
French-speaking communities, and will develop skills necessary for lifelong language learning.

PREREQUISITE: FSF1DN – INTENSIVE – Core French
Enriched Science SNC2DN
This course enables students to enhance their understanding of concepts in biology, chemistry, earth and space science, and physics, and of the interrelationships between science, technology, society, and the environment. Students are also given opportunities to further develop their scientific investigation skills. Students will plan and conduct investigations and develop their understanding of scientific theories related to the connections between cells and systems in animals and plants; chemical reactions, with a particular focus on acid–base reactions; forces that affect climate and climate change; and the interaction of light and matter. The enriched program covers the same expectations as the Grade 10 Academic course. The purpose of the enriched program is to encourage problem-solving skills, higher order critical thinking skills, leadership and communication skills, and decision making skills; delivered in a program based on inquiry-based learning, collaboration, and self-directed learning.
The goals for enrichment are to encourage students to develop their own unique talents and demonstrate initiative as they investigate topics from the curriculum at a deeper level than the standard Academic course.
COURSE NOTE This program will include both structured classes, as well as opportunities for extra-curricular experiences (including field trips and guest-speakers), which may require an extra course enhancement fee of approximately $80.00.

PREREQUISITE: SNC1DI – Academic, Science
Pre Advanced Placement – Principles of Mathematics MPM2DP
This course enables students to develop an understanding of mathematical concepts related to algebra, analytic geometry, and measurement and geometry through investigation, the effective use of technology, and abstract reasoning. Students will investigate relationships, which they will then generalize as equations of lines, and will determine the connections between different representations of a linear relation. They will also explore relationships that emerge from the measurement of three-dimensional figures and two-dimensional shapes. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.
Students in the enriched course will be evaluated based on the same expectations as students in the regular academic course, but they will be challenged with more diverse problems and the underlying concepts of the course will be explored more deeply and broadly. Students who are interested in writing math contests are encouraged to take this course.
COURSE NOTE: The purpose of this Pre-Advanced Placement course is to provide mathematics students the opportunity to broaden the scope of their mathematics learning at their grade level, and to expand and enrich their problem solving skills. This course serves as a foundation for students wishing to take AP Calculus in grade 12
COURSE NOTE: COURSE NOTE: This course is recommended for students seeking enrichment and whose average in Mathematics exceeds the provincial average of 75% (a level 4 in math in previous years is highly recommended). Students need to complete a pre-AP application form from the Math Department or Guidance Office and submit it to the guidance office.
