The nature of physics experiments (in the high school classroom) creates a perfect situation to allow students to generate their own testable questions. Many of the safety concerns that might exist in other disciplines can often be avoided when teaching classical physics, as the materials are much more benign. This catalyst was originally designed and tested in an SPH 3U classroom using the concept of friction, but it could be easily adapted to other classes and scenarios.
Working in a group students will design and build a Space Box. They will become experts on a method of space exploration or a phenomenon in space. Each group will be choosing a topic, researching it,... read more
In this inquiry, students are shown how to do a simple titration with basic apparatus, using a dropper instead of a burette. This enables students to do several quick titrations using different... read more
The Climate Change unit in grade 10 science was the focus of our innovation project. We decided to incorporate aspects of the Specialist High Skills Major program into our project in order to develop... read more
