Assessment for Learning
Enduring Understandings and Essential Questions


Science, Grade 10, Applied
SNC2P

Chemistry: Chemical Reactions and Their Practical Applications
Overall Expectations
By the end of this course, students will:
•       demonstrate an understanding of chemical reactions and the symbolic systems used to describe them;
•       investigate chemical reactions encountered in everyday life and their practical applications;
•       demonstrate an understanding of how chemical reactions relate to technological products and processes commonly encountered in everyday life.

Enduring Understanding:
Chemical reactions and symbols have practical uses in everyday life, home and workplace situations.

Essential Questions:

What technology takes advantage of this kind of chemical reaction?

Earth and Space Science: Weather Systems
Overall Expectations
By the end of this course, students will:
•       demonstrate an understanding of the factors affecting the fundamental processes of weather systems;
•       investigate and analyse trends in local and global weather conditions in order to forecast local weather patterns;
•       describe new technologies in meteorology and explain the impact of weather on our daily lives.

Enduring Understanding:
There are many global and local factors that both cause and affect our local weather.  At times these factors are possible to predict.

Essential Questions:

What impact does human behaviour/choices have on both current and future weather conditions?

Biology: Ecosystems and Human Activity
Overall Expectations
By the end of this course, students will:
•       demonstrate an understanding of ecosystems, including the relationship between ecological balance and the sustainability of life;
•       analyse natural and human threats to a local ecosystem and propose viable solutions to restore ecological balance;
•       relate issues to environmental sustainability with a particular focus on issues in Ontario and Canada.

Enduring Understanding:
Natural and human actions have an impact on the sustainability of life.

Essential Questions:

How can we as a community encourage a healthy balanced ecosystem?

Physics: Motion and Its Applications
Overall Expectations
By the end of this course, students will:
•       describe different kinds of motion and the quantitative relationships among displacement, velocity, and acceleration;
•       design and conduct investigations to study the displacement, velocity, and acceleration of a vehicle;
•       identify ways in which the principles of motion are used in developing new technologies and describe the consequences of such developments.
