  MYP Biology– Grade 9
 

MYP Aims and Objectives

The aims and objectives of the subject groups address all aspects of learning including knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes:

Knowledge: The facts that the student should be able to recall to ensure competence in the subject.

Understanding: How the student will be able to interpret, apply or predict aspects of the subject.

Skills: How the student will be able to apply what has been learned in new situations.

Attitudes: How the student is changed by the learning experience.


MYP Course Aims

The aims of any MYP subject and of the personal project state in a general way what the teacher may expect to teach or do, and what the student may expect to experience or learn. In addition they suggest how the student may be changed by the learning experience. The aims of the teaching and study of sciences are to encourage and enable students to: develop inquiring minds and curiosity about science and the natural world; acquire knowledge, conceptual understanding and skills to solve problems and make informed decisions in scientific and other contexts; develop skills of scientific inquiry to design and carry out scientific investigations and evaluate scientific evidence to draw conclusions; communicate scientific ideas, arguments and practical experiences accurately in a variety of ways; think analytically, critically and creatively to solve problems, judge arguments and make decisions in scientific and other contexts; appreciate the benefits and limitations of science and its application in technological developments; understand the international nature of science and the interdependence of science, technology and society, including the benefits, limitations and implications imposed by social, economic, political, environmental, cultural and ethical factors; demonstrate attitudes and develop values of honesty and respect for themselves, others, and their shared environment.

  MYP Chemistry– Grade 10
 

Course Description

MYP Chemistry is a first year chemistry course designed for students who wish to take an honors level chemistry class. Topics covered in the course include investigation and experimentation, atomic and molecular structure, chemical bonds, conservation of matter and stoichiometry, gases and their properties, acids and bases, solutions, chemical thermodynamics, reaction rates, chemical equilibrium, organic and biochemistry, and nuclear processes. In order to enroll in the class, students must have completed Algebra I and Geometry and is concurrently enrolled in Algebra II. To fulfill the laboratory requirement of the course, all students will be required to do labs during the designated class period.
