BIOL 62/63: Provincial Level Biology provides an introduction to cell biology and human physiology. Topics covered include cell biology, mitosis and meiosis, bioenergetics, homeostasis genetics, digestion, respiration excretion, bones and muscles, nerves and immunity. This course is designed to build laboratory and field skills, scientific communication skills and critical thinking skills.

This introductory course introduces chemistry as an experimental science. Chemical symbols, nomenclature and the quantitative aspects of chemical reactions are emphasized. The fundamentals of atomic and molecular structure are presented. The field of organic chemistry is briefly introduced. The laboratory experiments provide opportunities to work with standard labware and apparatus, to observe a variety of chemical reactions, and to carry out some quantitative measurements.

This course moves on from material covered in Chemistry 50 to study practical chemistry.  Included topics are reaction kinetics, equilibrium, acid-base reactions,oxidation-reduction, gas laws and organic chemistry.  The lab portion of this course demonstrates the listed topics as well as provides the student with a chance to work with a variety of chemicals in a safe and effective manner

This course uses the study of Canadian literature to develop academic English reading, writing, research, and communications skills. Critical and creative thinking skills are used to analyze literature and improve understanding, while discussions and presentations build skills in speaking and listening. The study of various genres of Canadian literature builds reading, research, and reference skills, and academic essay skills are practices throughout the course. Normally, students with credit for Communications 12 must take ENGL 60 to prepare for college studies.

Intermediate Algebra provides an introduction to algebra. Topics include measurements, ratios, proportions and percents, equations and inequalities, polynomials, rational expressions, and graphing linear equations. A brief introduction to trigonometry completes this course.

This course is equivalent to Precalculus Math 11 and is a prerequisite for students wishing to take Maath 60 or enroll in most career programs.
This curse covers the following topics: linear equations and inequalities, graphing linear equations and inequalities, systems of equations with two and three variables, operations with polynomials, rational and radical expressions, quadratic equations and functions, exponential and logarithmic functions,; and an introduction to trigonometric functions.

This course prepares students with the knowledge and skills in algebra and trigonometry needed for further study in technical, vocational, and career programs. It is a continuation of Algebra and Trigonometry - Advanced Level. The course includes a review of basic algebra, functions, graphs, polynomials, transformations, systems of equations, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, identities and equations, application of transcendental function, and arithmetic and geometric sequences and series.  

Students meet with an instructor at the campus nearest them to discuss their goals and assess their skill level. Available in Grand Forks, Kaslo, Nakusp, Nelson, and Trail.

This course prepares students for further studies in math and sciences and is considered equivalent to an academic Grade 12 level math.

Physics 50 is a college preparatory course.  Topics include the study of motion, Newton's laws, momentum, energy, properties of matter, heat, sound, light, and electricity.
