Physics - SPH3U

This course develops students’ understanding of the basic concepts of physics. Students will explore kinematics, with an emphasis on linear motion; different kinds of forces; energy transformations; the properties of mechanical waves and sound; and electricity and magnetism. They will enhance their scientific investigation skills as they test laws of physics. In addition, they will analyse the interrelationships between physics and technology, and consider the impact of technological applications of physics on society and the environment.

Intro to Kinesiology - PSK4U

This course focuses on the study of human movement and of systems, factors, and principles involved in human development. Students will learn about the effects of physical activity on health and performance, the evolution of physical activity and sport, and the physiological, psychological, and social factors that influence an individual’s participation in physical activity and sport. The course prepares students for university programs in physical education and health, kinesiology, health sciences, health studies, recreation, and sports administration.

Intro to Anthropology, Psychology & Sociology - HSP3U

Grade 11 Anthropology, Psychology & Sociology (HSP3U) provides students with opportunities to think critically about theories, questions, and issues related to these fields. In this course, students will develop an understanding of the approaches and research methods used by social scientists. They will be given opportunities to explore theories from a variety of perspectives, to conduct social science, and to become familiar with current thinking on a range of issues within the three disciplines.

World Religions - HRT3M

HRT3M allows students to explore various world religions and belief traditions in greater detail, understanding how their sacred writings and teachings meet various human needs. Students will also examine how time and place influence these religious systems, and develop research and inquiry skills related to the study of human expressions of belief.

Literary Features of the Quran - AAR301

The power of Quran was not only derived from its message, but also from its inimitable literary beauty and eloquence. In this course, the students will explore the use of a wide variety of rhetorical devices, its style of narrating parable and stories and the coherence, structure, and order of its ‘chapters’. This course will provide the students with a better appreciation of the Quran from a literary perspective and in the process stimulates interest in, and provide tools and resources for, further study of the Quran.

Into to Arabic Reading - AAR302

After a thorough mastery over the foundations of Arabic Grammar and Morphology, the next big step is Arabic Reading. In this course, the students will be exposed to Arabic readings. They will develop the skill to implement the knowledge of Grammar and Morphology to translate Arabic texts into English. They will also be exposed to reading the Arabic texts without any tashkeel or vowels. This will be a stepping stone to reading beginner level Classical Tafsir texts or exegetists of the Quran.
