Welcome to Grade 9 science! You have chosen wisely: science makes the world go 'round. This course will enable you to deepen your understanding of the concepts and theories of science. You will study the universe, explore the science of chemistry, learn about static and current, and delve into ecology. You will develop your inquiry skills, learning, for example, how the interpretation of experimental data can provide indirect evidence to support the development of a scientific model. You will also consider the impact on society and the environment of technological applications of science.
