Eastglen offers different pathways for science courses. Students who meet the prerequisites can move from one stream to another.
Science 10 is a course designed for students who have successfully completed both Math 9 and Science 9. This course is the prerequisite for all the 20-level courses: Biology 20, Chemistry 20, Physics 20, Science 20.
Science 10AP should only be considered by students prepared to take on the additional challenge of an enriched program. Students registering for this program should have an interest in science, and a commitment to academic excellence.
Science 14 is recommended for students who find science courses difficult, for students planning to enter the world of work, or who are not continuing in a post-secondary program requiring a 30-level science course. This course is the prerequisite for Science 24 which completes the requirement of a 20-level science course necessary to earn a high school diploma.
Students pursuing entry to science related programs at post-secondary institutions should complete the 20/30 sequence in at least two science courses. Students interested in pursuing careers in the most competitive science related programs should complete the 20/30 sequence in all three sciences: Biology 30, Chemistry 30 and Physics 30. Science 30 can be used towards university entrance for some programs. Check post-secondary requirements to determine which science courses are most appropriate.
