Trafalgar Castle School is excited to offer several courses as part of our co-ed summer school program. These courses are full credit courses and are open to students in the community who have the required prerequisites.
These courses will complement our regular Day School program and will be taught by a qualified teacher. Classes will be through distance and online learning. Students will be responsible for purchasing their own textbooks and supplies.
This course focuses on guidelines for making nutritious food choices. Students will investigate factors that influence food choices, including beliefs, attitudes, current trends, traditional eating patterns, food-marketing strategies, and individual needs. Students will also explore the environmental impact of a variety of food choices at the local and global level.
The course provides students with opportunities to develop food-preparation skills and introduces them to the use of social science research methods in the area of food and nutrition.
Grade 11 Anthropology, Psychology & Sociology (HSP3U) provides students with opportunities to think critically about theories, questions, and issues related to anthropology, psychology, and sociology. Students will develop an understanding of the approaches and research methods used by social scientists.
In HSP3U online, students 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.
This course extends students’ experience with functions. Students will investigate the properties of polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; develop techniques for combining functions; broaden their understanding of rates of change; and develop facility in applying these concepts and skills. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics.
This course is intended both for students taking the Calculus and Vectors course as a prerequisite for a university program and for those wishing to consolidate their understanding of mathematics before proceeding to any one of a variety of university programs.
The courses will run Monday, July 5 through Friday, July 30, hours TBC but approximately 5.5-6 hours/day of virtual instruction and homework/review time as needed.
Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Students have three days after the course starts to withdraw less an administrative fee of $150. Trafalgar Castle School reserves the right to cancel the course if there is insufficient enrolment. If the course is cancelled students will be notified and paid fees will be refunded.
