Earth and Space Science (SES4U)

Grade 12    1.0 Credit

Course type:    University Preparation

This course develops your understanding of Earth and its place in the universe. You will investigate the properties of and forces in the universe and solar system and analyze techniques scientists use to generate knowledge about them. You will closely examine the materials of Earth, its internal and surficial processes, and its geological history, and will learn how Earth's systems interact and how they have changed over time. Throughout the course, you will learn how these forces, processes, and materials affect your daily life. The course draws on biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics in its consideration of geological and astronomical processes that can be observed directly or inferred from other evidence.
