Presented in both English and French, Science 10 is an integrated academic course that helps students in Alberta, Canada better understand and apply fundamental concepts and skills common to biology, chemistry, physics, and the Earth sciences. The major goals of the program are: (1) to develop in students an understanding of the interconnecting ideas and principles that transcend and unify the natural science disciplines; (2) to provide students with an enhanced understanding of the scientific world view, inquiry, and enterprise; (3) to help students attain the level of scientific awareness essential for all citizens in a scientifically literate society; (4) to help students make informed decisions about further studies and careers in science; and (5) to provide students with opportunities for acquiring knowledge, skills, and attitudes that contribute to personal development. This booklet includes information on general and specific learner expectations and units on: energy from the sun, energy and matter in living systems, energy and matter in chemical change, and change and energy. Each unit outlines the major concepts and the understanding, skills, and interrelationships among science, technology, and society that students should be able to demonstrate. (JRH)
