Brian said he almost dropped out of school when his friend told him about Ututor.
Having come overseas for his secondary education, his struggle was not just with studying but also with adapting to the new culture. To quote Brian, “Wilson, the Head of Student Guidance, had a very friendly conversation with me making me feel like family. He told me about his overseas study experience as an international student who left home young to study in Canada and now is building his own business of Ututor. He helped me get my English, Math, Physics tutoring courses and helped me fix my failed credit courses. Today, I stand on my feet again and I have him to thank!”
Students learn to investigate, use technology effectively along with abstract reasoning to understand the mathematical concepts of algebra, analytic geometry, linear systems and measurement. This they then put into general equations.
This course is meant to broaden the understanding of the relationships discovered in the previous course and extend their problem-solving abilities. Concepts of quadratic equations, trigonometry is introduced while the analytical geometry and linear systems concepts are strengthened.
This course builds on the understanding of mathematical functions by extending the exposure of concepts to linear and quadratic equations. Through investigations of properties, they learn about discrete and continuous functions that include trignometric and exponential functions to represent them algebraically and graphically. They also study the inverse of these functions.
The most important aspect of this course, however, is that they learn to reason and communicate with mathematics at the centre of their logic.
The learning from the grade 11 course is furthered by application of their reasoning to real-world situations. A specific course in data management (MDM4U) introduces students to the application of statistics to data management for those planning to enter into business, social sciences or humanities. The specific courses in calculus, vectors (MCV4U) and other advanced functions (MHF4U) help students build fundamentals and meet the prerequisites for some university courses in advanced math.
Assist students to build clarity and precision in their language to achieve more in their academic endeavours.
Grade 9 (ENG1D) - Students learn to develop better oral communication, reading, writing and media literacy skills needed for better results in school programs and life. This course also lays the foundation for grade 10.
Grade 10 (ENG2D) - This course along with building on the results of the previous course also engages students in the analysis and creation of various media works. The focus is on helping students build more effective communication strategies for themselves, laying a foundation for the university preparation courses that follow in grade 11 and 12.
Grade 11 (ENG3U) - Building on the grade 10 course, students move on to learn how to analyze more complicated texts from various time periods and cultures. This analysis is then applied to create various forms of oral, written and graphic media texts to build accuracy and clarity in communication.
Grade 12 (ENG4U) - This course will leverage the learning from the previous courses to help students not only analyze but also interpret and evaluate challenging texts. All the clarity and precision developed will be driven into presenting and developing better academic content especially in the written format.
The course builds the fundamentals of biology, chemistry, physics, earth and science to build its relation to technology, environment and society of today. Students not only understand scientific theories, but they also learn how to investigate the relationship of the theories to sustainable ecosystems, atomic and molecular structures, properties of the elements and compounds, the study of the universe, and the principles of electricity.
This course is structured to enhance the learning in the previous grade and help students leverage investigative techniques to enhance their understanding of the relationship between the theories and plants/animals particularly chemical reactions, interactions of light and matter, forces that impact climate and climate change.
Grade 11 (SBI3U) - The course builds the theoretical understanding of subjects like diversity, anatomy, growth and functions of plants by refining the investigative skills of students.
Grade 12 (SBI4U) - The understanding built in the previous course is further enhanced by helping students probe through investigative techniques in areas of metabolic processes, molecular genetics, homeostasis, evolution and population dynamics.
Through investigative techniques, students learn the relationship between solids, liquids and gases to explore how chemistry is used in the development of new products and processes. The focus lies in the importance of chemistry in the other branches of science.
The understanding of chemistry is deepened through the study of organic chemistry, energy changes and their rates, equilibrium and chemical systems, electrochemistry, and atomic and molecular structures. The emphasis is laid on chemistry in daily life along with the impact of chemical technology on the environment.
Grade 11 (SPH3U) - Students are assisted in understanding the fundamentals of kinematics, kinds of forces, energy transformations, mechanical waves and sounds, electricity and magnetism. They also learn the relationship between physics and technology to consider the impact of its application on society and the environment.
Grade 12 (SPH4U) - The experience from the previous course is enhanced with the additions of electrical, gravitational and magnetic fields with electromagnetic radiation.
