The Overall Goals of the Ontario Science Program

Achievement of both excellence and equity underlies the three major goals of the secondary science program.  The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 9 through 12, therefore outlines  not only the skills and knowledge that students are expected to develop but also the attitudes that they will need to develop in order to use their knowledge and skills responsibly. The three goals of the science program are as follows:

  • to understand the basic concepts of science
  • to develop the skills, strategies, and habits of mind required for scientific inquiry
  • to relate science to technology, society, and the environment
