The Math Essentials 11 class has been focusing lately on building skills related to budgeting, credit cards, building credit ratings, understanding investing, and consumer awareness. Basically students have been getting a taste of what it would be like to live on their own and the daily expenses required to do so effectively. The information being covered is practical and useful in everyday life situations.
The Law 12 class has been focusing on forensics and the use of forensic work when applied to court cases. Actual Canadian law cases have been studied and discussed pertaining to this topic. Our latest side topic has been “what is the police role in discovering evidence in a particular case?” and how some evidence may not be permissible in court. We have studied the Robert Picton case in detail and students have gotten a detailed look at how forensics and other evidence worked to help solve the case.
