Comments about Developmental Science Certificate - At the institution - Montreal - Québec

• Objectives
Among the benefits of this program are: * close teacher-student associations * attention to individual abilities and problems * integrated study of mathematics and science * improvement of study skills
• Entry requirements
Developmental Science (DSP) is for students whose grades in advanced Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics do not meet entrance requirements for the Science Program.
Developmental Science Certificate
• Course description
Term 1
Course Number     Course Name     C - L - H     Hrs
201-009-50    Mathematics 536 Upgrading    3 - 2 - 3    75

Description:    Introduction to functions and their graphs, inverse functions, trigonometric functions, exponential and logarithmic functions and word problem applications. Graphing of these functions with computer software. Continuation of trigonometry covers circular functions, trigonometric equations, laws of sines and cosines and trigonometric identities.

202-006-06    Chemistry 534 Upgrading    3 - 3 - 4    90

203-006-06    Physics 534 Upgrading    4 - 2 - 4    90

Description:    The content of this course is very close to that of Physics 534: the nature and transmission of light, reflection, refraction, lenses, and optical devices. Also, mechanics are taught: kinematics, the effects of forces, free fall, friction, simple machines, work and energy. It is designed for students who have taken Physics 534 in high school, but did not meet the grade requirements for admission to the Science program.

Term 2
Course Number     Course Name     C - L - H     Hrs
201-NYA-05    Calculus I    3 - 2 - 3    75

Description:    Limits and continuity, the derivative and differentiation, applications of the derivative to curve sketching, maximum/minimum and related rates problems, anti-differentiation and the indefinite integral are studied in this course.

202-NYA-05    General Chemistry    3 - 2 - 3    75

Description:    This course is required for all pre-university Science students. Topics include: the basic theories of atoms, bonding and the states of matter; a brief review of stoichiometry; and chemical vocabulary. Emphasis will be placed on the role of the periodic table in predicting properties, and on the nature of the covalent bond. Some discussion of quantum theory, hydrogen-bonding and phase changes will also be included.

203-NYA-05    Mechanics    3 - 2 - 3    75

Corequisites:    201-103-77 - Differential and Integral Calculus I
201-NYA-05 - Calculus I
Description:    Mechanics is the first course in the Physics sequence, covering the basic concepts of force, energy and momentum and the laws governing motion. Students will acquire some familiarity with the acquisition and analysis of data by computer. Topics include: kinematics in one and two dimensions, dimensions, uniform circular motion, Newton’s laws, gravitation, frictional forces, work, energy and power, collisions and conservation of momentum, rotational kinematics and dynamics, torque, angular momentum and moment of inertia.
