Grade 9 (Applied) Overall Expectations:

1 – Assess the major social, economic, and environmental costs and benefits of using electrical energy, distinguishing between renewable and non‑renewable sources, and propose a plan of action to reduce energy costs.

2 – Investigate, through inquiry, the properties of static and current electricity and the cost of the consumption of electrical energy.

  • Graph and interpret electricity consumption data collected over a period of time from electrical meters at home or in the community (e.g., their school, a local community centre) [PR, AI, C].

3 – Demonstrate an understanding of the concepts and principles of static and current electricity.
