Good afternoon, my name is Amelia Barnes, I come from Nova Scotia, Canada. This is my second year teaching in the Sino-Canadian program at Nanchang No. 2 High School. This year I am responsible for teaching Physics for the Grade 11 students and Biology for the Grade 12 students. The study of physics helps students to understand the laws that govern the universe and this course deals with describing and analyzing motion. Students use both mathematical concepts to work through physical problems and their English language skills to understand and explain concepts.
Biology is the study of life and students will experience life from the cellular level up to the level of ecosystems where many organisms work together. Students will increase their scientific knowledge as they learn new vocabulary and are able to explain the intricate and unique processes of life.
