haha, don't have to address questions right to me. everyone in isci 2013 is happy to help.

i'm not sure about the summer online guides. my guess is that they will be up soon. that's beyond the realm of the student society, ask someone in isci admin and post your findings here! It is my understanding that the guides will be more instructional in nature. I think physics had some online demonstrations for example.

If you're just looking for a tune-up, I'd recommend some of these sites, and try out the practice quizzes:

You should find these all really easy (it's just review of grade 12), I'd recommend trying the quizzes out only if it's been a while since you've taken the course, or if you have some spare time and want to test how much you remember. If there is a particular section in which you have weaknesses, however, this can be a good time to prepare yourself.

For physics:
http://www.nelson.com/nelson/school/secondary/science/0176259880/studquizzes.html Chapters 1-8,11-13, Focus on units 1 and 5 probably... 1 for sure, otherwise you will get lost really fast in physics.

Also take a look at http://www.mcgrawhill.ca/school/booksites/physics+12/student+resources/toc/index.php# for more help, (this has more specific content study quizzes that you may find more helpful).

For chemistry:
http://www.nelson.com/nelson/school/secondary/science/0176259864/studquizzes.html - Chapters 1, 3-10, if you want to focus in.. probably units 2 and 4

As well as, http://www.mcgrawhill.ca/school/booksites/chemistry+12/student+resources/toc/index.php#

For biology:
http://www.science.nelson.com/0176259872/studquizzes.html - Chapters 1-6,11-13,14, see http://isci.forumotion.com/isci-2014-f22/making-up-the-third-12u-science-t123.htm for more details

http://www.mcgrawhill.ca/school/booksites/biology+12/student+resources/toc/index.php# (The chapters here are a bit different, look at Units 3 and 4 here)

For Earth Sciences:

This is the textbook we use for earth sciences in iSci. If you want a headstart, use the dropdown menu on the side and look through chapter summaries! (Or pick up the texbook now if you are really keen and you can practice the true/false, multiple choice quizzes).

For Math:
You start off building on content from grade 12. Really, my best advice is to review your high school notes, especially from first semester (Calculus)... if you had trouble in math, I think the best way to learn is to try to find a friend now to help you out in areas you need specific help in. Focus on understanding what functions are, and know the rules in calculus thoroughly (chain rule, product rule, quotient rule, etc.). If you have some exposure to integration (not necessary) but it will greatly help.

If you have any further questions about what content you should know, or if you want to make sure you will be academically prepared for the program, please don't hesitate in posting on the forum or sending an e-mail to iscisociety@gmail.com (though don't stress out at all, if you were accepted, you should be totally set for the program -- rumor is your year will be smarter and harder-working than ours too, Smile)
