Advanced Functions (MHF4U) This course extends students' experience with functions. Students will investigate the properties of polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; develop techniques for combining functions; broaden their understanding of rates of change; and develop facility in applying these concepts and skills. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics. This course is intended both for students taking the Calculus and Vectors course as a prerequisite for a university program and for those wishing to consolidate their understanding of mathematics before proceeding to any one of a variety of university programs. Prerequisite: Functions, Grade 11, University Preparation, or Mathematics for College Technology, Grade 12, College Preparation
Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U) Course not scheduled at present. Prerequisite MHF4U
Data Management (MDM4U) This course is designed to satisfy the prerequisites for a number of university programs that may
include statistics courses, such as those found in the social sciences and the humanities. The Counting and Probability
strand extends the basic probability concepts learned in the elementary school program
and introduces counting techniques such as the use of permutations and combinations;
these techniques are applied to both counting and probability problems. The Probability
Distributions strand introduces the concept of probability distributions; these include the
normal distribution, which is important in the study of statistics. In the Organization of
Data for Analysis strand, students examine, use, and develop methods for organizing
large amounts of data, while in the Statistical Analysis strand, students investigate and
develop an understanding of powerful concepts used to analyse and interpret large
amounts of data.
Prerequisite: MCR3U or MCF3M
Mathematics for College Technology (MCT4C) This course enables students to broaden their understanding of real-world applications of mathematics. Students will analyse data using statistical methods; solve problems involving applications of geometry and trigonometry; solve financial problems connected with annuities, budgets, and renting or owning accommodation; simplify expressions; and solve equations. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.
