Functions (MCR3U-B) or
Functions and Applications (MCF3M-B)

Course Description

This course enables you to extend your knowledge of functions. You will investigate and apply properties of polynomial, exponential, and trigonometric functions; continue to represent functions numerically, graphically, and algebraically; develop facility in simplifying expressions and solving equations; and solve problems that address applications of algebra, trigonometry, vectors, and geometry. You will reason mathematically and communicate your thinking as you solve multi-step problems.This course prepares you for a variety of college technology programs.

A scanner may be required for submission of assignments by e-Journal.
