Calculus and Vectors - MCV4U
ILC Course Code: MCV4U-B
Grade 12, University Preparation, 1.0 credit
Advanced Functions (MHF4U-C)
In this course, you will build on your previous experience with functions and your developing understanding of rates of change. You will solve problems involving geometric and algebraic representations of vectors and representations of lines and planes in threedimensional space; broaden your understanding of rates of change to include the derivatives of polynomial, sinusoidal, exponential, rational, and radical functions; and apply these concepts and skills to the modelling of real-world relationships. You will also refine your use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics.
This course prepares you for careers in fields such as science, engineering, economics, and some areas of business. It will prepare you for university-level calculus, linear algebra, or physics courses.
Online submission of course work is required for this course using Microsoft Word © or OpenOffice Writer.
