Advanced Functions - MHF4U

ILC Course Code: MHF4U-C

Grade 12, University Preparation, 1.0 credit

Functions (MCR3U-C) or
Mathematics for College Technology (MCT4C-B)

Course Description

This course extends your experience with functions. You will investigate the properties of polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; develop techniques for combining functions; broaden your understanding of rates of change; and develop facility in applying these concepts and skills. You will also refine your 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.
