Grade 12 Calculus and Vectors, University Preparation
This course builds on students’ previous experience with functions and their developing understanding of rates of change. Students will solve problems involving geometric and algebraic representations of vectors and representation of lines and planes in three-dimensional space; broaden their understanding of rates of change to include the derivative of the polynomial, sinusoidal, exponential, rational and radical functions; and apply these concepts and skills to the modelling of real-world relationships. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics. This course is intended for students who choose to pursue careers in fields such as science, engineering, economics and some areas of business, including those students who will be required to take a university- level calculus, linear algebra or physics course.
